Default People who survived 2016 - with surprise and/or relief

In the relief but fortunately not much surprise department:
George R R Martin (both the old gods and the new would have laughed at taking him away).

In the relief department, unless you are a rabid anti-royalist and think we don't have enough change and turmoil going on:
Jolly unsporting of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God Queen of this Realm and of Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith, to suffer a "heavy cold" and miss multiple public appearances in the last couple of weeks of 2016. But she made it through.

In the we've-given-up-being-surprised department, Keith Richards. Iggy Pop. Charlie Sheen. Hmm, lessons for long life there?

Who else?

Is it possible that George R. R. Martin survived 2016 because he was its author? I'm just spitballing here. He's been referred to as "Fiction's Most Prolific Serial Killer" for a reason, after all.

The Queen is barely past her infancy in shape-shifting reptilian years.

In the future year of 2017, the people will look back upon those who fell in the previous year - and affirm that they were the lucky ones.

I have a theory that there is this amazing new treatment out there in a "Death Becomes Her"-style that celebrities jump on, but the catch is you have to be "dead" to benefit from it. This leads me to believe that a)the survivors of 2016 just haven't heard about it yet or b)are not in the cool enough club + that c)the rate of famous deaths will continue indefinitely.

Somehow, seemingly impossibly, Andy Dick is still walking around.

So if you (Ymir's blood) are still alive, does that make you unlucky?
