What makes you think so?

I've asked many people on the forums and no one has given any sort of answer.  Seems to be more of an inside joke than an actual thing.

To post an actual hack I did.
In the last minute, I made a pair of hidden city tickets for someone to come from LA to NY and back again.

That time when I flashed my global entry card at an airport worker in KBP and he took me from the check in area almost to my gate...Skipping all the long lines.
Best use of an expired global entry card.
