Take me back to May 26, 2007

Let's go back to the 2000s.

It is Saturday, May 26, 2007. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Gemini. The work week is over and Saturday has finally come, so people are spending time with their kids, going to bars, shopping, playing video games, and watching sports.

The summer of 2007 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up, and the evenings are brighter than usual. The school year is nearly finished. It is Memorial Day weekend in the United States. People are attending picnics, barbecues, and other outdoor gatherings to mark the beginning of summer. In America, the song "Buy U A Drank" by T-Pain & Yung Joc is at the top of the singles charts, while "Umbrella" by Rihanna is the number-one song in the UK.

George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Shrek the Third 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 "Two and a Half Men", "Stargate Atlantis", "House", and "The Office". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Dead Rising", "FIFA 07", "Microsoft Flight Simulator X", and "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "That's So Raven", "American Dragon: Jake Long", "Go, Diego, Go!", and "Ben 10". Popular toys at the moment include Bionicle LEGO, VideoNow (portable player), Magic Glow Doodle Bear, and Pixel Chix.
