In another attempt to break the world record for stupid, many people have tweeted, facebooked, or instagrammed pictures of their debit cards for one reason or another. Their defense? You can't see the PIN or security code!

Okay, let's break this down. For starters, when was the last time you made an online transaction and the seller required your PIN? I'd bet it's somewhere between "not even once" and "never." That leaves us with the three-digit security code on the back. Call me crazy, but 999 potential security code options isn't that many. A dedicated thief could easily figure out your security code in a matter of hours using pure trial and error.

So, in summary, a word to the wise: don't post your debit card numbers online.

Chef Takes Glorious Revenge on the Restaurant That Allegedly Wrongfully Terminated Him

Jim Knight is the (former) head chef of The Plough, a pub in Oxfordshire, UK. Recently, Jim was fired for what he believes was an unjust reason: he wanted to take vacation time to spend with his infant daughter.

When Jim found out that he'd been sacked, he remembered a small but useful fact that the restaurant had neglected to account for:

Jim was the employee who created The Plough's official Twitter account, making him the only one with access to it...

United Airlanes is the Worst Airlane EVER!

In May of 2012, Tumblr user LeonsBuddyDave made a fake Twitter account with the name "United Airlanes" (as opposed to United AirLINES). He posted a few gag tweets and then left the account alone. Recently, he decided to check up on the account just for kicks and saw that quite a few people had tweeted at the parody account believing it was the real thing.

One of the Game of Thrones Writers Re-Watched the Red Wedding and Live-Tweeted the Whole Thing

Bryan Cogman is a writer on the HBO show, Game of Thrones. He read the books, wrote for the series, watched the show when it originally aired, and still had a hard time getting through The Red Wedding scene the second time around. Which is understandable because it's not really something any GOT fan wants to go through again. But Bryan did it, just for us. And he live-tweeted the whole episode. Here are the highlights.

What Famous Companies Would Look Like With Black Metal Logos

Since 1977, artist Christophe Szpajdel has designed over 7,000 logos for metal bands ranging from black metal to death metal to pure depressive black funeral doom metal. His latest release of artwork takes a more lighthearted turn, reimagining the logos of famous companies with a little bit of unholy, mutilated, gutgrinding, necrotic demonrage mixed in. Fun!

Build-A-Bear's hastily-deleted tweet was just one of several brands caught in the act of turning one of the most deadly attacks on American soil into a chance to promote their #brand with #sales on Twitter. That doesn't even compare to these four though. Here's Intimacy Box, a lingerie company, who had the gumption to even get the date of the attack wrong:

Of course, what better way to think about and honor 9/11 than from a company that makes prosthetic fappable lady-bits:



And finally, here's a series of tweets (via Brandon Wall) from a Bikram Yoga studio in Arlington, VA:



Bikram Yoga eventually apologized for any insensitivity, but not before laying down the Loose Change conspiracy nonsense and a healthy lack of Basic Human Dignity.
