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 Assholes Finish First by Tucker Max was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Hard Drive 13. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Pac-Man Party or Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.
