It was Tuesday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on May 17, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of May people in US were listening to One Dance by Drake Featuring WizKid & Kyla. Me Before You, directed by Thea Sharrock, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while Me Before You by Jojo Moyes was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Wolf Creek. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Lego Worlds or Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade.
