If you had a door, would you share it or would you keep it to yourself?
Imagine you are floating far away from everyone and you are not on an inflatable lilo, but on a door. You are not warm, you are freezing cold, and you are with someone who is really important to you. Would you share the door or would you keep it to yourself?
