This doesn't look pleasant.

A Danish man is claiming that his Apple Watch gave him "severe burns" on his wrist and fingers, but the tech company says "No way."

Jorgen Mouitzen was in a restroom when he said he felt pain and smelt burning flesh. He quickly realized it was coming from his Apple Watch, he told Yahoo News.

Mouitzen says he rushed to remove the watch, burning his fingers in the process.

Apple has examined the watch and said the watch could not have caused the burns. There are no active electronics in the band.

Nevertheless, Mouitzen still believes the watch was responsible.

"There was nothing else around that could have heated the strap up other than the watch," he said.

Risky Move of The Day: McDonald's is Officially Killing The Dollar Menu

The Dollar Menu is dead.

It has been a slow death for the popular Dollar Menu at McDonald's. But a new menu called the "McPick 2," which allows customers to choose between a McDouble, a McChicken, small fries and mozzarella sticks for $2, is taking its place.

The company hopes this will bring customers back who have left since the death of the Dollar Menu.

From the AP:

Whether the McPick menu catches on remains to be seen.

In an attempt to wean customers off the Dollar Menu in 2012, McDonald's rolled out an "Extra Value Menu" that offered items for a range of prices. After that failed to take hold, the company turned to the "Dollar Menu & More," which channeled a proven name but may have confused people with its range of prices.

McDonald's isn't alone in struggling to get customers to let go of the $1 price. Wendy's tried replacing its 99-cent menu with a "Right Price Right Size" menu, but acknowledged the switch wasn't doing the job. Last month, it began promoting a limited-time "4 for $4" deal that includes a Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, chicken nuggets, fries and a drink.

Your McGangBang dreams are pretty much over, America.

We weep for you.

Fail of The Day: Store Pulls 'For Her' Pink Pencils After Online Backlash

Women need pink pencils. How else are they supposed to write down things like their grocery list and wedding plans? DUH.

That, obviously, sounds ridiculous. But that is the message one blogger thinks UK department store John Lewis was making with their pink "For Her" pencils.

After online backlash, the store told Mashable they would pull the pencils from shelves.

The pencils features sayings like "Girl Boss," "Glamorous" and "Buy The Shoes!"

Writer Hannah Dunleavy had some things to say about them:

Yes indeed, if you are heading to an important meeting, nothing says 'respect me' more than a pink pencil with the words Girl Boss on. I only hope no one makes the mistake of taking the 'Buy The Shoes!' pencil into a meeting and has to leave to go shopping. Can you imagine!

But seriously, women love shoes, don't they? And glitter and bling and smelling roses. It's a wonder we get anything done at all.

On the other hand, some women saw no problem at all with the pink pencils.

To each their own?

Someone is getting fired.

An Arizona man who didn't realize his local bank was closed on Veteran's Day arrived only to discover that someone left the doors unlocked.

Rey Lopez entered the bank and realized no one was around. He called out and got no response. - Columbia, South Carolina

"I was basically inside the bank and I had access to the computers, the desks, the registers, the furniture. Anybody could have gone in there and just helped themselves to whatever," Lopez told KPHO.

After snapping a selfie of his stranger encounter, he called police to get the place locked up.

Biggest missed opportunity ever.

This Craigslist ad sounds legit.

You might remember Romeo Rose from a few years ago. He's the guy who created a website called "Sleepless in Austin" where he promised to give someone $1,500 if they found him the woman of his dreams.

He has particular tastes, according to The Daily Dot.

Rose, real name Laramie Busby, is allegedly back again! And 2015 is a new era in his search for love.

A Craigslist ad claims he is creating a "kissing documentary" and will give you (young women of his choosing) $10,000 if selected to star alongside him. And presumably kiss him.

Now, this isn't verified. Could anyone have written this Craigslist post? Yes. Could Romeo Rose have written it? Yes.

Who knows? Respond and see if you are one of the ~lucky~ ladies.

Cleveland Cavaliers basketball player Kevin Love is the latest victim of Twitter's unfortunate crop.

The hoopster tweeted out a photo of his chocolate milk today and because of Twitter's uncanny ability to ruin every photo, it looked like he was holding a penis or phallic sex toy.

It also didn't help that he said he was "getting loose." If you know what he means.

He later changed the photo for a better version, but the Internet never forgets.
