Yes, this is a great idea. I’m looking forward to seeing the execution of it when the app is released.

No Other Distribution Authorized Under this Agreement

I’m worried about keeping my hair, not how it’s combed. […] I don’t know that [my kids have] ever seen Back To The Future all the way through. Just as Parkinson’s isn’t a big topic of conversation in my house, neither is my career. I go down to my office every day and they say, ‘Dad’s going to work.’” — Michael J. Fox
