Floor 801 has 148 empty beer bottles on the floor. It seems probable that one of them is not like the others, and just doesn't belong.

Floor 819 contains a list of divorces that started on Floor 817. It's spiteful like that.

It also contains a petting zoo full of tenrecs, echidnas, hedgehogs and porcupines.

Floor 821 is not out of order. It's in exactly the right place. The other floors are the ones that are out of order. If all of them were correctly rearranged, 821 would be fine.
