Take me back to June 24th, 2003!

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

The date is June 24th, 2003, and it's a Tuesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Cancer. It's summer, so the temperatures are warmer and the evenings are longer than usual.

In America, the song This Is The Night by Clay Aiken is at the top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Bring Me To Life by Evanescence is the number-one hit song. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Hulk is at the top of the box office.

Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. 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.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Barry White, Bob Hope, Charles Bronson, and John Ritter would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Last of the Summer Wine", "The Royle Family", "The Office (UK version).", and "The Shield". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "RuneScape", "Unreal Tournament 2003", "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", and "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past".

Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Johnny Bravo", "CatDog", "The Powerpuff Girls", and "My Wife and Kids". Popular toys at the moment include the Game Boy Advance, Spider-Man Dual Action Web Blaster, FurReal Friends, and LEGO Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets.
