Take me back to October 11, 2013

Ready for a walk down memory lane?

The date is October 11, 2013, and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Libra. Many people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

The summer is long gone. Temperatures have become much cooler, and the evenings are beginning to get darker. There is a fresh, earthy scent in the air, and fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways, and sidewalks. In America, the song "Royals" by Lorde is at the top of the singles charts, while "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus is the number-one song in the UK.

Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and the movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 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 "Keeping Up with the Kardashians", "Sherlock", "Arrow", and "Hannibal".

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. It's 2013, so the music charts are being dominated by artists such as Macklemore, Robin Thicke, Imagine Dragons and Bruno Mars. A social networking website called Vine is extremely popular at the moment.

A new Internet meme called "Doge", which consists of an image of a Shiba Inu dog with broken English written on it, is being shared online at the moment. The United States federal government is in a shutdown due to a congressional stalemate over the implementation of Obamacare. The app Snapchat has just released a new feature called "My Story".

American TV personality Kris Jenner has just confirmed that she and her husband, Bruce Jenner, have separated after 22 years of marriage. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Paul Walker, Nelson Mandela, James Avery, and Ariel Sharon would all still be alive. People are playing video games such as "DmC: Devil May Cry", "Tomb Raider", "Saints Row IV", and "Beyond: Two Souls".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "The Fairly OddParents", "Johnny Test", "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse", and "Good Luck Charlie". Children are playing with toys such as Cards Against Humanity, Skylanders Giants figures, Lalaloopsy Silly Hair, and UNO Roboto.
