It was Friday, under the sign of Sagittarius (see zodiac on December 14, 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 December people in US were listening to Diamonds by Rihanna. Zero Dark Thirty, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, was one of the most viewed movie released in 2012 while Killing Lincoln by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard was one of the best selling book. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Cypher: Cyberpunk Text Adventure or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
