The Charge: May 9, 2014
The weekend is (almost) here! And while that's exciting news, the Metro-North bar car makes its final run on Friday night. Sad face if you like drinking a beer with strangers. The Charge is at 50%.
This is a sad start to a Friday: Lee Marshall, the voice of Tony the Tiger, died of esophageal cancer on April 26.RIP Lee Marshall. You were GREEEEAAAAT!“@TheLadBible : The voice of 'Tony the Tiger' dies of cancer aged 64. RIP Lee Marshall. http://pbs.twimg.com/media/BnL2WNwCUAE2Gqi.jpg” is this NOT you? @tigertony8
Minus 15. The Charge is now 35%.
So the NY state senate voted yogurt as the state snack. NY's own food correspondent, Jon Stewart, had a few words to say about this. "I'm telling you this was maybe the best 40 minutes any legislative chamber anywhere in the country has ever spent," Stewart said. Seriously though, what is Sen. Ranzenhofer have against pretzels?

Plus 20 for reminding us about NY state legislature. Just in case anyone forgot. The Charge is now 55%.
Take a look at your inbox from the predawn hours and there's a surprise: You are not being punished for having Netflix, but those who are late to the game are not so lucky. Netflix streaming prices for new members are going up. Netflix confirmed the price increase--but insisted prices for new members will stay stagnant at $8.99 for two years now.
Minus 10 because people might be late to the Netflix game but that doesn't mean they deserve to be punished. Actually minus another 5 because It's gray, cold, and rainy here in NYC, we need our Netflix more than ever and it's just mean to do this on a day like today. If this is all some kind of reminder that we need an intervention from our Netflix, then minus another two and stop judging us. The Charge is now 38%.(h/t our inboxes)
Okay, there is a bright spot to this dreary Friday. One Direction's Harry Styles visited Brazil and let's just say he had some trouble with his swimsuit. Oh Harry.
