Friday 17 February 2012

It was Friday, under the sign of Aquarius. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of February people in US were listening to Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You) by Kelly Clarkson. Wanderlust, directed by David Wain, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2012 while Coming Apart by Charles Murray was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Descending. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Crusader Kings II or Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
