It was Tuesday, under the sign of Libra. 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. Ip Man, directed by Wilson Yip, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Hard Drive 13. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc or Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time.
