It was Thursday, under the sign of Leo. 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. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, directed by Edgar Wright, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Beer and Board Games. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Akai Katana or Pac-Man Championship Edition.
