We cannot even begin to express our heartache over this.

The Brazilian city of Santa Maria was home to an unspeakable tragedy last night, when a fire broke out in the Boate Kiss nightclub around 2:00 in the morning and took the lives of at least 245 people, many of whom were college students.

According to reports, the blaze is thought to be related to a pyrotechnics show going on at the time, as the acoustic insulation inside of the building caught first.

According to a new study, you don't need to go to college to gain what is often called the "freshman 15".

After analyzing data from over 7,000 students surveyed in 1997 before college, then again a year later, it was determined women gained an average of 2.4 pounds freshman year, while men gained 3.4. No more than 10% of college freshman gained the mythological 15 pounds

The paper's co-author, Jay Zagorsky, explained:

Get this man a bulldog sweatshirt, he's a Yale man now!

Coming to the end of his time at Columbia in New York means that James Franco had to start thinking about which school he would like to sleep his way through to get a PhD. His first choice - Yale University and according to their rag newspaper, he's taken the pineapple express right to their front door and pulling into their English department!

How prestigious! Plus, we bet the chairs in the lecture halls are ideal for nap time!

Congrats, James!
