All of my Facebook friends belong on one Friend List or another. These lists, numbered from 1 to 5, with a descriptive after the number, identifies how much access each person on it has to my Facebook content. That’s because with every post, I set the privacy setting to one or more of these targeted audiences. It’s just a little “think twice” check before I post, but it sure is effective!
List of 267 Celebrity Deaths in 2016 by Date, with Bio and Age
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?
Celebrity Deaths Will Only Get Worse in 2017 (2016 List of 260)
The final list is now in the post through this link.
So enjoy 2016 while you can, I say! Seriously! Not being facetious or anything!
List of Animal Group Names (Collective Nouns)
What are groups of various kinds of animals called? There are a lot of answers, sometimes for the same animal! I’ve tracked down the animals on this list for my need to know and am sharing in case anybody out there also wants to know. There are some good lists out there but I needed this formatted this way for my needs. I hope it is useful, or at least interesting, to you as well. 🙂
How I Will Examine my 23andMe Genotyping Results, and How I Will Share Them
From my experience with 23andMe’s genotyping service, when results were ready, I got 254 reports all at once, and they didn’t even include much of the ancestry reports! The reports are listed at the end, and were in groupings of:
- Health risks (120)
- Drug response (24)
- Inherited conditions (50)
- Traits (60)
- 3 special reports needing individual approval among above groupings
- 3 health tools to assess some features about you
