My friends and longtime collaborators at Accurat map the life-cycle of ideas for Popular Science – a visualization of the rise and fall of citations as a marker of a scientific paper’s lifespan.
Also see Accurat’s visualizations of famous writers’ sleep habits, history’s 100 geniuses of language, and the history of the Nobel Prize.

Crinkle-Crankle wall, England. (From Wiki)
The crinkle crankle wall economizes on bricks, despite its sinuous configuration, because it can be made just one brick thin. If a wall this thin were to be made in a straight line, without buttresses, it would easily topple over. The alternate convex and concave curves in the wall provide stability and help it to resist lateral forces.
Both crinkle and crankle are defined as something with bends and turns (Webster’s), but the term is also thought to come from Old English meaning zig-zag.
Many crinkle-crankle walls are found in the Fen Country of East Anglia.
[There are some in the States too: Thomas Jefferson (1743 to 1826) incorporated so-called serpentine walls into the architecture of the University of Virginia, which he founded. Flanking both sides of its landmark rotunda and extending down the length of the lawn are 10 pavilions, each with its own walled garden separated by crinkle crankle walls.]

Mind blown. This wavy wall actually reduces the amount of bricks required in construction.
