Wednesday 18 May 2011

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus (see planets position on May 18, 2011). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of May people in US were listening to Rolling In The Deep by Adele. X-Men: First Class, directed by Matthew Vaughn, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2011 while I'M Over All That by Shirley MacLaine was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Division. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Army Attack or Conduit 2.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
