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.

We (GF and I) have same issue at some local beer festivals. I am a total beer nerd and I am there to talk to the brewers, get their input as I am tasting a brand new beer the world has yet to see.

Problem is we have reached the popularity of the masses and all the beer guzzlers have started going to festivals. Last year's little festival reached over 3k people in a space maybe a football field in size. Neither of us could deal with that, half way through my check list we bailed and had a beer out of our fridge at home.

An empty nightclub doesn't stay in business very long.
