希特勒和占星者 - 古德明
Adolf Hitler is known to frequent astrologers, soothsayers and others of that ilk. According to a story circulated during World War Ⅱ, he asked a certain astrologer, "On what day will I die?"
After peering over his charts, the astrologer announced, "You will die on a Jewish holiday."
Much perturbed, Hitler demanded, "Which one?"
"I do not know," replied the astrologer.
Hitler became very angry, and shouted, "You must know. I insist upon the truth."
"I do not know," persisted the astrologer, "because any day you die will be a Jewish holiday."
*Ilk是「種類」或「家族」，多見於of that ilk一語，常帶貶義，例如：I don't enjoy the company of people of that ilk（我不喜歡跟那樣的人來往）。
