Thursday September 13, 2012

US date format: 9/13/2012, UK date format: 13/9/2012

It was Thursday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on September 13, 2012). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of September people in US were listening to Whistle by Flo Rida. House at the End of the Street, directed by Mark Tonderai, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Bones Are Forever by Kathy Reichs was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Inbetweeners. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Double Fine Happy Action Theater or Dear Esther.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2012 or at September 13 across the years.
