I'm disappointed that "chocolate" is so low.

Old car registrations make neat passwords, if you happen to have the kind of mind which remembers that kind of thing. Unlikely to be shared by anyone else on the list at all...

(This reminds me of an old 'Viz' reader's letter. 'My wife and I have been considering the purchase of a touring caravan, but have been struggling to find one suitable for our car. If anyone has a caravan with registration F174MBA, we would be delighted to hear from you.').
 
I found an admin account on a server called password, the IT director wasn't surprised when I told him


Just surprised p455w02d isn't near the top

Or part of them make great PIN for your cashpoint card. ;)

Allegedly the inventor of cashpoint card was an ex officer who wanted the PIN to be 6digits as per his army number but his wife told him that 4 would be enough for the average person to remember

It is six digits in other parts of the world

So an officer is above average because they can remember a six digit number.
I must be above an officer because I can recall my eight digit number.
 
Needless to say, service numbers with initials are very good passwords.
Yeah, it meant I could always get on my late brother-in-law's WiFi. Years of writing to my sister in the distant past with his service number in the address, meant I knew it by heart.

That confirms my thinking. This Country is populated by an incredible number of thick twats!
