Take me back to July 2, 2007

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Monday, July 2, 2007. Anyone born today will have the star sign Cancer. The weekend has just passed, so some people are feeling a bit down. Others are tired after partying too much.

In America, the July 4th celebrations are fast approaching. The summer of 2007 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. The song "Umbrella" by Rihanna is at the top of the music charts in the United States and the United Kingdom.

George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Ratatouille is at the top of the box office. Gordon Brown 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.

The meltdown in the subprime mortgage market is continuing to worry experts. Investment bank Bear Stearns has had to bail out two of its hedge funds. 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 "Smallville", "Boston Legal", "Ugly Betty", and "Dexter".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Saints Row", "Bully", "Resistance: Fall of Man", and "Medieval II: Total War". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Kim Possible", "Go, Diego, Go!", "Wonder Pets!", and "Mr. Meaty".
