It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 6, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of May people in US were listening to See You Again by Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth. Sicario, directed by Denis Villeneuve, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while Bill O'Reilly's Legends and Lies: The Real West by Bill O'Reilly and David Fisher was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Safe House. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Emily Is Away or Grow Home.
