Tuesday 16 September 2008

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Virgo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of September people in US were listening to Whatever You Like by T.I.. Zack and Miri Make a Porno, directed by Kevin Smith, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Are You There by Chelsea Handler was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Body in Numbers. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Championship Pony or Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Soulstorm.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
