Here's a tip I've been following for a long time: security questions and answers are a stupid place to tell the truth; don't even think about submitting valid information. Save your bogus answers the same way you save your passwords.

What's your mother's maiden name? mozambique
Favorite vacation spot? pepperoni
Best friend in high school? cadillac

Exactly! Patterns/predictability are the enemy of security. I just read an article where a security group tested a companies security by testing 14 passwords against all the employees accounts and had about a 20% success rate. People still using passwords like 1234567 or asdfghjkl, etc.
