Facebook Security

Using facebook on Jennifer's Dad's Laptop connected by my phone acting as a wifi hotspot (my phone can charge this way) on 3g in Portugal. I was confronted by facebook saying my account had been suspended to unlock it i had a choice of using a security question or this novel way I chose which was to identify my friends which was quite fun. I've included a screenshot and below the information that facebook emailed me. I thought that was quite cool.
