Seems Secure

from here (source image)

Putting plastic over your face doesn't strike me as a great way to protect your ongoing state of wellness, but I guess that's more than he's doing for his toes.

That's No Shield

I couldn't resist this one. What could they possibly have been thinking? He's basically holding up a bag of AIR to protect himself from a flying kick. How could that possibly work?

What? Who, Me? Nah, I would never use a password like that, but I can see how adding 1 each time your password 'expires' might start to seem like a good option to people fed up by changing their password every 90 days. It's 1 step up from cycling through the minimum number of passwords necessary in order to get back to using your original one.

Are You Sure You Wanna Be Like Them?

from here

Thanks to InfoSec Taylor Swift for drawing my attention to an example of "Military Grade" being used by marketing in the wild (and for being coy about it who it was).
