I read Bad Luck and Trouble by Lee Child last week and couldn’t help but be amused by the method the protagonist Jack Reacher uses to create a passcode.
I’d probably write out my birthday, month, day, year, and find the nearest prime number.
Actually that would be a problem, because there would be two equally close, one exactly seven less and one exactly seven more.
So I guess I’d use the square root instead, rounded to three decimal points. Ignore the decimal point, that would give me six numbers, all different.

Do you put such a lot of effort into creating passcodes? I have a method for passcode creation too, but it’s nothing so convoluted as Jack Reacher’s 🙂 .
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
