It was Thursday, under the sign of Libra (see birth chart on October 20, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat). In that special week of October people in US were listening to Closer by The Chainsmokers Featuring Halsey. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, directed by Edward Zwick, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while The Hammer of Thor: Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Dead Silent. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 or Warhammer 40,000: Eternal Crusade.
