Today's Newspaper Thrown Back in Time

Sometimes, when I am reading the newspaper, I imagine what it would be like if the newspaper I was reading got thrown back in time ten or twenty years. Imagine if you were in the year 2004, or 1994, and somehow had gotten ahold of the newspaper for this very date in 2014. How much context would you be missing? How much would you have to piece together? How much would seem all too familiar, and how much would seem bizarre and unbelievable?
