Pat says the perpendiculars of rhombi do not intersect at a right angle. Of
course they do! Since all rhombi have two diagonals that connect opposite pairs
of vertices, then by congruent triangles, the rhombus is symmetric across each
diagonal, have equal opposite angles, and perpendicular diagonals.
  
Every rhombus is a kite. No mathematician restricts the definition of "kite" to
a quadrilateral in which ONLY two adjacent sides are congruent.
