A discussion I had yesterday with a Westport friend soon turned into a bet:
Is it better to keep a Netflix movie for an absurdly long time — say, 6 months — if you think you might watch it someday, or should you send it back because you probably won’t?
One side said: “How selfish can you be?”
The other side argued that keeping it is actually better, because it reduces shipping and sorting costs for Netflix, as well as all the energy it takes to transport each DVD back and forth.
“06880” readers: You be the judge. Payment for an actual movie is on the line. Though of course we’ll have to leave Westport to find one.
