作者: NYTALK管理者 点击:374 难度:高级
    Britney Spears' songs “Oops! I Did It Again” and “Baby One More Time” are used to scare away Somali pirates who might otherwise be tempted to attack merchant navy ships off Africa's east coast, according to officer Rachel Owens.
 
  据一名船长理查 欧文斯说,布兰妮 斯皮尔斯的歌曲《Oops! I Did It Again》和《Baby One More Time》被用来吓退试图攻击非洲东海岸商船队的索马里海盗。
  
  “These guys can't stand Western culture or music, making Britney's hits perfect,” Owens said
  
  这些海盗无法忍受西方文化或音乐,放布兰妮的歌曲非常适合。欧文斯说。
  
  The music is blasted at extremely high volumes, with the speakers aimed directly at the pirates so the ship's crew doesn't have to deal with the ear-splitting tunes,according to the Mirror.
  
  据Mirror报道,他们通过扬声器直接向海盗播放高音量的歌曲,这样船员们就不用被震耳欲聋的音乐声困扰。
  
  Owens said Spears' classics are an effective way of fighting pirates. But Steven Jones, of the Security Association for the Maritime Industry, said there are some lengths Western powers are unwilling to go to for fear of violating international law.
  
  欧文斯说斯皮尔斯的歌曲是对抗海盗最有效的方法,但是海运业安全协会官员的斯蒂文 琼斯说,有些西方列强不愿意这样做,因为怕违反国际法律。
  
  “I'd imagine using Justin Bieber would be against the Geneva Convention,” Jones jokingly said
  
  想像一下,也许哪天放贾斯汀比伯的音乐可能会违反日内瓦公约。琼斯开玩笑说。
