It was Monday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 2, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Love The Way You Lie by Eminem. Boy Wonder, directed by Michael Morrissey, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while The Obama Diaries by Laura Ingraham was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Grandma's House. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dinner Date or Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland.
