I can only see my bank's security questions as an old school meme.

What was the name of your first pet?
What is the last name of your first boyfriend or girlfriend?
Which sports team did you like most as a child?
What is the first name of your closest childhood friend?
What is your favorite fictional character?
Who is your favorite person from history?
What is the last name of your favorite teacher?
What is your hobby?
What is your favorite car?
Name the place you'd go to on your ideal vacation?
What is your favorite restaurant?
What was your favorite place from your childhood?
What is your favorite animal?
What is your favorite food or drink?

Dude, I'm totally going to write a story about an identity thief who gathers the information he needs by posting an internet meme.

Ah, we went to the SF museum in Seattle yesterday.

It was a bit like walking around in your nerd brain.

I say that as someone who could identify a majority of the movie props on display.

So! Jealous! They have a strong relationship with the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at KU, so I keep hearing about all the awesome things they do but have yet to actually see any of them.

I was awfully surprised by the number of books on display.

I was expecting all schlocky movie and tv stuff.

Also, my other bank uses image and phrase keys to help customers identify the authentic site against phishing sites.

But I do wonder what percentage of people understand what the teddy bear step is all about.

I seem to remember there was a case where people believed this was happening (a questions meme with entry blanks was hosted on a site which collected the data users entered, the site could use the LJ/myspace/etc cookie to identify the user), but I can't find any references to it.
