US date format: 3/24/2016, UK date format: 24/3/2016

It was Thursday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on March 24, 2016). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of March people in US were listening to Work by Rihanna Featuring Drake. Show Yourself, directed by Billy Ray Brewton, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2016 while The Liar by Nora Roberts was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Foursome. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Battlefleet Gothic: Armada or Total War: Warhammer.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
