Sometimes they perceive a better possibility on the far side of that  
"shortage", and being uncertain that a random walk (competitive

motives, and imperfect information will ever get them there -- and  
rather than risk the possibility of never making it across, they  
decide to embark on a collaborative, cooperative effort.
