In UK Crazy by Gnarls Barkley was in the top 5 hits. X-Men: The Last Stand, directed by Brett Ratner, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2006 while Don'T Make A Black Woman Take Off Her Earrings by Tyler Perry was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Ask a Bag Pirate: The Series. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Birth of America or The Conveni 200X.

Facts:
  • 2006 Iranian sumptuary law controversy:
  • The Canadian ''National Post'' reports that certain ampquotIranian expatriates living in Canadaampquot are claiming that the Iranian parliament has passed a law that would require the country's non-Muslim religious minorities to wear distinctive markings: yellow ribbons for Jews, red for Christians and blue for Zoroastrians. After great controversy, the ''National Post'' retracts its original report. (Jerusalem Post)
  • The United States Senate votes on an amendment to an immigration reform bill which would ''ampquot... declare English as the national language of the United Statesampquot'', giving English an increased ''de jure'' capacity (in addition to a ''de facto'' one) as the official language within the country. The bill, S. 2611, has yet to be voted on in the Senate. (U.S. Senate)
  • A riot takes place at the United States prison camp at Guantánamo Bay in Cuba after several inmates attempted suicide. (Toronto Star)
  • The case of Khaled el-Masri, who says he was abducted and tortured by the CIA because he was mistaken for another person, is dismissed by a district court in Alexandria, Virginia, as it would be a ampquotgrave riskampquot of damage to U.S. national security by exposing government secrets. The court rules that if the claims are true he ampquotdeserves a remedyampquot but this cannot be found in the court. (Washington Post)
