Today in Heritage History, May 26, 1961, the first black light is sold in the U.S. Prior to the invention of marijuana and LSD, black lights were used only by Mormon’s and Southern Baptists at parties and religious social gatherings to “trip-out” friends with the “freaky” details of their velvet Jesus paintings.

Today is also National Sorry Day in Australia where Australians recognize their regret for the mistreatment of the Aboriginal people. It was patterned after the U.S. Native American holiday of April 1st, Fuck You We Took all Your Property Day. To compensate Australia has allowed a number of Aboriginal Casino’s to operate throughout the country where Australians can show-up for a fun-filled day and try their hand at Blow Dart Roulette (drunk).
