    surprised that those are still the most popular ones, since a lot of services are moving to more complex password requirements.

    well, letthemin

    Mine is my mother's maiden name, broken down into numbers via a crypto-code
    + the average weight of bacon consumed per year converted back into letters
    - the transient value of a drop of rain hitting a metal roof, recorded at 48,000Hz
    + the letter d

    My password is password.

    We have a system at work that I have to login to about once a week. There's four of us who use it. If someone tried to login to it and cause problems, there's not really anything they can do. Yes, I login as "admin" and yes, the password is "admin". In my defense, I didn't set it up. But I'm not changing it either.

    I worked at one place where we were forced to change our passwords each week and there were all kinds of restrictions so you couldn't just for example use passw1 then change to passw2. So of course everyone started to just write their new one on a sticky and put it at the top of their screen.

    Got to maintain that security at all costs.
