HHINNTB: The comic strip "Frank and Ernest" (which are the names of the characters). This comic strip pretty much focuses on lame puns like that.

If I go to the ATM machine and [think about another PIN when entering one with finger, the finger PIN has priority, hence : Body > Mind ?

It could be too that the mind is smart, and knows what is trying to prove, and hence let the PIN really entered (for example the right one), instead of the thought one ?

I actually have to strugle to think of my PIN, but I can effortlessly think of the pattern my fingers need to go in.

It's just that saying PIN Number is saying Personal Identification Number Number and ATM machine is Automated teller machine machine.

People keep saying "PIN Number", but that's just way longer than it needs to be. They should just abbreviate it as "PINN".
