You and your two roommates, Emily and Katie, have been planning an “epic” weekend since Monday afternoon. Friday night rolls around, and you all decide to pool your money to buy a $36 bottle of Grey Goose vodka. As you pull up to the liquor store, Emily and Katie both hand you $3, leaving you to foot the rest of the $30 bill. You weigh your options – are you better off just shutting up and paying so you can all get sloshed? Or should you tell them they owe you $10 if they want to drink? Surprisingly, this question finds itself at home in the net neutrality debate.
