Take me back to October 31, 2007

Let's go back to the 2000s.

The date is October 31, 2007, and it's a Wednesday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Scorpio. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

The summer is long gone. Temperatures have become much cooler, and the evenings are beginning to get darker. There is a fresh, earthy scent in the air, and fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways, and sidewalks. It's Halloween, so kids are trick-or-treating and adults are watching horror movies.

In America, the song "Crank That" by Soulja Boy is at the top of the singles charts, while "Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Saw IV 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 "Stargate SG-1", "The Shield", "Room Raiders", and "Skins". 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 Sean Taylor, Evel Knievel, Ike Turner, and Benazir Bhutto would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Double Agent", "World in Conflict", "Portal", and "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "All Grown Up! (Rugrats)", "Avatar: The Last Airbender", "Everybody Hates Chris", and "Horrid Henry". Children are playing with toys such as Bratz Babyz, Pixel Chix, Gross Out Doodle Monster, and Lil Luvables Fluffy Factory.
