Take me back to June 1, 2011

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

The date is June 1, 2011, and it's a Wednesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

In the United States, the Memorial Day weekend of 2011 has recently come and gone. To many, this means that the summer has officially started. The summer of 2011 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. In America, the song "Rolling In The Deep" by Adele is at the top of the singles charts, while "Give Me Everything" by Pitbull is the number-one song in the UK.

Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and the movie The Hangover Part II is at the top of the box office. David Cameron is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Psych", "Keeping Up with the Kardashians", "Nikita", and "Raising Hope".

Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are continuing to close their doors at the moment. Sadly, it seems as though they will be unable to compete with online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. People are using pre-made comics called "Rage Comics" to share funny and relatable experiences. It's 2011, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Adele, Maroon 5, LMFAO, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Bruno Mars.

Anti-government protests are taking place in cities across Syria. A civil war is raging on in Libya. Large battles are taking place between Colonel Gaddafi's government forces and Libyan rebels, who are being supported by NATO. There is a strange new fad called "planking", which involves a person lying face down in an unusual location.

The ongoing trial of Casey Anthony for the murder her 2-year-old daughter Caylee is receiving widespread attention on social media. Actress Lindsay Lohan has just received a 120-day jail sentence for theft. Former Serbian general Ratko Mladić has been arrested in Lazarevo, northern Serbia for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Kim Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries have recently become engaged.

Democratic Party congressman Anthony Weiner has come under fire following reports that he sent a woman explicit photographs over Twitter. Weiner is denying that he sent the images. Barcelona have won the 2011 UEFA Champions League after defeating Manchester United 3-1 in the final. A blackhat hacking group called "LulzSec" is receiving a lot of attention following a number of high-profile attacks on companies such as Sony.

NBA star Shaquille O'Neal has announced on social media that he will be retiring. An Advice Animal meme called "Good Guy Greg" is beginning to take off in popularity. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Ryan Dunn, Peter Falk, Betty Ford, and Roberts Blossom would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty", "Halo: Reach", "FIFA 11", and "Duke Nukem Forever". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "One Tree Hill", "iCarly", "Victorious", and "Adventure Time". Children are playing with toys such as the PlayStation 3, Playmobil Horse Farm, the KidiZoom Camera, and Duck Hunter.
