US date format: 8/28/2000, UK date format: 28/8/2000

It was Monday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on August 28, 2000). The US president was Bill Clinton (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair (Labour), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Doesn't Really Matter by Janet. In UK Music by Madonna was in the top 5 hits. Memento, directed by Christopher Nolan, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2000 while For The Love Of Money by Omar Tyree was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Down to Earth. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Dexter's Laboratory: Robot Rampage or Alien: Resurrection.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
