7K: I know not these names. Well, I know they're not the Go-Gos. ATA

20K: Loved Limitless The TV Series, while it lasted. Know hero took a drug. Forgot he was writer. Was he on series? No hotel though. No twins. Didn't think Shining involved drugs, just a psychotic. 50/50

30K: +1

50K: Not sweat, not saliva. Never heard of it. Prolly leave, but guess would have been bile. Should have been punctum*s* for tears.
