Initial Description
Here's how to use this:

* To access something in the local storage, type `Evan.local('name')`. You may need to use `JSON.parse()` on this result. Returns `null` if nothing's there.
* To assign something in the local storage, type `Evan.local('name', value)`.
* To remove something from the local storage, type `Evan.local('name', null)`.

This may not work if private browsing is enabled (eg, on Safari for iOS).
