Take me back to November 9, 2006

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is November 9, 2006, and it's a Thursday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Scorpio. It's November, so the evenings are getting darker and the days are getting colder.

In America, the song "My Love" by Justin Timberlake is at the top of the singles charts, while "Put Your Hands Up For Detroit" by Fedde Le Grand is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Saw III 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 "Gilmore Girls", "The Wire", "Lost", and "Ugly Betty". 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 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 2006, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Daniel Powter, Sean Paul, Nelly Furtado, James Blunt, Gnarls Barkley, Shakira and Natasha Bedingfield.

A rock music genre called "Emo" is extremely popular at the moment. The genre, which stands for "emotional hardcore", has created a subculture of "Emos" who dye their hair black and wear thick-framed glasses. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as James Brown, Gerald Ford, Bam Bam Bigelow, and Anna Nicole Smith would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "Age of Empires III", "Scarface: The World Is Yours", "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance", and "Call of Duty 3".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "As Told by Ginger", "The Fairly OddParents", "LazyTown", and "Johnny Test". Children are playing with toys such as Cosmolight Alien Eggs, Furreal Luv Cubs, V. Smile TV Learning System, and Amazing Amanda (doll).
