Great post. I also like the idea. Perhaps a transaction tax could help pay for it if the Robin Hood tax can tackle those that can avoid paying their fair share of tax now (ie. some of the 1% who can afford expensive accountants) ensuring all are taxed more fairly.
However, I would suggest following the advice of Prof Steve Keen (Kingston Uni, UK - famous for predicting the 2008 GFC link between private debt bomb that neoliberals chose to ignore https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Keen , http://renegadeinc.com/meet-the-renegades-steve-keen/). He advises 'helicopter money' or the UBI first be used as a modern day debt-jubilee to pay down private debt, and measures be taken for those without debt to prevent it being used to fuel property speculation bubbles, i.e. more hard earned taxes flying overseas c/- foreign banks. Otherwise the short-term gains may be lost on increased property prices/rent via the rentiers (until the bubble "pops" of course like in Ireland, ouch http://bit.ly/25gL6JU)
"Society and the economy are organized so only the wealthy do not need to go into debt, which is serfdom in a neofeudal arrangement.
The essence of neocolonialism is the “company store,” which extends credit that can never be paid off as wages are stagnant. In a neocolonial economy in which only the top Caste of Managers, Technocrats and Professionals (the top 10%) can expand their income and wealth, debt-serfs are impoverished by servicing debt. As the real (inflation-adjusted) incomes of the bottom 90% decline or stagnate, debt service consumes an increasing amount of disposable earned income."

Our daughter had eczema, probably my defective genes. We beat it now with avoidance of some acidic fruits like braeburn apples, all foods with MSG, the occasional dose of cider vinegar and plenty of sleep - stress makes it worse.
I also had an aunty who was subjected to ECT following the harrowing effects of losing her child to the state as a teenager, during the days of shameful childbirth out of wedlock. She never really recovered from that. Great our society has grown-up in many ways.
We humans used to sleep in 2 bursts in olden times before light bulbs, so don't get too stressed by waking after the "first sleep". Here's a good book that might keep you awake on the subject until you get used to the idea:
Also, watch out for the blue screens stuffing with your circadian rhythms. Install f.lux (http://justgetflux.com/) or similar so our ever present devices to regulate your exposure. I've installed as an app (twighlight) and on my kids machines.
