Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Or, just read tonight's comments and you'll pick up the idea quickly. New folks are always welcome, so don't be shy about posting!]

After last week, when the gremlins went wild, I was a little worried. But they appear to have been well-behaved this week. Just the usual mischief -- grouping the clues in groups of 3 regardless of how many answers there actually are in each row, removing the capitalization, possibly fiddling a little with punctuation or word spacing. Barely noticeable! Let's enjoy the respite while it lasts.

And here are science's Bad Translations of famous movie quotes. We solved a few of these last week, but still plenty more to ponder upon.

1.  'Robinson, Problem Solving and research networks?'

pucklady says this is "Mrs. Robinson, are you trying to seduce me?" from The Graduate

2.. 'The general trends. Hamster mom and dad berries.' (1975)
3.  ‘This is not true. The answer to this question.' (1988)
4.   'I think it's your partner in my jungle.' (1996)
5.   'I'm pretty smart, huh? I love this man.' (1981)
6.   'Access to credit, life and death.' (1994)
7.  'But look, my son was with him.' (1942)

Thanks to a hint from science, I say this is "Here's looking at you, kid" from Casablanca.

8.  'Perhaps power.' (1977)

UnionMade says this is "May the Force be with you" from Star Wars.

9.  'Now can not be denied.' (1972)

UnionMade says this is "He made him an offer he couldn't refuse", from The Godfather

10.  'Love is no excuse.'

I say this is "Love means never having to say you're sorry" from Love Story

11. 'You're a man, I am a man, man.' (1998)

UnionMade thinks this might be from Shakespeare in Love, and offers a couple of good possibilities for the original line...

UPDATE: ... but science says this is not the answer, so we need to keep looking.

12.  'I want to quit smoking.' (2005)

UnionMade thinks this is "I wish I knew how to quit you."  from Brokeback Mountain.

13.  'Why is this important?' (2008)
14.  'Dare. Less than style.' (1995)
15.  'The fact is that human desires, but more than words, is good.' (1987)
16.  'Way? If you do not have access.' (1985)
17.  'I was very angry, am what?' (1976)

UnionMade suggests this is "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it any more!" from Network.

18.  'We are a lack of communication.' (1967)

I say this is "What we have here is a failure to communicate", from Cool Hand Luke.

19.  'Hello, good morning.' (1968)
20.  'Corps to open the door.' (1968)
