It’s a brand new year. Introduce yourself. What are five things about you most people don’t know?

1. My street name is 2oL$IMf4@SGgOaC^q5XF
2. My dog's name is AuHBt4r&2s$n$gCN%9a
3. My mother's maiden name is nX1^L^PX0Kkj!Pz@aibH
4. My childhood best friend was Nf6nP$%9c@cRsTDoVY2B
5. My first car was a $Jvj9Q%XpUpv5WsAdGRF

Please don't try to argue with me about this. It's about the concept.

Those were good passwords until you posted them on social media. :)

I'm always secretly hoping this technique will fail on some website because the security question check will be multiple choice. Like:

What was your childhood street?
A: Main street
B: Parallel drive
C: 2oL$IMf4@SGgOaC^q5XF
D: Baker street

I'm really happy I haven't encountered this yet, because it's a shitty design for multiple reasons, but I wouldn't be _that_ surprised if this is actually already live somewhere.
