That does look suspicious, but not as suspicious as if you try to hide it.  Generally, you disclose it all and be prepared to answer questions.  I think trying to hide it carries more risk.

I haven't filled mine out yet. Is that how many years back they want you to go? 10 years?

I've had so many jobs in the past ten years I doubt I could remember them all.

Rule #1 - disclose
Rule #2 - see Rule #1

They may question it. If so, answer the questions honestly. That's about it.

As for how long they want, depends on the state.

Disclosure is always the rule here; there are very few things that will make you fail C&F (corporate fraud, etc) if you disclose them, but a lot of things end up being significant black marks if you DON'T disclose them.

You'll be fine.

I have several morbid obese kids at my school- how in the world will they pass the "fitness" part of the test?
