George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Daredevil is at the top of the box office. Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "The Royle Family", "The Office (UK version).", and "CSI: Miami".

In technology news, more and more people are beginning to gain access to the Internet. Internet speeds are increasing and MP3 sharing is beginning to threaten the existence of music stores. People are using a software program called LimeWire to share music, software, and videos. Unfortunately, it is also a haven for computer viruses. Smartphones don't exist yet. There are no Androids or iPhones.

Cameras on phones are quickly becoming the norm. However, the photographs that they take are still lacking in quality. It's 2003, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of 50 Cent, R. Kelly, Sean Paul, 3 Doors Down, Nelly, Evanescence, Chingy and Beyonce. An American restaurant owner has recently attracted media attention by renaming "French Fries" as "Freedom Fries". This was in response to France's opposition to the invasion of Iraq.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Camoflauge, Barry White, Bob Hope, and Charles Bronson would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "RuneScape", "Battlefield 1942", "Unreal Tournament 2003", and "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Bear in the Big Blue House", "That '70s Show", "Rocket Power", and "My Wife and Kids".

Children are playing with toys such as the PlayStation 2, Pixter drawing tablet, FurReal Friends, and Cranium Cadoo.
