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 San Antonio was pretty celeb-obsessed in 2015. Ronda Rousey, Bobbi Christina Brown, and Donald Trump were among our top 10 search terms, while Lamar Odom claimed the No. 1 spot. We were also interested in learning more about Sandra Bland and El Chapo. When we weren't snooping for info on newsworthy people, we were looking for info on Straight Outta Compton, Jurassic World, and American Sniper. The only non-human, non-movie search term in San Antonio's top 10 was the Special Olympics World Games.

Google also provided a breakdown of trending terms in three categories: news/events, people, and films. San Antonio aligned pretty well with the rest of the nation, but we were less interested in "Fallout 4," Brian Williams, and Mad Max than other Americans. Top San Antonio-specific search terms of 2015 included LaMarcus Aldridge, Joan Sebastian, and ... Duke Kahanamoku, the inventor of surfing?
