A Sewing Machine with Stitch Count?

Recently, I thought about how great it’d be if the sewing machines with electronics these days came with a stitch count feature. And maybe ten different counters, at that, while they’re putting in the counting features. A few for different needles, say, and the rest for different garments, as many of us who sew, don’t sew one garment or item all the way through before starting on another.

List of 267 Celebrity Deaths in 2016 by Date, with Bio and Age

2016-celebrity-death-count

Update: 267 now with M*A*S*H* star William Christopher passing away on Dec 31 of cancer at the age of 84.

This is one of the most comprehensive lists found online, within reason of who counts as a celebrity. This list is fairly comprehensive because I had compiled it from a half a dozen fairly comprehensive lists from major sources like NBC, the BBC and so on. My list also has brief bios, death dates (in chronological order) and age at death. There are a few hours left in 2016 where I live but I’m not going to wait till 2017 to post this. I’ll just make any additions needed when I find out, or if you tell me about it.

Sad as this list is to see, you should have enjoyed 2016 for celebrity deaths while you could have. It’ll only get worse due to how many more people we can know these days compared to way back when there was no social media, Internet or even television! See full reasons here. CNN says it wasn’t the worst year by some high threshold of “celebrity”, that was edged out by 2006, but you can judge for yourself. 2016 might not have been worst but it certainly felt that way due to social media… which is exactly what I was talking about. Just on media and the dawning of the Internet, though, I foresaw this in 1995 as noted in this poem.

So who’s going to be the first celebrity to die in 2017?

South Park, Doodle Friends and Other Facebook Tagging Memes

I saw these tagging meme graphics on Facebook, but they weren’t in the best formats for Facebook so I improved them in various ways to share. I did not contribute to the text, though, so if you were offended, please don’t blame me. The first set is a bunch of South Park characters, with appropriately offensive labels in some instances.

The second is Doodle Friends characters, from where I do not know other than that they are part of a Facebook application.

The final one are just some personalities attached to a drawing style I do not know.

Here’s how you can get any of these memes to use:

  • Click on the poster you want below to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends (or let them tag themselves).

Pokemon and Other Japanese Cartoon Facebook Picture Tagging Memes

I did not create these three Facebook picture tagging memes, but I did improve their quality and optimization for Facebook usage. I do not know from where they come so there is no source link. These memes involve Japanese cartoons, but not the anime type that has people in them. These are Pokemon and some other cartoon brand with which I am not familiar.

To use any of these for your Facebook tagging fun:

  • Click on the picture to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends!
