Wednesday 30 July 2008

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was George W. Bush (Republican). In that special week of July people in US were listening to I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry. Pineapple Express, directed by David Gordon Green, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while Rules Of Deception by Christopher Reich was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Mummy Forensics. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Bionic Commando: Rearmed or Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2008 or at July 30 across the years.
