There's something about broken patterns, a symmetry that's out of order, and flawed elements that seem to trigger us... Even if you're not a perfectionist, our brains just seem to prefer things that are ordered in a nice way. Not to mention how annoying things not in the right place can be.

To show you what we're talking about, Bored Panda has put together a list of disturbing photos that are guaranteed to invoke OCD. Don't believe me? Just take a look below and try to go through the whole imperfections list without muttering "aarrgh."

Do you have any awkward photos that annoy you? Add them to the list, and don't forget to vote!
