Top 5 Websites:
#1 Bamaonline / Tidefans / Saturdaysdownsouth - Duh football research and news, now that football is over, probably will visit less until august. Lumped into one.
#2 Facebook - Not sure why i go there, been trying to cut back on it.
#3 youtube - watching sports, video game and board game stuff
#4 kickstarter - checking up on past projects i backed, and searching for new ones to back even though i dont need any more stuff.
#5 IMDB- whenever I watch a show or movie I am saying "I know that guy from .. wtf was that movie"

Top 5 searches
#1 Boardgame stuff - Always searching for storage for some games. Rules clarifications. Custom game modes.
#2 Development (work related) - Seems I always get stuck on how to do something, someone on the net has done it before.
#3 Marvel / Comic book searches - a new trailer drops, I research that character even if I am familiar.
#4 Alabama opponent stats - the week of the game Bama played I researched and studied what i could, I want to be prepared for the opponent. I also researched the top 5 to 10 teams.
#5 Random search - Mainly raspberry pi stuff, but people would talk at work about something and research it.
Also home automation. I love the google home lol.

Top 5 actors or actresses that you may cry or have cried over if/when they pass(ed)

1. Michael Keaton (this is what got me thinking about this subject

2. Harold Ramis :(

3. Chevy Chase - I know he's an asshole, but the Vacation movies are one of my early childhood memories and his films and TV appearances have just always been a part of my life. Plus, at least he'll be at peace.

4/5/honorable mention. I'm cheating some, but Pacino/DeNiro/Scorcese. There will be phone calls to the father and brother on those days.

1. Carrie Fisher - My General. Loved that she was so open about her personal struggles and issues, and she fought through it all anyway. Not ashamed one bit to admit I still tear up a bit when I see her in The Last Jedi.

2. Robin Williams - this one stung, he brought so much joy to others while dealing with his own demons. Genie, youíre free.

All Iíve got for now.

1. Carrie Fisher - what norm said. Just the strength to overcome and her brutal honesty about, everything. She was just so damn charming.
2. John Candy - This one really sucked. From SCTV to Dewey Oxberger in Stripes, Great Outdoors, Uncle Buck, Brewsters Millions, PTA, just a wonderful person by all accounts.
3 Jerry Reed - underrated actor and musician. The country boy, southern gentleman you would love to have a beer with anytime. Introduced to him in Smokey and the Bandit and was a lifelong fan ever since. His charisma was never ending and he was a true genuine fella.
Btw, if you see Smokey, its said that that is who Reed really was, how can you not enjoy a guy like that.
4 Burt Reynolds - He really took care of his friends and you can see that throughout his career. never got enough credit for his acting during the Stroker Ace, Cannonball Run years, but if you weren't around before then, I just can't explain to you how f'in huge of a star this guy was, for a long damn time too.
He, like Reed, made huge impressions on me as a young guy and it just stuck with me and really hurt when he died.
5. Robin Williams - Just so tragic to know the decision he made and why. Such a gifted person with immeasurable talent. I can't imagine you would ever have a conversation with him, you would just listen.

Others: Steve Martin falls into the Reed and Reynolds category for me, such a big part of my youth and who I was. I really enjoy all of his work and his music is good too. A genuinely funny and talented entertainer. I think since he's beyond his prime, people really forget, or maybe never knew how big he really was back when.
Carlin and Pryor - They changed the landscape of comedy and were very good for each other, and us.
Gene Wilder - talented man. But his love of Gilda Radner and what her death did to him is just so sad. But, I can only hope to find as much happiness as those two shared.
I know I ran long, but, deal with it ;-)

1) Michael Keaton also with movies like Bettle Juice, Mr. mom, to multiplicity, Vulture,  to the founder, I even liked his batman.
2) Robin Williams, just like everyone said.
3) Chris Pratt - I will probably go before him, but he is the new Michael Keaton to me.
4) Samuel Jackson - Do they speak English in What?
5) Tom Hanks - One of my favorites.

honorable mentions: Chris Farley, John Candy, Bill Murray

Perhaps a bit late, but your top 5 Super Bowls

XIII - Pittsburgh 35- Dallas 31
What a terrific game this was between the two heavyweight teams of the 70's. Staubach fell just short of another comeback, and kiss off Jackie Smith.

XII - Dallas 21 Denver 10
Craig Morton, formerly the QB's Q, headed up Denver's offense. I think it was a sportswriter who penned the gem about him, saying, (not verbatim) "Morton always wanted to help Dallas win a Super Bowl. Today he did."

XXVII - Dallas 52 Buffalo 17
Just a freakin landslide. I remember thinking Dallas was still maybe a year away, but by the time that year rolled around, they had two more rings.

XXV NYG 20 Buffalo 19
Soft spot for Kelly since he was a Houston Gambler in the USFL plus, it was the Giants. Still feel bad for that team.

XLII NYG 17 NE 14
Speaking of the Giants...I still feel dirty rooting for them here, but to have that undefeated season thwarted in such dramatic fashion was absolutely amazing.
