How secure are security questions if several sites are using the same emergency security questions?

How many people could get your bank details, hotmail account or anything else with the combination of your email address and the answers to your emergency questions?

This site I just visited goes one step above scary and asks you to provide 5 separate questions with answers, anyone else seen these questions before?

My bank actually asks two of these five questions for me to approve transactions.

Anyone else starting to feel these secret questions are not so secret once every second site you visit on the net starts asking the same questions.
