US date format: 10/26/1993, UK date format: 26/10/1993

It was Tuesday, under the sign of Scorpio (see birth chart on October 26, 1993). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Sir John Major (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of October people in US were listening to Dreamlover by Mariah Carey. In UK I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) by Meat Loaf was in the top 5 hits. Cannibal! The Musical, directed by Trey Parker, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1993 while Sacred Clowns by Tony Hillerman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching La petite vie. If you liked videogames you were probably playing 3rd Super Robot Wars or Star Wars: Rebel Assault.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
