The Kormoran was disguised as a Dutch merchant ship

Wreck of German Auxiliary Cruiser Kormoran located

The discovery of the wreck, 2½ kilometres underwater off the Western Australian coast, is a breakthrough in the long-running efforts to find the last resting place of the Sydney and its crew of 645 sailors.

The Sydney was lost with all hands after a fierce battle with the Kormoran on November 19, 1941. The location of the light cruiser and the circumstances of its sinking have been among the biggest mysteries in Australian military history.

Vatican: Polluting the Environment is now a deadly sin

No longer is it enough to avoid sloth, but now we have to go green, since polluting the environment is one of the "new" deadly sins. Exxon Mobil, it would seem, is doubly cursed since it is raked in insane profits (a new no-no) all the while fueling global warming.

Genetic modification is also on the list, which should bring hellfire raining down on Monsanto and most of the Midwest, where all those corn and soy seeds are planted.
