New Facebook App Idea
It’s March 28th in Northeast Ohio. About 150 days into the big chill. Winter’s last gasp.
And here is my idea for a new Facebook app.
It’s called Newton’s First Law of Spring Break.
Sir Isaac Newton radically changed our understanding of the Universe with his Three Laws of Motion. His third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. My app is based on this law.
First, the app confirms you are actually in Northeast Ohio between March 15 and April 15.
Then, the app closely monitors the photos posted by your Facebook Friends. For every Spring Break picture on the beach (or anywhere above 40 degrees) posted by your Facebook “Friends”, the app posts an equal and opposite reaction picture of a dirty parking lot snow pile or a bumper to bumper, interstate blizzard nightmare.
Now someone in Florida can rip off this idea and go make a fortune while we scrape the inch of ice off our BBQ grills and hope the windchill hasn’t made us all sterile.
