The only ones that made any sort of impact on me were the personal ones members posted this year. Celebrity death's amuse me mildly as people get all upset about someone they never knew and who sure as fcuk never even knew they existed...

2016 has been a great year for the reality check that none of us will survive this

Having a ball reading the outpourings of grief over so called "STARS"

The only death this year I had cause to doff my hat over was quietly buried by the press and that was the passing of Vesna Vulovic last week.

A normal person who survived extraordinary circumstances not once but a load of times most famously for freefalling from a DC-9 at 33,000ft and surviving all because her supervisor got her shifts mixed up.
