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.]

Crinkle crank walls are the best!

“A good, simple expression of this scenario comes when someone says something like “think outside the box”, or that they need to “broaden their horizons”. These are ultimately true, but all you can do inside of a realm of authority is think inside another box. Or, better yet, broaden the number of boxes you are involved in.“

For more on the realms of authority and permission, check out this post at Brutally Naked. I should probably point out that the “me” in this comic is not actually ME. My little boxes look a bit different…
