Arranged in a pattern different from what is regular or expected; (v.) 2. to arrange in an unexpected pattern; ("qwertily"; adv.) 3. in a qwerty (i.e., unexpected or counter-intuitive) manner. [From the QWERTY keyboard arrangement, designed to avoid the bunching of the various keys on a manual keyboard, an artifact of putting the keys in alphabetical order.] {Duplicate.}

e.g., Qwerty color arrangement, by the increasing number of vowels in their names, which is totally arbitrary, for colors, which are usually arranged by frequency: red, yellow, purple, green, blue, indigo, orange. || Continents qwertied by number of people I know who are from there: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Antarctica. Obviously, it's far more natural to arrange them by something sensible, like size or population or something. || And really odd: Planets arranged qwertily by generation of each one's eponymous deity in the pantheon: 1. Earth (mother) and her husband, 2. Uranus, (sky) father of 3. Saturn (who killed him) and of 4. Venus (born of his dismembered genitals); then Saturn's children: 5. Neptune and 6. Jupiter (in that order), and Jupiter's children: 7. Mars and 8. Mercury. (Were Pluto still part of the "planets," it would be number 5, before Neptune ... I think.)
