Take me back to November 19th, 2006!

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

The date is November 19th, 2006, and it's a Sunday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Scorpio. Currently, people are enjoying their weekend.

In America, Thanksgiven Day of 2006 is just around the corner. 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 on top of the singles charts.

Over in the UK, The Rose by Westlife is the number one hit song. George W. Bush Jnr. is currently the President of the United States, and the movie Borat is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister.

Cameras on phones have become the norm. Furthermore, the quality of these cameras are continuing to increase with each new phone release. We are now entering into an age where any event can be photographed or recorded in an instance. Practically every teenager and adult has a MySpace or a 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 frame 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 be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "ER", "The Sopranos", "The Shield" and "Prison Break".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Shadow of the Colossus", "Just Cause", "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance" and "Final Fantasy XII". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Drake & Josh", "American Dragon: Jake Long", "Avatar: The Last Airbender" and "The Hills". Popular toys at the moment include the likes of Betty Spaghetty (doll), VideoNow (portable player), the PlayStation 3 and the Nintendo Wii.
