US date format: 2/12/2008, UK date format: 12/2/2008

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 12, 2008). The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of February people in US were listening to Low by Flo Rida. In UK Now You're Gone by Basshunter featuring DJ Mental Theo's Bazzheadz was in the top 5 hits. Taken, directed by Pierre Morel, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while World Without End by Ken Follett was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Monster House. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Block Breaker Deluxe or Atlantica Online.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
