Friday 13 August 2010

It was Friday, 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. Piranha, directed by Alexandre Aja, 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 Beer and Board Games. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Army of Two: The 40th Day or Dance on Broadway.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2010 or at August 13 across the years.
