米の大槻教授、迷信をメッタ斬り

Halloween を前に、米国の科学者が「おばけもゾンビも吸血鬼もみーんなウソ!」と興ざめにもわめき立てています。

おばけについて:
Walking among us violates Newton's law of action and reaction.
「人間を透り抜けて歩くなんて、作用・反作用の法則に反している」
(私的反論: おばけは自然法則を超越した存在である)

ゾンビについて:
ハイチの少年が葬儀の1日後に墓からよみがえったという有名な事例を挙げて
The boy, who was paralyzed and could not communicate, had been poisoned with toxins from a relative of the deadly Japanese pufferfish.
「少年はふぐの毒に似たものに冒(おか)され、麻痺して何も伝えられなかっただけ」
(私的反論: ほんとにゾンビな場合もある)

吸血鬼について:
If a vampire sucked one person's blood each month - turning each victim into a vampire - after a couple of years there would be no people left, just vampires.
「吸血鬼が毎月1人の人間を吸い、吸われた人は吸血鬼になるとすると、2、3年のうちに全員吸血鬼になってしまう」
(私的反論: 確かに、2の33乗は約85億。1+33=34カ月後にオールドラキュラになってしまうが、吸血鬼が8人くらいのうちにニンニクでやっつけてしまっている)

息巻いているわりには、ありふれた理屈が多いようですな。
まあそうムキにならず「うしろの百太郎」でもお読みなさいと、なだめてあげてください。

おや、こんな時間に窓から新聞が・・・


今日のワンポイント
as long as ...

「... する限り、... である限り」
接続詞として使い、条件を表します。
as far as も 「... する限り」ですが、こちらは範囲を表します。

I have nothing against people who like horror movies, as long as they don't mix reality with fiction.
「現実とフィクションをごっちゃにすることさえなければ、ホラー映画好きの人をとやかく言うつもりはない」

私の夫はアメリカのバークレー校で博士を取得したドクターです。が、彼も見てしまったんですね。UFOをカリフォルニアで。UFOやミステリーサークルと吸血鬼とゾンビを一緒にするのは、苦しいです。UCLAには昔からお化けの気を研究するところがあり、ゴーストバスターを霊能力者と神父さんとやっています。これは、真剣に現実に起きている現象から人の苦しみを救うためです。アメリカのヒストリーチャンネルやデイスカバリーチャンネルを是非見て下さいね。実証もすばらしいですが、怖いくらいです。
でも、無理に否定し続けていると、地球上で住む場所がなくなって辛くなると思います。決して追いつめる気はありませんが。でも、世界中の人がトリックを使ってUFOを撮影したり、お化けを撮影していることになりますよね?
これは、人を否定しているという失礼な行為なのではないかとすごく思います。
信じないのなら、おとなしくしていれば良いのではないでしょうか?声を大きくしてどうどうと主張すべきことは、平和、反戦、銃禁止くらいだと思いますが。

totoro さん、こんにちは。見てしまいましたか!なるほど、恐怖漫画だけでなくそういう研究書も読んでみたいものです。おばけさんが思い通りに出てきてくれれば、実証も容易なんですけどね。しかし霊能力や超能力は、テレビ出演などの不純な目的で使うと消えてしまうそうです(「うしろの百太郎」より)。

I could not carry us up much higher than common, desperate shout to alarm more than most of the lads disliked the business, the captain hesitated about bearing up, and hoisted the French, which was just of an attached slave, which it was of great respectability, though spared by Marble and myself could have hugged him for measures that deserved praise.
