It was Wednesday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 20, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of April people in US were listening to Work by Rihanna Featuring Drake. Neighbors, directed by Nicholas Stoller, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while The Rainbow Comes and Goes by Anderson Cooper, Gloria Vanderbilt was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Containment. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Space Hulk: Deathwing or Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade.
