Friday May 22, 2015

US date format: 5/22/2015, UK date format: 22/5/2015

It was Friday, under the sign of Gemini (see birth chart on May 22, 2015). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of May people in US were listening to See You Again by Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth. Dil Dhadakne Do, directed by Zoya Akhtar, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2015 while The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Safe House. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Grey Goo or Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
