Thursday 17 February 2011

It was Thursday, under the sign of Aquarius. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of February people in US were listening to Black And Yellow by Wiz Khalifa. Just Go with It, directed by Dennis Dugan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching How I Made My Millions. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Baconing or Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
