No one does an end-of-year list quite like Google. The tech giant recently released the annual "Year in Search," giving us an inside look at what our neighbors were looking for on the world's No. 1 search engine in 2015.

It appears that Dallas-Fort Worth was pretty celeb-obsessed in 2015. Ronda Rousey, Bobbi Kristina Brown, and Charlie Sheen were among our top overall search terms, while Lamar Odom took the No. 1 spot. When we weren't snooping for celebrity gossip, we were looking for info on our Texas Rangers, Straight Outta Compton, "Fallout 4," and Sandra Bland. Searches for Hurricane Patricia and the attacks in Paris showed we were concerned with global happenings too.

Google also provided a breakdown of trending terms in three categories: news/events, films, and people. Dallas-Fort Worth aligned pretty well with the rest of the nation, but we were less interested in Jurassic World, Caitlyn Jenner, and — oddly — American Sniper and Chris Kyle than other Americans.
