这是一个疯狂的真实的寻宝故事

The Crazy Story Of A Real Life Treasure Hunt

寻宝游戏令人着迷
There’re something about treasure hunts.
寻宝游戏要用尽想象力
They capture every imagination.
也许是由于我们对探险的热爱
Maybe it’s our love for adventure,
抑或是对解谜的热衷
or our love for solving puzzles,
又或者是因为知道宝物在某地埋藏着
or maybe it’s just the anxiety of knowing that
等着我们去发现的那种紧张感
something is out there, waiting to be found.
在上个世纪七十年代中期的英格兰
In the mid-1970s in England,
汤姆·玛石勒 著名的出版商
the renowned publisher, Tom Mashlor,
找到了声名不显的插画家基特·威廉姆斯
approached a little known painter by the name of Kit Williams.
想要出版一本儿童插画书
The idea of making a children’s picture book.
玛石勒想要让这本书与众不同
Mashlor wanted something that no one had ever done before,
但威廉姆斯很抵触这个主意
but Williams was resisted to the idea.
他不想画上一堆
He didn’t want to work on a dozen or more paintings
读者们只会随意略过的插画
only to have people flip through them casually.
那他要怎么让读者们注意到这些画呢?
How could he get readers to give his pictures the attention they deserve?
威廉姆斯想到了做一本解谜的书 而且没有告诉玛石勒这件事
Without telling Mashlor, Williams came up with the idea of a puzzle book,
这本书包含16张原创插画
containing 16 original paintings
这些画中藏有一个18k黄金兔子的埋藏地线索
that hit clues to the location of an 18 carat gold rabbit
这个黄金兔子由他亲自打造并掩埋在英格兰某处
that he constructed himself and buried somewhere in England.
如今兔子已经埋好 就等着你来发现
Now it has been buried. It’s up to you to find it.
这本书名叫《化装舞会》 出版于1979年
The book was called MASQUERADE. It was published in 1979.
这本书一出版就热卖
And it was a mass of heat.
非常疯狂
It went mad, completely crazy.
我们以为库存的书足够卖到圣诞节
We thought we bound to have enough till Christmas.
然而我们在出版第二天就再印刷了一万六千多本
And we reprint it, a third of fifty thousand, the day after publication,
三天后 又印刷了五万本
and three days later, yet another fifty thousand.
我从未见过这么畅销的书
I’ve really never seen a book like it.
上千 上万 成千上万的人
Thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people
都在讨论如何解开《化装舞会》里的谜
said about solving the puzzle of MASQUERADE.
一年过去了 又一年过去了 还是没有人能解开这个谜
A year went by, then two, and still nobody had cracked it.
但威廉姆斯每天都收到大量来信
But Williams was receiving huge numbers of letters everyday,
他必须得通读或者至少快速扫一眼
which he was forced to read or at least scan through
这样才能确定是否有人解开了谜题
so he can confirm whether anyone had solved it.
这个包裹里 全都是今天从美国寄过来的信
This package has got today’s American letters in it.
我是说 每天都这么多
I mean, this is… this has been going long like,
每天都有这么多信
so long every single day.
在1982年三月 离威廉姆斯埋下黄金兔子已经过去了两年半
Then in March, 1982, a little over two and a half years after Williams buried the hare.
他收到了一个叫做肯·汤姆斯寄来的信
He received a letter from a man named Ken Thomas.
这信里没有怎么写
A letter didn’t have any insight
他是如何解开《化装舞会》的谜题的
into how the puzzle system work in MASQUERADE,
但信里有一张粗略的地图
but there was a crude map that pointed to the exact place
指出了宝藏埋在哪
where the treasure was hidden.
威廉姆斯在这一刻如释重负
Williams relieved at this point,
告诉了肯 他是对的 并让他去挖出来拿到它
told him that he was right and said go to get out.
《化装舞会》的谜题非常独特
The puzzle of MASQUERADE is completely unique.
威廉姆斯自己发明的
Williams invented it himself,
所以理论上来说 任何年龄层的任何人都有可能解开
so that theoretically, anyone of any age could figure it out.
以下就是谜底
Here’s how it works.
每一页 都画有一张有趣的图
Every page features an intriguingly designed picture,
图片四周有一圈字
surrounded by a border with a phrase.
技巧就是辨认出图片里的每一个生物
The trick was to identify every living creature in the frame
画出一条线 从生物的左眼到左手
and trace a line, from its left eye through its left hand,
右眼到右手
its right eye through its right hand,
左眼到左脚 右眼到右脚
its left eye through its left foot and its right eye through its right foot.
这些线延伸就会连到图片边界上的某个字母
These lines would point a letter in the border that
这些字母就有序地组成了单词
could be unjumbled into a word.
比如这个图片 “埋藏”
In this case, BURIED.
如果你在其他15张图中都套用这个模式
If you follow this pattern for all 15 pages,
你就会得到一大堆短语 像这样
you’d end up with a mass of phrase that goes like this.
凯特琳的长手指留下的阴影土壤埋藏着黄色护身符
Catherine’s Long finger Over Shadows Earth Buried Yellow Amulet –
中午指向时刻
Midday Points The Hour
昼夜平分点的光-看你
In Light of equinox – Look you
要理解这个是什么意思 你就要把每一页
To figure out what this means, you have to take the first letter
单词的首字母连接起来
from each page’s word or words and string them together.
这么做之后 你就得到了“接近安特希尔”
If you do that, you get CLOSE BY AMPTHILL
就是这个了 “安特希尔”指的是安特希尔镇
and that’s it, AMPTHILL refers to the town of Ampthill,
在伦敦北面 车程大概有一小时
about an hour north of the London.
凯特琳的长手指 指的是纪念阿拉贡的凯瑟琳的十字架
In Catherine’s long finger refers to the tall cross
就是亨利八世的第一任妻子
that commemorates Catherine of Aragon, first wife of King Henry VIII,
十字架在安特希尔公园内
located in Ampthill Park.
在春分和秋分的正午时刻 太阳照到十字架
At noon on the equinox, the sun projects a shadow of that cross
投射的阴影落在草丛中的某个点上
onto a specific spot in the grass.
那个点就是威廉姆斯藏起黄金兔子的地方
That’s where Williams hid the golden hare.
你真的很幸运 不是吗?
You were lucky really, weren’t you?
非常幸运 我的狗才是发现的那个
Very lucky. My dog was the one.
如果没有我的狗 我不觉得我会找到
Without my dog I don’t think I would’ve bothered.
如果我没有停下来让他看看
If I didn’t stop to let him have a look,
你知道的 就出来遛狗 撒个尿
you know, have a run, and have a wee,
我永远都发现不了
I would have never found it.
基特·威廉姆斯的《化装舞会》黄金兔子就是这么被发现的
And that’s how Kit Williams’ MASQUERADE golden hare was finally found.
只是 还有一个问题
Except, there’s a problem.
根本就没有肯·汤姆斯
There is no Ken Thomas.
在这场全国范围搜寻结束的六年后
You see, six years after the nationwide search was over.
英国的星期日时报 在安特希尔当地报社的帮助下
The Sunday Times in Britain, with the help of a local paper in Ampthill
发现肯·汤姆斯其实是杜高·汤普森的化名
discovered that Ken Thomas was actually a pseudonym for Dugald Thompson,
他跟一个叫约翰·格尔德的人是生意伙伴
who was the business partner of a man named John Guard,
《化装舞会》正当热时 约翰与基特·威廉姆斯的前女友维罗妮卡·罗伯特森住在一起
with the time of MASQUERADE was living with Kit Williams’ ex-girl friend, Veronica Robertson.
罗伯特森曾经与威廉姆斯去过安特希尔公园几次
Robertson had been to Ampthill Park with Williams on a couple of occasions,
猜测他可能把宝物藏在那里
and guess that you might have hid the price there.
格尔德和汤姆森用金属探测器检测了整个区域 并挖开土地
Guard and Thompson, metal detected the whole area, dug holes,
然而他们什么都没找到
but they couldn’t find it.
当他们看到两个真正解开谜题的物理老师
It was only after they saw where two physics teachers
正在挖洞时
who would actually solve the puzzle had been digging,
他们才得以夺走了那只兔子
they were able to snatch the hare for themselves.
当大家发现这件缺德事时
By the time everyone found out about this scandal,
汤普森已经利用黄金兔子创办了一家电子游戏公司 叫兔软
Thompson had already use the hare to start a video game company, called Haresoft.
公司的头号游戏叫养兔人
Its flagship title, Hareraiser, was a puzzle game that
是个承诺赢家能得到真金兔子的解谜游戏
promise the real golden hare to the winner.
这个游戏非常难解
The game was pretty much incomprehensible.
在一段养兔人游戏的搞笑视频里
In a hilarious video on Hareraiser,
喜剧演员斯图尔特·阿申讲述了为什么这个游戏是无解的 视频放在下面的链接了
comedian Stuart Ashen details why it’s probably unsolvable, I leave it in the link blow.
但是 当1988年《化装舞会》这件事被揭露之后
Nevertheless, by the time that the exposé on MASQUERADE came out in 1988,
这家公司破产了
the company had gone bankrupt.
那个黄金兔子在苏富比拍卖会上被卖出了32000英镑
and the golden hare was sold by Sotheby’s at auction for £32,000.
没人知道谁买了
No one knows who bought it.
尽管BBC在2009年 黄金兔子回到原主人手里后
Though the BBC did track it down for a documentary on Williams in 2009,
追踪制作了关于威廉姆斯的纪录片 但这只黄金兔子又一次消失无踪
after which it went back to its owner, still live in secrecy, once again.
再次看到它挺开心的我以为我再也见不到它了
It was nice to see it again.I thought I would’ve never ever see that again.
《化装舞会》开创了一种新的在家寻宝游戏
MASQUERADE launched a new genre of arm chair treasure hunts,
比如福雷斯特·芬恩的百万美元古董宝箱
like Forrest Fenn’s million dollar chest of antiques
藏在洛基山的某处 至今仍未被发现
hiding somewhere in the Rockey Mountains still unsolved.
我们对藏宝的热爱从相关书本的畅销中就能看出来
And our love for hidden treasure is clear in the popularity of books,
比如《达芬奇密码》或者精灵宝可梦Go游戏
like the Da Vinci Code or games like Pokemon Go,
又或者是《密室逃脱》这一风靡全球的游戏
or in Escape Rooms which has flourished across the world.
解谜并寻宝实在是太有趣了
It’s just fun to solve a puzzle and go searching for treasure.
我一定要偷到《独立宣言》
I must steal the Declaration of Independence.
别偷《独立宣言》
Don’t steal the Declaration of Independence.
我经常被问到一个问题
One of the question that I get asked all the time
我是用什么程序来把这些视频剪辑到一起的
is what kind of program do I use to put these videos together.
我用的是Nerdwritter上破解版的Final Cut Pro X
I use Final Cut Pro X tattered in the Nerdwriter.
当X版本发行时 确实有点难用
And there was actually a little bit of hobble when X came out.
因为苹果公司完全重新设计了这个程序
Because Apple completely redesign the program
与之前的Final Cut Pro7版本完全不同
from the previous version, Final Cut Pro7,
我用了超过10年的剪辑工具就这么被毁了 超逊
the editing tool that I had used for over 10 years was gone and it sucked,
我看了一大堆油管教学视频 最终学会了怎么用Final Cut ProX
Eventually I learned how to use Final Cut Pro X by watching a bunch of Youtube videos,
但我真的希望我之前就有像SKILLSHARE这样的网站 也是我今天的金主
but I really wish I had was something like today’s sponsor, SKILLSHARE,
SKILLSHARE是一个为创作者提供的线上学习社区
