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.

These women kick serious ass -- here's the intro to their inspiring story:

Skittish at first, then wide-eyed with delight, the women and girls entered the sea, smiling, splashing and then joining hands, getting knocked over by the waves, throwing back their heads and ultimately laughing with joy.

The women were Palestinians from the southern part of the West Bank, which is landlocked, and Israel does not allow them in. They risked criminal prosecution, along with the dozen Israeli women who took them to the beach. And that, in fact, was part of the point: to protest what they and their hosts consider unjust laws.

Ryan Andresen has been a Boy Scout for 12 years. Even after coming out as gay at 16, he stayed with the Scouts.

But now he's been denied the chance to rise rank to Eagle Scout.

The Boy Scouts of America says its decision reflects its "Youth Leadership" policy statement:

In the unlikely event that an older boy were to hold himself out as homosexual, he would not be able to continue in a youth leadership position.

Andresen is in shock, especially since he thought his Scoutmaster had his back:

He had been telling me all along that we'd get by the gay thing. It was by far the biggest goal of my life. It's totally devastating.

Andresen and his mom have started an online petition to convince the Boy Scouts to change their mind. But it would need to happen quickly -- he turns 18 in three days, which means his Eagle Scout eligibility is just about up.

Remember Anzac the joey and Peggy the wombat, the marsupial orphans who were rescued and became besties?

Now they've got a third lil pal -- meet Cupcake the swamp wallaby, who like her pals, was orphaned when a car accident took mom.

The trio, who live at Australia's Wildabout Wildlife Rescue Center, all are about 4 to 5 months old.
