Researchers have found new pieces of the Titanic that lead them to believe that the stern of the great liner sunk much more quickly than the widely held belief that it took 20 minutes to go down as seen in the movie. (story)

The original discoverer of the Titanic’s wreckage, Dr. Robert Ballard, released a particularly snippy response:

“They found a fragment, big deal,” he said. “Am I surprised? No. When you go down there, there’s stuff all over the place. It hit an iceberg and it sank. Get over it.”

Who pissed in his cornflakes?
