US date format: 8/5/1990, UK date format: 5/8/1990

It was Sunday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 5, 1990). The US president was George H. W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Famous people born on this day include Yui Minami and James White. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Vision Of Love by Mariah Carey. In UK Turtle Power by Partners In Kryme was in the top 5 hits. Flatliners, directed by Joel Schumacher, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1990 while You Just Don'T Understand by Deborah Tannen was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Swamp Thing. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Aerial Assault or Darwin's Dilemma.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
