Time Travel Gadgets Create Authors

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The next great American author is being molded in one Los Angeles time travel shop.

Anyone looking for unusual, rare items from the past or future need not go further than the Echo Park Time Travel Mart.

The shop carries the essentials needed by any time traveler – or collector of wacky junk – like “robot milk,” “bottled nihilism,” and Ricky Martin hats.

Dropping serious dough on something called “chubble,” described solely as the “product of the future,” won’t result in major buyer’s remorse either.

The proceeds go towards molding young minds into America’s next great literary giants.

See, the time traveler’s paradise is just a front for the non-profit organization 826LA, which provides support and a location for kids six to 18 to unleash their wildest ideas on paper.

With all the weird stuff surrounding them, surely there’s no shortage of inspiration for potential authors.
