It was Thursday, under the sign of Pisces (see planets position on March 17, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of March people in US were listening to Born This Way by Lady GaGa. There Be Dragons, directed by Roland Joffé, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching My Babysitter's a Vampire. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Anomaly: Warzone Earth or Black Rock Shooter: The Game.
