Friday 10 October 2008

It was Friday, under the sign of Libra. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Whatever You Like by T.I.. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, directed by Mark Herman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Anathem by Neal Stephenson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Review with Myles Barlow. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Coffeetime Crosswords or Call of Duty: World at War – Final Fronts.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2008 or at October 10 across the years.
