It doesn't make any sense for security questions on websites to be things like "your favorite color" or "your best friend's name" because those aren't stagnant answers and could change at anytime, amirite?

Security questions such as "in what city were you born" and "your first pet's name" are much better because they will never change, therefore it's much easier to remember should you ever need to reset your password using security questions.

Seriously I just got locked out of the national student loans login because I couldn't remember my questions...

Different nation i'm assuming, I gotta call them.

As long as you remember the answers it doesn't matter. I try to stay consistent no matter how my thoughts might have changed.

Best option, custom questions, things only you would know, something that someone wouldn't figure out. What's your favorite Naruto battle or something

That's why I just use .... Password123.

Easy to remember.

It's safer just to answer the questions "What was your mother's maiden name, or What city were you born in"?

Or it’s just plain awkward:
“What’s your best friend’s name?”
“Uh.... I don’t have a best friend...”
