Our brains like order, which is why this collection of imperfections is so infuriating. Things which are ordered seem natural are are easy for the brain to make sense of; imperfect or flawed things cause us to pause and do a double-take. Are those new tiles you put in really off-center or are you just seeing things?

These photos of broken patterns, imperfect symmetry, and counter intuitive placement are guaranteed to drive you bonkers. Do you have any photos that annoy the heck out of you? Vote on the most infuriating photo, or submit your own!

The flipped seat looks like it's easier to get into and gives better space for people who are picky about how far they sit from a table.
