Take me back to September 4, 2005

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Sunday, September 4, 2005. Anyone born today will have the star sign Virgo. People are currently enjoying their weekend. However, because it's a Sunday, some are dreading the days ahead.

Schools and colleges are starting again, and fall has officially arrived. As a result, temperatures are beginning to cool, and trees are starting to shed their leaves. In the United States, it is Labor Day weekend. People are attending barbecues and other gatherings. To many Americans, Labor Day represents the end of summer 2005. In America, the song "We Belong Together" by Mariah Carey is at the top of the singles charts, while "I'll Be OK" by McFly is the number-one song in the UK.

George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Transporter 2 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. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Tara Correa-McMullen, Rosa Parks, Eddie Guerrero, and Pat Morita would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "MythBusters", "NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service", "The Apprentice", and "Prison Break".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "FIFA Football 2005", "RollerCoaster Tycoon 3", "World of Warcraft", and "Lego Star Wars: The Video Game". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "7th Heaven", "Ed, Edd n Eddy", "Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids", and "Maya & Miguel". Popular toys at the moment include Betty Spaghetty (doll), Micropets, the Nintendo DS, and the PSP.
