US date format: 8/30/2013, UK date format: 30/8/2013

It was Friday, under the sign of Virgo (see birth chart on August 30, 2013). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke. Enemy, directed by Denis Villeneuve, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2013 while First Sight by Danielle Steel was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Swathi Chinukulu. If you liked videogames you were probably playing BioShock Infinite or Dungeon Travelers 2.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2013 or at August 30 across the years.
