Geographic location[edit]

The Turks and Caicos, as are the Bahamas and Bermuda, are not Caribbean islands. They are actually located in the Atlantic Ocean, as Cuba, Hispaniola, Puerton Rico and the islands of the Leeward and Windward islands form the border between the Caribbean and the Atlantic proper. It is a common error, because of the islands' common connection with Britain. Keeble McFarlame Toronto, Canada — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:33, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Etymology of the name[edit]

This article says: "Turks and Caicos Islands are named after the Turk's-cap cactus (Melocactus communis)" / Is it true? The Turks were not wearing the fez before 1826! Böri (talk) 07:43, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Notable People[edit]

The entry of Trevor Ariza has been deleted under the Notable People section due to the fact that Trevor Ariza was not born in Turk and Caicos, but in Miami, Florida. He is only of maternal descent. - sglooney316 03:31, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

BOGUS Economic Statistics[edit]

The economic statistics are from 2006 and 2007, BEFORE the economic meltdown. Even more outrageous, the sum parts of the economy add up to ~ 124% -- a very unique economy! Can someone who knows how to access accurate info please correct this bovine excrement? Tapered (talk) 20:03, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
