You got: AnIdiotsLuggageCominbation:12345

You know how in "Spaceballs" where they ask the king the password to the planet's air supply, and it's 12345? Then Rick Moranis is like "that's an idiot's luggage combination", and then Mel Brooks is like "that's MY luggage combination!" Yeah, that. But this actually is a really strong password – it's got symbols, numbers, and capitals.
