Hi, puzzlers!

Today is the first Sunday of the month which means it's Potluck Puzzle Sunday! Anyone who wants to bring a puzzle, post it in the comments and I'll add it to the puzzle. Juliecrostics, one-offs, whatever you like, bring it to the table!

To get us started, jump over the scoop of potluck potato salad:

Last week, I posted some Lost in Translation puzzles to the Sunday Puzzle Placeholder diary. A Lost in Translation puzzle is where you take the name of a movie, use Babelfish to translate it into another language and then translate it back to English. Two of them were solved, but there are three more. All of these are in theaters now, and I translated them into German and back again.

1: Wild (solved! Savages)
2: Intensification of the revolution (solved! Step Up Revolution)
3: You was invented have
4: The appearance
5: As Touched by Thunder

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
