Well, tbh. I will start the article with a list of people we have lost in 2021. I know not everyone is in there, and certainly not all those who deserve to be remembered. But i tried to pick those who stood out to me for some reason. No offense or disrespect meant at anyone I didn't list there!

Other than that, only lists or mentions of 2021 statistics, factoids and top 10 lists!

Why did I do this article? Because I have 2 phases every year before new year. One is the looking back one. The other is the looking ahead one.

ONE TOP LIST FOR 2021 and for the future is the list of AWESOMEST SPONSORS! Please have a look at their content and give them some love!!!!

Looking back at 2021? Really?

Well, looking back at 2021 make most of us want to turn right back around and never look back at it again.

2021 was not just Covid!! (You'd not know it by the media today but still)

So I won’t be looking at those things though. I’ll be looking at the year from a top 10 or top something 2021 perspective.

Why?

Because the end of the year is coming, the time for the top 10 lists has arrived like every year.

This year I wanted to be early in the game and, unlike most articles, I wanted to make a collection of some of the most interesting 2021 lists and put them all together into one article.

I collected this information so you don't have to!

So I’ve travelled all over the internet for you guys and girls and I have made a selection, formatted it a bit so it’s nice and readable for you and you will find it below the minus equals minus equals line below.

The rest of the year for @Anonsunamun

This is probably my 2nd to last article of the year.

This is the looking back part of the annual new year mood swing I have, and the last article will be the looking ahead one.

That one will be more personal, so if you don’t give…… about my 2022 plans, hopes and dreams, then you might as well skip it. LOL!

So without further adoodoododooooo……..

Here is 2021!
