True fact!!!

One way to check would be the following:
Dose it not contain q, j, or x?
Take sets of three letters in a row in the word, do all of them contain a symbol?
Can both ends of the word be constructed (no double letters other than s, e.g.)?

The vast majority of words that fulfill all three of those will work.

If one adds in fundamental particle symbols, then a few more possibilities appear: e (electron), t (top or truth quark), d (down quark), g (gluon), x, z, and w (bosons).

Another idea I have had is to turn all of the letters into units or unit prefixes, and generate a unit for the word by multiplying all of the letter units together.

Soylent Green is a classic dystopian sci-fi movie that came out in 1973. The world is reeling from a climate catastrophe. Nothing will grow due to – greenhouse gases!

(btw, Soylent Green is people)

It’s funny, I just got done watching a John Stossel vid talking about this!

Well he’s got me there! Next he’ll tell me that it doesn’t explain abiogenesis!

The periodic table just became my new password cypher :joy:

Edit:

I know the meme was a joke but I thought I’d do some checking since I was curious… it seems that a line of numbers for a password isn’t as strong - even if generated by chemical elements - as one might think and still can’t trump the best password generation method around → a memorable line from a favourite book.

For example, PHYSiCs produces 151391455, which looks like an impressive password but only scores a medium (3 hours to crack) on a password checker.

Whereas “In the beginning was the Word” doesn’t look that impressive a password as it has no numbers or symbols and only two uppercase letters. And yet, it scores Very High (66 million years to crack!) and has the benefit of being easier to remember.

All of this is academic to one degree, since, a password is only really as secure as the server that stores it. As this website will likely show you

The length of the password means much. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa is a better password than 151391455, as far as I have understood.

The problem with long passwords is that they are more difficult to remember. A memorable line helps in remembering the password. Otherwise, you need to write the password somewhere and keep the note close to the computer you use. It makes the life of hackers easier if they can visit your working place.

The security of the server is important but the laziness of human mind is the worst weakness. Who cares to write a 100-word long password? After few attempts accompanied with writing errors, you return to the normal passwords: the name of your pet, the birthday of your child or a string with a minimum number of numbers allowed. We humans are funny animals…
