We've all had those busy weeks or months where we fall a little behind in keeping up with news. If you'd like to catch up on what's going on, Wikipedia has a fantastic "date view" that will summarise news over a specific time period.
Redditor blueridgemountain shares this handy tip: All you need to do is head to Wikipedia and search for a month and a year, such as "August 2013." You'll see a quick summary of major events on each day, and you can click through to individual articles if you want more detail. If you haven't been able to keep up with news, it's a nice way to quickly catch up on what's been going on.
