Fill 'er' up

Thank you, come again: A gas station designed in 1927 by Frank Lloyd Wright has finally been built in Buffalo, New York.

The stylish station sports a second-floor observation room, two fireplaces and a hand-tooled copper canopy over the hot dog warmer.

Blast off: NASA plans to launch a satellite Tuesday that will study carbon dioxide, the main driver of climate change. The launch comes five years after an earlier attempt fizzled and fell into the ocean.

Taking no chances this time, the space agency will use a rocket powered by the superheated air emitted by Al Gore whenever climate change deniers cause him to sigh heavily.

Don't know much about history: On this day in 1908, an asteroid exploded above remote Siberia, devastating 800 square miles.

The massive blast might have taken place over a populated area were it not for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who heroically stripped off his shirt, traveled to 1908 in Russia's top-secret time machine (which he personally invented), and deflected the object's path with a series of well-placed nuclear detonations.
