Marc Wilson: I believe that "perfection" is frowned upon in Islamic culture, 
and that all rugs (for instance) contain at least one deliberate mistake, 
because "perfection belongs to Allah".

Matt G.: I've always been a bit bemused by the level of arrogance such 
attitudes require.

Carol B.: The MIT student center has a deliberate mistake.  We considered 
this amusing because the building has so many unintentional mistakes.
