Take me back to May 14th, 2010!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is May 14th, 2010 and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Taurus. Currently, people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

The summer of 2010 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up and the evenings are brighter than usual. In America, the song Nothin' On You by B.o.B. ft Bruno Mars is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Good Times by Roll Deep is the number one hit song.

Barack Obama is currently the President of the United States and the movie Iron Man 2 is at the top of the Box Office. In the United Kingdom, David Cameron is the current Prime Minister. The term "hipster" is currently growing in use. The word is being used to describe people who are pretentious and deliberately anti-mainstream.

Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are continuing to close their doors at the moment. This is due to the increasing popularity of online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. It's 2010, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Kesha, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Eminem and Bruno Mars. Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti has just led Chelsea to their third Premier League title following an 8-0 win over Wigan Athtelic.

Following the results of the 2010 United Kingdom general election, the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats have announced that they will be going into a coalition together. In light of his party's defeat, Gordon Brown has stepped down as the leader of the Labour Party. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Paul Gray, Gary Coleman, Lance Cade and Denise Borino-Quinn would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "The Royle Family", "Two and a Half Men", "The Big Bang Theory" and "Glee".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Batman: Arkham Asylum", "Left 4 Dead 2", "Mass Effect 2" and "God of War III". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Ben 10", "Wizards of Waverly Place", "The Suite Life on Deck" and "Sonny with a Chance". If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as the PlayStation 3, Iggle Piggle, ZhuZhu Pets and the iPad.
