Tuesday 24 August 2010

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Virgo (see planets position on August 24, 2010). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Love The Way You Lie by Eminem. Black Swan, directed by Darren Aronofsky, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2010 while Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Sidekick. If you liked videogames you were probably playing ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead or Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Vietnam.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
