I started collecting online security questions about 10 years ago.

I was first drawn to them because even though they are basic questions about common human experiences, I found deep meaning in them if I allowed myself to remember past their one-word answers. I have since used these questions in conversations with friends and strangers, on road trips and in airplanes, and all the places in between.

I invite you to browse the questions and submit your own responses here.
