Take me back to June 1st, 2011!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is June 1st, 2011, and it's a Wednesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. It's summer, so the temperatures are warmer and the evenings are longer than usual.

In America, the song Rolling In The Deep by Adele is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Give Me Everything by Pitbull is the number one hit song. Barack Obama is currently the President of the United States, and the movie The Hangover Part II 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. 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 currently 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. A fad called "planking", which involves a person lying face down in an unusual location, is popular at the moment. 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 congressman Anthony Weiner has come under fire following reports that he sent a woman explicit photographs over Twitter. Weiner is currently denying that he sent the photographs.

Barcelona have won the 2011 UEFA Champions League after defeating Manchester United 3-1 in the final. A blackhat hacking group called "LulzSec" are currently in the news 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, Betty Ford, Amy Winehouse and Zyzz would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition", "Prison Break", "Glee" and "Community".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty", "Dead Space 2", "Portal 2" and "Terraria". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "One Tree Hill", "Glee", "Team Umizoomi" and "Jake and the Never Land Pirates".
