"Legend has it that sometime in the mid-1960s one of Polaroid's research photographers
inadvertenly left a Polaroid negative face down on a countertop, later picked it up,
and found an image had transferred to the counter. He and several of his colleagues began
to play with the process until Polaroid founder Dr. Edwin Land found out about it and
sternly discouraged this deviant activity. And so Pandora's box was closed ....
for the time being. - John Reuter"
