History of the Wave

Video Find of the Day

The Onion has a habit of taking a great idea and spending it all on the title. This piece has some nice detail, though. I enjoyed the information about Edmund I. It inspired me to look him up on Wikipedia, where I learned that he died in 946 AD during a fracas that arose when he was partying in Pucklechurch.

Pucklechurch is a village in South Gloucestershire, England. It sits on an elevated plateau about 8 miles to the northeast of Bristol, 8 miles to the northwest of Bath and just south of the Cotswolds. Pucklechurch has its own website, which it calls PuckleWeb.
