Thursday 18 August 2011

It was Thursday, under the sign of Leo (see planets position on August 18, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO. Courageous, directed by Alex Kendrick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while Seal Team Six by Howard E. Wasdin and Stephen Templin was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Black Dynamite. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Arcania: Fall of Setarrif or The Cursed Crusade.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
