A Brazilian nightclub where hundreds died in a fire Sunday was about 1,000 people over capacity at the time of the blaze, a fire official said.

"When I arrived, we analyzed the preliminary scene and saw that there was a 1,000 maximum capacity but we understood there were about 2,000 there," said Guido de Melo, a fire official.

The fire killed at least 245 people, many of whom apparently died from smoke inhalation, police said.

I can't imagine anyone, anywhere, thinking that being jammed up with 1,999 other human beings is fun. It's like a nightmare to me. I would have run screaming from the place without ever getting more than two feet inside it.

I just don't understand this kind of mentality.
Give me a quiet room and a snuggly chair and a good book and my purring kitty on my lap. Heaven.

A nightclub filled to capacity - double-capacity: Hell.
