    I can vouch for its likelihood.  I have SE'd my way around NASA several
    times without my badge (which I often leave safely stored in my top
    dresser drawer when I leave for work).  The scariest SE I managed to pull
    was when I managed access into Space Flight Operations with no badge, no
    escort and no questions asked.  And no-one in the facility knew me from
    Adam.  All I had to do was walk around like I owned the place.  To them, I
    was just another mission specialist.  This was just before the Pathfinder
