The Charge: April 28, 2014
It's almost May and even though the weather isn't totally warm yet, it's time to start planning for summer. If you've got kids, you really need to start now if you want to sign them up for a camp. Luckily, we've rounded up the best camps in the city. All this talk about camp and summer brings The Charge up. We're at 75%!
Get those allergy meds ready! Things started out on the chilly side and it was certainly clear out (and the sun came up at 6:03 am) but today's pollen cast is high, according to the Weather Channel.
Minus 15 for the pollen. The Charge is now 60%.
Staten Island Rep. Michael Grimm, who made national news in January when he threatened to break the NY1 reporter "in half, like a little boy," has surrendered to the FBI. The exact charges will be announced later today.
Plus 10 for reporters getting the last laugh. Of course, it ain't over till it's over and Grimm is of course innocent until proven guilty (we're all about cliches today apparently), so the tables could always turn ... The Charge is now 70%.
So Zack Snyder is not totally busy with "Batman vs. Superman," huh? The "Man of Steel" director will shoot "Justice League" right after "Batman vs. Superman," Warner Brothers confirmed on Sunday. The script is still in development and there's no release date yet."@vfhollywood : Zack Snyder just got control of a LOT of superheroes. vnty.fr/1rwOTJT http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BmTxpp_IAAAdQls.jpg" SHNIPERRRApr. 28, 2014
Minus 5 for oversaturating us with superhero movies. Minus another 5 for reminding us that Ben Affleck is playing Batman in "Batman vs. Superman." And finally minus another 5 for making us think of terrible casting possibilities and the coming Twitter explosion. The Charge is now 55%.
Another Dominique Ansel creation... we can't keep up! Plus 5 because, well, just look at that pic. The Charge is 60%.Created the #Waffogato for Taste of a Nation tonight (and soon to be in store when it warms up): vanilla ice cream waffle with Belgium waffle bits, slightly salted, and topped with maple-syrup espresso poured on top. As the ice cream melts, little tapioca pearls are revealed and float in the melted ice cream espresso sauce. #affogato #waffle #dessertforbreakfast #totnby dominiqueansel via Instagram
Today they announced their new tour, so we're looking back at photos of Beyonce and Jay Z together through the years (OK, since 2002). A lot of basketball games, a lot of hairstyles. The Charge is up to 65% for Bey and Jay nostalgia.
The Charge is impressed by the awesome pet selfies from our readers -- but honestly, our favorite is from @timintravia! (Submit your own with #amnypets) The Charge is 70%!
