Take me back to August 25, 2007

Let's go back to the 2000s.

The date is August 25, 2007, and it's a Saturday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Virgo. 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 is coming to an end and fall is just around the corner. In America, the song "Beautiful Girls" by Sean Kingston is at the top of the singles charts, while "Stronger" by Kanye West is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Superbad 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 "Scrubs", "Smallville", "House", and "Prison Break". 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 "Dead Rising", "Saints Row", "God of War II", and "Pokémon Diamond Version".

Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Danny Phantom", "Avatar: The Last Airbender", "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody", and "Go, Diego, Go!". Children are playing with toys such as LEGO Star Wars, Doctor Dreadful Freaky Food Lab, 7-Eleven Slurpee Drink Maker, and the Nintendo Wii.
