“best of 94” sample 13-character passwords

Some researchers a Georgia Tech. recommened 12-character passwords as good enough for most people and most uses.  This is from the 95 printable ASCII characters. One of these 95 is Space or Space Bar, and there are suggestions that Space might be problematic on some systems for login. So, pesonally, I exclude Space, which leaves 94 non-space printable ASCII characters.  If we take the “Best”, easiest to remember, suggested 13-character password among a random list of 94 such passwords as “our” password, the amount of entropy or randomness is roughly the same as for a random, imposed, 12-character password.  I generated such a list of 94 sample passwords and came up with an easiest and a runner-up:

Easiest:

jKv.X”P!G”Mud

(notes: pigs like to wallow in mud; Pig in double-quotes.)

Runner-up:
