It was Tuesday, under the sign of Scorpio (see birth chart on October 27, 2009). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Gordon Brown (Labour), Pope Benedict XVI was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of October people in US were listening to Down by Jay Sean. 2012, directed by Roland Emmerich, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while True Compass by Edward M. Kennedy was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Fear Clinic. If you liked videogames you were probably playing BlazBlue: Continuum Shift or Archibald's Adventures.
