Media on Miyuki

BBCがMiyuki Hatoyamaの紹介記事を挙げたが、淡々としたもの:

==>Profile: Miyuki Hatoyama (2009/09/16) on BBC

こういう英国ジョークはよくわからないので、先々週あたりの記事から...

まずは上品にThe Guardianから:
[Justin McCurry: "Japan's first lady: 'Venus is a beautiful place'" (2009/09/03) on The Guardian]

In a book entitled Very Strange Things I've Encountered, his wife has claimed that she was abducted by aliens as she slept one night 20 years ago, then whisked off to the final frontier. "While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus," she wrote, adding: "It was a very beautiful place, and it was very green."

By happy coincidence, Miyuki is married to a man whom his parliamentary colleagues once nicknamed "the Alien", a comment on his sometimes otherworldly manner and an unkind reference to his prominent eyes.

幸運な偶然の一致により、Miyukiは、同僚議員たちが、異世界なコメントとか、でかい眼とかから、エイリアンというニックネームをつけた男と結婚している。


続いて、「アフォかこいつは」なYAHOO NEWS:
[Weird Science (2009/09/04) on Yahoo News]

"While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus. It was a very beautiful place and it was really green."

Eh, alien abductions are a dime a dozen — but how many people can claim that they knew Tom Cruise in a previous life?

ほへ? エイリアンアブダクションを主張するヤツはわんさかいるが、Tom Cruiseと前世で知り合いとか言い出すヤツは普通いないな。


意地でもscienceなLiveScienceから:
[Robert Roy Britt: "What's Wrong with Miyuki Hatoyama's Alien Abduction Story" (2009/09/03) on Live Science]

"While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus," she wrote in her book last year. "It was a very beautiful place, and it was very green."

Okay, Problem No. 1: The aliens only took you to Venus? How boring! I would think that if they're out there, they'd have more exotic destinations where it'd be harder for NASA to find them.

いいだろう。問題点その1は、エイリアンはキミを金星にだけ連れて行ったのか? なんと退屈な! NASAがもっと見つけにくい、エキゾチックば目的地がいっぱいあるだろうに。

No. 2: Venus isn't green. If you're going to dream up hooey like this, the least you could do is crack open a reference book and get your planet colors right. The surface of Venus is brownish-red and it is a crushing place where humans would fry if they weren't first pulverized by the extreme air pressure.

あなたがこのようにばかな事を考え出すことになるならば、あなたがすることができた最少のものは開いたクラックです。そして、言及は正しくあなたの惑星カラーを予約して、得ます。ビーナスの表面は褐色がかった赤です、そして、それは彼らが最大の気圧によって打ち破られて最初でないならば、人間が日焼けするだろう壊滅的な場所です。

問題点その2は金星はグリーンじゃないこと。こんなアフォを思いつくなら、少なくとも、本を調べて惑星の正しい色を確認しとけばよかった。金星表面は茶色がかった赤色。でもって、高圧の大気に押しつぶされずに済んだら、人間が丸焼きになる場所だ。
...

Hatoyama's whimsical tale sounds about as plausible as other alien abduction accounts, which typically lack corroborating evidence and usually, after close inspection, contain more holes than facts. Meanwhile, let's hope Yukio Hatoyama keeps his feet on the ground and his head out of the clouds when making big decisions.

Hatoyamaの気まぐれな話は、他のエイリアンアブダションと同じくらいにもっともらしい。証言を補強する証拠がなくて、よく調べれば、事実よりもアナだらけ。Yukio Hatoyamaが大きな決断をするときは、ちゃんと地に足をつけることを望みたいね。
