Security questions - the darker the better

found on Memebase

On the one hand, security questions are generally not very good because the information they're asking for is actually public info that anyone could easily guess or look up in order to gain access to your account through the forgotten password mechanism. On the other hand, some of these topics are so uncomfortable the argument could be made that the answers actually aren't well known.

Maybe the best security questions would be the ones that probe our insecurities, because those are the things we're least likely to share.
