It was Thursday, under the sign of Virgo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Lean Back by Terror Squad.

Collateral, directed by Michael Mann, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2004 while The 9/11 Commission Report by National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching John Safran vs. God. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay or Desert Rats vs. Afrika Korps.
