Tuesday August 13, 2013

US date format: 8/13/2013, UK date format: 13/8/2013

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 13, 2013). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke. Prisoners, directed by Denis Villeneuve, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2013 while The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling) was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cloudberry Kingdom or Iron Man 3.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2013 or at August 13 across the years.
