Diego

I was a teenager who had recently started attending college. We had the news channel playing on our dorm TV while we ate Chinese takeout. I didn't know who Anna Nicole Smith was at the time, but it was a huge story that night. I still associate her passing with my early college days. It's mind boggling to think that 17 years have passed. Time flies by once you reach your twenties.

I had gotten home with my family after attending a funeral of a family member and the coverage of Anna Nicole Smith's death (which had been preceded in the previous weeks about who the father of her daughter Dannielynn was.) was basically what the cable news channels were covering that afternoon and it is hard to believe 17 years have gone by since this happened.

Take me back to February 8, 2007

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Thursday, February 8, 2007. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aquarius. Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

In America, the song "Irreplaceable" by Beyonce is at the top of the singles charts, while "Grace Kelly" by Mika is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie The Messengers is at the top of the box office. Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

Practically every teenager and adult has a MySpace or Bebo account. 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. Meanwhile, in technology news, more and more people are beginning to use the Internet on their phones. This transition towards mobile Internet has been aided by the recent roll-out of faster 3G networks and the introduction of larger touchscreen phones.

It's 2007, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Sean Kingston, Soulja Boy and Nelly Furtado. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Eddie Jamaal Griffin, Luciano Pavarotti, Colin McRae, and Sean Taylor would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation", "Without a Trace", "One Tree Hill", and "Friday Night Lights".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day!", "Just Cause", "Battlefield 2142", and "Medieval II: Total War". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "7th Heaven", "American Dragon: Jake Long", "Avatar: The Last Airbender", and "Johnny Test". Popular toys at the moment include LEGO Star Wars, Amazing Amanda (doll), Roboraptor, and the Nintendo Wii.
