Wednesday July 31, 2013

US date format: 7/31/2013, UK date format: 31/7/2013

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on July 31, 2013). The US president was Barack Obama (Democrat), the UK Prime Minister was David Cameron (Conservative). In that special week of July people in US were listening to Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke. Kick-Ass 2, directed by Jeff Wadlow, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2013 while Fantasy Life by Matthew Berry was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching About Time. If you liked videogames you were probably playing The Bridge or The Last of Us.
But much more happened that day: find out below..

You can also have a look at the whole 2013 or at July 31 across the years.
