Take me back to March 1st, 2008!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is March 1st, 2008 and it's a Saturday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Pisces. Currently, people are enjoying their weekend.

Spring has started to creep in and the days are beginning to get longer. In America, the song Low by Flo-Rida & T-Pain is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Mercy by Duffy is the number one hit song.

George W. Bush Jnr. is currently the President of the United States and the movie Semi-Pro is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, Gordon Brown is the current Prime Minister. Practically every teenager and adult has a MySpace or a 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 frame 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. A social network called Facebook is beginning to surge in popularity, replacing the likes of MySpace.

Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are currently struggling to keep their heads above water. This is due to the popularity of new online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. It's 2008, so the music charts are filled with artists such as Flo Rida, Katy Perry, Rihanna and T.I. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as George Carlin, Bernie Mac, John Costelloe and Test would all be still alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "King of the Hill", "Futurama", "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and "How I Met Your Mother". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "God of War II", "Pokémon Diamond Version", "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock" and "The Simpsons Game". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Avatar: The Last Airbender", "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody", "Hannah Montana" and "The Hills".
