Wednesday 20 October 2010

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Libra (see planets position on October 20, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Ways to Live Forever, directed by Gustavo Ron, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Fall of Giants by Ken Follett was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Gigantic. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 101 Shark Pets or DJMAX Portable 3.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
