觉得斧头侠好好玩标题就这么翻了……这个绝逼不是一个超级英雄啊= =

内容略猎奇……但是是真事来着


我觉得前几天似乎在哪里看到过这个连环杀手斧男的案子介绍的……

但是怎么都想不起来在哪里啊!!!

然后昨天补American Horror Story的时候又看到他了……

这是缘分啊!!

就想把他那封著名的嘲笑警方、玩弄一般市民的信翻一下……

Hell, March 13, 1919
来自地狱,1919年3月13日
Esteemed Mortal:
尊敬的人类:
They have never caught me and they never will. They have never seen me, for I am 
invisible, even as the ether that surrounds your earth. I am not a human being, but 
a spirit and a demon from the hottest hell. I am what you Orleanians and your 
foolish police call the Axeman.
他们没有抓到我、也绝不会抓到我。他们从没见过我,因为我是隐形的,就像笼罩你们土地上的
空气一般。我并非人类,而是恶灵,从炽热的地狱深处来的恶魔。我就是你们这群奥尔良佬们和
你们的愚蠢警察所叫的那个“斧男”。
When I see fit, I shall come and claim other victims. I alone know whom they shall 
be. I shall leave no clue except my bloody axe, besmeared with blood and brains of 
he whom I have sent below to keep me company.
我觉得时机成熟时,我便降临,带来更多受害者。只有我知道他们是谁。我不会留下任何线索—
—除了我那被血浆和脑浆弄得污秽不堪的血淋淋的斧子,而那血和脑的主人已被我送下地狱给我
作伴。
If you wish you may tell the police to be careful not to rile me. Of course, I am a 
reasonable spirit. I take no offense at the way they have conducted their 
investigations in the past. In fact, they have been so utterly stupid as to not only 
amuse me, but His Satanic Majesty, Francis Josef, etc. But tell them to beware. Let 
them not try to discover what I am, for it were better that they were never born 
than to incur the wrath of the Axeman. I don‘t think there is any need of such a 
warning, for I feel sure the police will always dodge me, as they have in the past. 
They are wise and know how to keep away from all harm.
如果你希望,你可以告诉警察说小心一点,不要惹恼我。当然,我是个通情达理的恶鬼。我不觉
得他们之前的调查方式冒犯到了我。实际上,他们如此愚蠢的举动不仅让我,也让撒旦大人、
Francis Josef觉得好笑。不过告诫他们注意。不要让他们试图找出我是谁,因为让我斧男发火
会让他们觉得不曾出生更好。我并不认为这种警告有什么必要,因为我确信警方会如他们之前那
样一直躲着我。他们很精明,知道如何避免一切伤害。
Undoubtedly, you Orleanians think of me as a most horrible murderer, which I am, but 
I could be much worse if I wanted to. If I wished, I could pay a visit to your city 
every night. At will I could slay thousands of your best citizens, for I am in close 
relationship with the Angel of Death.
毫无疑问你们奥尔良佬把我想成是一个可怖的杀人犯。我的确是,但只要我想,我能变得更可怕
。我乐意的话我可以每晚都到你们的城市去拜访一下。我可以随意杀害千百个你们的亲爱市民们
,因为我和死亡天使有着很好的交情。
Now, to be exact, at 12:15 (earthly time) on next Tuesday night, I am going to pass 
over New Orleans. In my infinite mercy, I am going to make a little proposition to 
you people. Here it is:
现在,准确地告诉你们,我打算在下个星期二晚上的12:15(人间时)经过新奥尔良。出于我的
伟大仁心,我想要给你们这些人一个小小的提议。这个提议是这样的:
I am very fond of jazz music, and I swear by all the devils in the nether regions 
that every person shall be spared in whose home a jazz band is in full swing at the 
time I have just mentioned. If everyone has a jazz band going, well, then, so much 
the better for you people. One thing is certain and that is that some of your people 
who do not jazz it on Tuesday night (if there be any) will get the axe.
我非常地热爱爵士乐。我以地府所有的魔鬼起誓,每一个在我刚刚提到的时间里头家里有爵士乐队

演奏的人都将得到宽恕。如果所有人都在听着爵士乐队演奏,那么,好,你们所有人都没事。可以

确定的是你们中间那些不肯在星期二晚上听爵士乐的人(如果有这样的人的话)都将得到斧子的洗礼。
Well, as I am cold and crave the warmth of my native Tartarus, and it is about time 
I leave your earthly home, I will cease my discourse. Hoping that thou wilt publish 
this, that it may go well with thee, I have been, am and will be the worst spirit 
that ever existed either in fact or realm of fancy.
嗯,我觉得冷了,渴望回到我的家塔耳塔洛斯去,也差不多是我告别你们现世人家的时候了,
因此我将停止我的演讲。望汝将此印发,因其将行善于汝。我过去是,现在是,将来也将是现实
上或幻想中最坏的一个恶灵。
The Axeman
斧男
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

之前是有七八个人被他给杀掉的

然后那天新奥尔良真的到处都是爵士乐队演奏……那天没有发生谋杀的记录……

后来他突然就不犯案了

所以就成了悬案……

赶脚有一点点像十二宫啊


话说那个Francis Josef是谁啊!!GOOGLE查出来是奥地利的一个皇帝……

要不就是一个教皇……完全对不上啊


似乎大家不知道塔耳塔洛斯是个啥……

给个百科:

塔耳塔罗斯(Τάρταρος, Tartarus)是“地狱”的代名词,从混沌(卡俄斯)中诞生,是地狱冥土的本体。塔耳塔罗斯是人死后灵魂的归所,用冥河与人间世界连通。神话中,主神宙斯囚禁了父亲万神之王克罗诺斯而取得天、地、海和地狱的统治权之后,自己留下天空和万神之主的身份,把大地留给自己的祖母盖亚,把海洋赠给自己的哥哥波塞顿,地狱则被送给自己的大哥哈迪斯(Hades),这样,在神话中的哈迪斯就成为地狱的代名词(事实上他是冥王)。 复仇女神平时居于此,责罚著犯下永恒罪孽的人或神。
