I didn't set the criteria. I was alerted to the criteria a few years back by a shadowy figure at a pre-dawn TH in the Sawatch.

I'm at 0.62/day and 1.81% of my posts pertain to the beer thread so it's all good...

This is the only Scorpio I know of (circa '71).

Ever notice how those midday soap operas are always sponsored by Hostess and Paxil? Coincidence?

It's Who ;) I wasn't going to respond, as watching GH was a guilty pleasure of mine back in the 80/90's. Maybe since Port Charles was based on Buffalo. But then I found sports and recovered.

If I had to guess who the power couple is, I would have to go with Papillon and Wooderson. But if Bill means the couple creating the most drama... ?

The most viewed wedding on TV until Charles and Diana... and somewhat more believable.

Is that like Luke and Leia? I know that one. Hint: when you know they're siblings it kinda turns the romance in Episode 4 a little weird.
