Friday March 08, 2002

US date format: 3/8/2002, UK date format: 8/3/2002

It was Friday, under the sign of Pisces (see birth chart on March 8, 2002). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of March people in US were listening to Ain't It Funny by Jennifer Lopez. In UK Anything Is Possible / Evergreen by Will Young was in the top 5 hits. Panic Room, directed by David Fincher, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2002 while The Bureau And The Mole by David A. Vise was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Story of a Noble Family. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Demon Front or SpongeBob SquarePants: Revenge of the Flying Dutchman.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2002 or at March 08 across the years.
