Remember darkrooms, developers, red lighting and chemical baths? Back before you could take pictures with your phone, you had to use a type of camera that required rolls of "film. " Light would be let through the lens of the camera and would coat the film, capturing an image that appeared on the other side of the lens. Then you'd have to go into a darkened room (called a "darkroom") to open up the film cartridge and mix it with chemicals to create a film negative.
Stick with us here. Then you would use equipment to shine light through the negative onto photographic paper, which was then put through a series of chemical baths. You would need to time these processes in order to properly develop a photograph, and to time them, you'd need a timer. One that looks a lot like this watch. Our watch brings it all back for photography enthusiasts. Glows in the dark.

Brought to You by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild
The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to
Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless
Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the
assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the
question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)
Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by
selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent
III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at
More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in
New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling
the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.
