A phenomena that happens to a computer's keyboard when a human being is bored to death...
Bored to death in a cube a human decides to type qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm (all the keyboard buttons in an orderly way) to a search engine to see what comes up. Then finds definitions for it and then adds a new one...

This is the layout on modern computer keyboards. This came about because on typewriters, using the alphabetical method, meant that the most commonly used keys were next to each other, and got stuck a lot. The new keyboard method came about because some bright spark placed all the most common keys apart from each other, and the qwerty keyboard has stayed with us forever! :-)
You can also spell "TYPEWRITER" from the letters on the top row! WOW!

Contrary to popular belief, one does not necessarily have to be bored to search and/or type qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm, only extremely skilled at procrastinating.
I have to read and take notes on the book 1776 in its entirety by tomorrow morning, so I decided to procrastinate by typing qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm.

qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm is the exact opposite of mnbvcxzlkjhgfdsapoiuytrewq, whereas the one can’t exist without the other.
This phenomenon will always remain constant for data entry keyboards with the QWERTY layout (hence the name ‘QWERTY keyboards’). This is true to the same extent that that DEATH is the opposite of LIFE, yet the one can’t occur without the other since both are linked and the one always follows the other. The one actually depends on the other and can’t exist without the existence of the other. Therefore qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm will always be the opposite of mnbvcxzlkjhgfdsapoiuytrewq. Unless the standard keyboard layout changes to something in the line of werqytuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm to which the opposite will then be mnbvcxzlkjhgfdsapoiutyqrew. Should this happen, then a standard data entry keyboard will not be known as a ‘QWERTY keyboard’, anymore, but rather a ‘WERQYT keyboard’. If you were to then pronounce the first six letters of the new keyboard layout then linguistically it would sound the same as when pronouncing ‘WORK-IT’, which is coincidentally what you should be doing at the office instead of reading all this nonsense....
