Friday 28 August 2009

It was Friday, under the sign of Virgo. The US president was Barack Obama (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas. Fantomas, directed by Louis Feuillade, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2009 while In Fed We Trust by David Wessel was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching MacKenzie Falls. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders or AI War: Fleet Command.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
