Take me back to March 30, 2005

Let's go back to the 2000s.

It is Wednesday, March 30, 2005. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Aries. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

Spring has arrived, and the days are starting to get longer. In America, the song "Candy Shop" by 50 Cent is at the top of the singles charts, while "(Is This The Way To) Amarillo" by Tony Christie & Peter Kay is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Guess Who 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. 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.

The trial of pop star Michael Jackson for child molestation is attracting international media attention. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Pope John Paul II, Luther Vandross, Lloyd Avery II, and Tara Correa-McMullen would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "The Royle Family", "The King of Queens", "Two and a Half Men", and "Battlestar Galactica".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Football Manager 2005", "Halo 2", "The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap", and "Tekken 5". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Drake & Josh", "LazyTown", "Unfabulous", and "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody". Popular toys at the moment include RoboSapien (toy robot), Baby Annabell, the Nintendo DS, and 20Q.
