Take me back to February 8th, 2007!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is February 8th, 2007, and it's a Thursday. 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 on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Grace Kelly by Mika is the number one hit song. George W. Bush Jnr. is currently the President of the United States, and the movie The Messengers is at the top of the Box Office.

In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister. Practically every teenager and adult has a MySpace or a 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 frame 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 Anna Nicole Smith, Eddie Griffin, Luciano Pavarotti and Colin McRae would all be still alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Without a Trace", "Lost", "CSI: NY" and "How I Met Your Mother". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Marvel: Ultimate Alliance", "Call of Duty 3", "Resistance: Fall of Man" and "Wii Sports". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Danny Phantom", "Peppa Pig", "Zoey 101" and "Johnny Test".

If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as VideoNow (portable player), the PlayStation 3, the Nintendo Wii and Iggle Piggle.
