Possibly the best account security question of all time

Recently at work, I had to register for a secure email account to receive a document from a vendor. During the registration process, I had to choose a security question. The third option on this list made me literally laugh out loud at my desk.

This might be the first time in my life I have seen such existential angst in a password security system.

I couldn’t help but imagine the security system mumbling to itself passive-aggressively as I scrolled through the list:

What IS the point, really? Everyone knows you’re just going to forget whatever the answer was by the time you need it anyway. Might as well just forget about the email, quit your job, and go live in a cabin in the woods. SIGH. I should have become a medical records management system like my motherboard wanted.
