It was Thursday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 14, 2014). 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 Rude by MAGIC!. The Imitation Game, directed by Morten Tyldum, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2014 while Act Of War by Brad Thor was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Blockbustaz. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Always Sometimes Monsters or Escape Dead Island.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
