The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was:

> Do coconuts *really* migrate?

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Let's find out!
}
} Here beside me is bin full of coconuts with detailed directions on how
} to grovel to the Oracle written on them. You are over there. Let's
} see...Oh look! One of the coconuts is levitating of its own free will
} and, wow, it looks like it is picking up speed and OW!  That had to
} have hurt supplicant. Well, since that coconut is over there already
} why don't you pick it up and read the directions on how to grovel? See
} the nice words, and oh! Look out!  Seems another coconut has magically
} migrated your direction. And look another one. And another. Oh how
} clever the coconuts are, you can run, but you can not hide... wow, it
} seems those first few coconuts were a tad ahead of the main body of the
} migration.  Look -all-the-rest- of the coconuts are now levitating in
} mass and preparing to migrate your way. Aren't the Natural Sciences
} soooooo exciting?
}
} You owe the Oracle a grovel.
