1. It’s no wonder people are increasingly faking disabilities to cut airport lines, says The New York Times: Airlines are required to supply anyone claiming a disability with a free wheelchair (no proof required), and anyone who’s wheelchair-bound gets to board the plane first. The only hitch: People in wheelchairs must disembark last. Consequently, many fakers ignore the wheelchairs waiting for them once they arrive at their destination. Flight attendants drolly call the incidents “miracle flights” — since “they all needed a wheelchair getting on, but not getting off.”

    Only in America
