Tuesday 12 October 2010

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Libra (see planets position on October 12, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Main Street, directed by John Doyle, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gigantic. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 100 Rogues or Dead to Rights: Retribution.
