- Next step: to invent film!

ON THIS DAY
Until 154 BC, today -- March 1st -- was New Year's Day, according to the Roman calendar. So if you see some hung-over Romans running around today, well, that explains it.
In 1781, the Articles of Confederation were adopted by the Continental Congress. It was during a continental breakfast.
In 1790, congress authorized the first census. I believe that was the first and only time congress made any census. They've never census to me!
On this date in 1864, a patent was issued for the movie projector.
It was on this date back in 1913 that the Federal Income Tax took effect according to the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This really should be a national day of mourning.
The first FM radio station went on the air on this date in 1941. Before then, AM was cool.
The very first K-Mart opened on this date in 1962 after a series of very unfortunate A through J-Marts.
On this date in 1961, Mattel introduced Barbie's boyfriend, the Ken doll. Sadly for Barbie, a few weeks later she found the sad truth -- accessories not included.
Also in 1961, President Kennedy established the Peace Corps, the toughest job you'll ever love. His job had its drawbacks, too.
