Saturday 24 October 2009

It was Saturday, under the sign of Scorpio (see planets position on October 24, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of October people in US were listening to 3 by Britney Spears. Everybody's Fine, directed by Kirk Jones, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while The Help by Kathryn Stockett was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fear Clinic. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Ben 10 Alien Force: Vilgax Attacks or All Star Cheer Squad 2.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2009 or at October 24 across the years.
