Take me back to August 19th, 2007!

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

The date is August 19th, 2007, and it's a Sunday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Leo. People are currently enjoying their weekend. However, because it's a Sunday, some are dreading the week ahead.

It's summer, so the temperatures are warmer and the evenings are longer than usual. In America, the song Beautiful Girls by Sean Kingston is at the top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, With Every Heartbeat by Robyn is the number-one hit song.

George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Rush Hour 3 is at the top of the box office. Gordon Brown is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Smallville", "The Office", "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", and "Psych".

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. Financial markets are currently rattled and issues with the U.S. subprime mortgage sector seem to be spiraling out of control. American Home Mortgage recently filed for bankruptcy and international banking group BNP Paribas has blocked withdrawals from three of its hedge funds due to a lack of liquidity. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Luciano Pavarotti, Colin McRae, Sean Taylor, and Evel Knievel would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "Resistance: Fall of Man", "Medieval II: Total War", "Wii Sports", and "Pokémon Diamond Version". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Ed, Edd n Eddy", "SpongeBob SquarePants", "Dora the Explorer", and "Everybody Hates Chris". Children are playing with toys such as Bionicle LEGO, Doctor Dreadful Freaky Food Lab, the Nintendo Wii, and Iggle Piggle.
