AH, WIKIPEDIA. The online encyclopedia turns 15 today and we are so thankful every day that it exists.

Copy, paste, reword, cite source in Wiki sources. Degree.

Without Wikipedia, you’d have to go to the library like some ancient fossil. IMAGINE.

2. How else could we read up on everything we ever wanted to know after watching a movie?

8. We’ve got it when we can’t fall asleep

9. It can diagnose all of our medical issues*

Yep, this pain in my finger definitely means I’m dying.
