7 deadly sins, extrapolated

Boing Boing reports: [edited]

If you arrange the 7 Deadly Sins around a heptagon, label them A-G, and connect each corner, you get 21 secondary sins. For instance Sloth + Pride = Slackers.

And, as a comment indicates, it doesn't have to stop there. By using the binomial coefficient you could extrapolate 127 ways to put together any number of the seven sins. Or 120 ways, if you don't count each of the seven sins individually.
