THIS IS NOT MINE, IT IS COPIED VERBATIM FROM :iconyapi: - I am just spreading the word.

Once in a while I browse around my watchers' accounts and today I came across a certain meme. At first it seemed like fun and I was considering doing it, but then bells began ringing. Halfway through doing the meme I realized that it indirectly asks you questions like "What is your first pet's name" and "What street did you grow up in" as well as the middle names of your parents, which are questions that are commonly used in password recovery.

So yeah, I felt that someone can easily hack my accounts by simply reading my answers to that meme. Just a couple weeks ago I was talking to Blizzard's customer service regarding my WoW account, and as verification they asked me the name of my first pet. Be careful of what memes you answer! Just a friendly word of warning :3

For those who are curious, this is the meme I was referring to:

1.YOUR PORN STAR NAME: (first pet & street you grew up on)
2.YOUR GANGSTA NAME: (fave ice cream flavor, favorite cookie)
3.YOUR "FLY Guy/Girl" NAME: (first initial of first name, first three letters of your last name)
4.YOUR SPY NAME: (favorite color, favorite animal)
5.YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you were born)
6.YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first)
7.SUPERHEROVILLAIN NAME: ("The" + 2nd favorite color, favorite drink)
8.NASCAR NAME: (the first names of your grandfathers)
9.STRIPPER NAME: (the name of your favorite perfume/cologne/scent, favorite candy)
10.WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (father's & mother's middle names)
11.TV WEATHER ANCHOR NAME: (Your 7th grade teacher's last name, a major city that starts with the same letter)
12.DETECTIVE NAME: (your favorite season/holiday, flower)
13.CARTOON NAME: (favorite fruit, article of clothing you're wearing right now + "ie" or "y")
14.HIPPIE NAME: (What you ate for breakfast, your favorite tree)
15.YOUR ROCKSTAR TOUR NAME: ("The" + Your fave hobby/craft, fave weather element + "Tour")

You might think "but my password has nothing to do with any of that stuff, so it's secure." WRONG. The meme doesn't help them guess your password; it lets them go into the password recovery section and answer the secret questions so they can reset your password without having to know it at all in the first place.

No problem. I'm not at all good at fighting games, but your art is spectacular enough I just had to favorite.
Would love to see your take on Cammy in her Bison-inspired alt costume from SSF4.

Oh!  Thanks again ^^ I have done one of Cammy in her Bison alt a while ago but it wasn't very good so I definitely will try that one again :D

Yup.  It's funny how that costume came about... Cammy White was originally cloned from Bison’s DNA to serve as a vessel for his soul when his original body degraded from overuse of Psycho Power - meaning, had events gone as planned, Bison was going to be a hot blonde chick.  So Cammy got that costume as a nod to her origins, despite the fact it confuses a lot of folks who think Cammy was just Bison's brainwashed lover or something.
Kinda makes you wonder about his underlings’ thought processes on getting that order, eh?

I will need a new body, for when this one decays.
Scientist: Yes sir. We can clone a new one for you.
Bison: Excellent, but I want it to be… pretty.
Scientist: …sir?…
Bison: With nice boobs, not too big, and great legs. And it must have long blonde hair that I can braid.
Scientist: Um, are you sure that’s what y—
Bison: You dare question my will?!
Scientist: N-no… no sir. You want, er, a female clone body… we’ll, uh, we’ll get right on that.

Hmm… does this technically make Cammy a transgender person, or not? Stupid confusing metaphysical cloning ethics…

Then again… hell, if it were actually possible, I would probably do the same damn thing, and I don’t even HAVE any supernatural-power-induced-degradation problems…
