Take me back to January 14th, 2011!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is January 14th, 2011 and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Capricorn. Currently, people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

The Christmas holiday season is long over, the decorations have been taken down and a sense of normality has returned. In America, the song Grenade by Bruno Mars is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, What's My Name by Rihanna ft Drake is the number one hit song.

Barack Obama is currently the President of the United States and the movie The Green Hornet 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. Pre-made comics called "Rage Comics" are extremely popular on the Internet at the moment, as people use them to share relatable experiences. People on the Internet are using the phrase "That Really Rustled My Jimmies" to express their annoyance at things.

A wave of demonstrations and protests have been taking place across the Middle East, in what has become known as the "Arab Spring". It's 2011, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Adele, Maroon 5, LMFAO, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Bruno Mars. A Youtube video of a homeless man called Ted Williams is going viral after he shows off his radio voice skills. The success of the video has led to Williams receiving various job offers.

A meme called "Inglip" is currently popular on websites such as Reddit, as users post commands that they received via the words shown in CAPTCHA images. In soccer, Kenny Dalglish has returned as the manager of Liverpool following the sacking of Roy Hodgson. America is in shock following an assassination attempt on House Representative Gabby Giffords in Casas Adobes, Arizona. A 22-year-old man called Jared Lee Loughner was arrested at the scene.

Lionel Messi has been awarded the 2010 FIFA Ballon d'Or, beating out Barcelona teammates Xavi and Andrés Iniesta. Following mass protests, Tunisian president Ben Ali has dissolved the government and fled the country. This has effectively ended Ali's 23 years in power. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Nate Dogg, Elizabeth Taylor, Randy Savage and Ryan Dunn would all be still alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Smallville", "Skins", "Glee" and "White Collar". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Heavy Rain", "God of War III", "Halo: Reach" and "Civilization V". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Johnny Test", "Ben 10", "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" and "Big Time Rush".
