Take me back to February 25, 2005

Let's go back to the 2000s.

The date is February 25, 2005, and it's a Friday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Pisces. Many people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

In America, the song "Let Me Love You" by Mario is at the top of the singles charts, while "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" by U2 is the number-one song in the UK. George W.

On television, people are watching popular shows such as "ER", "Smallville", "Lost", and "Desperate Housewives". 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. Internet users are using MSN Messenger and AIM to chat with each other online. Cameras on phones have now become the norm. Furthermore, the quality of these cameras is continuing to increase with each new phone release. We are now entering an age where any event can be instantly photographed or recorded.

Practically every teenager and adult has a MySpace or Bebo account. It's 2005, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani, Mario, Kelly Clarkson, 50 Cent, Kanye West and Ciara. Satirical factoids about actor Chuck Norris are extremely popular at the moment. These "Chuck Norris Facts" consist of absurd hyperbolic claims about Norris' toughness.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Johnnie Cochran, Pope John Paul II, Luther Vandross, and Lloyd Avery II would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Football Manager 2005", "Need for Speed: Underground 2", "Half-Life 2", and "World of Warcraft". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "The Powerpuff Girls", "My Life as a Teenage Robot", "One Tree Hill", and "Avatar: The Last Airbender".

Children are playing with toys such as the PlayStation 2, the Xbox, Micropets, and Bionicle LEGO.
