Modern Family's boneheaded-but-insightful son Luke (Nolan Gould) visited Ellen this week to announce his graduation from high school. But wait -- isn't he only 13?

Turns out, he's a bona fide genius, with a Mensa membership and an IQ of 150:

Over the summer I did a lot of studying and I took an exam and tested at high school, so I'm hopefully going to go on and do some online community college courses.

When Gould visited Ellen in January, he revealed that he likes to discuss nuclear fusion in household microwaves, and that his allowance is a paltry $30 a week, with the rest of his income being squirreled away for college.

We'll never watch Luke and Phil's hijinks the same way again.

The good news: One member of Pussy Riot, Yekaterina Samutsevich, was released from prison today on probation; her lawyers argued earlier this month that because the 30-year-old was kicked out of the cathedral shortly after entering, she was not part of the "aggressive movements" that offended Russia's Orthodox church and resulted in the trio's imprisonment.

The bad news: Samutsevich's bandmates, both of whom are younger than her with small children, will be transferred to a prison colony to serve out their two-year sentences.

In a genius marketing campaign for Monsters University, Pixar has created an extensively elaborate website for the institute, down to a calendar of events, departments and required textbooks, school merchandise (for four-armed monsters), dining halls, maps, and even more.

Do they accept transfers?

[thanks, marina!]

UPDATE: The jump has been aborted due to "gusty winds." No word on when it will be rescheduled.

You don't want to miss this -- watch live on YouTube at 10:30 a.m. PST/1:30 p.m. EST as Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner attempts to make history:

Baumgartner will undertake a stratospheric balloon flight to more than 120,000 feet and make a record-breaking freefall jump in the attempt to become the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall (an estimated 690 miles per hour), while delivering valuable data for medical and scientific advancement.

Fingers crossed that this ends well.

Meet Ozzy, a Vancouver cat who took a crossbow shot to the neck last week -- and promptly became the Internet's newest meme.

(And not to worry: Several days and $1,000 worth of vet services later, he's all good.)
