Question description

You and your roommate, Harold, are very hungry and are thinking about going out to dinner. Harold will drive and gets to choose where to go. He prefers White Castle, but you prefer Taco Bell because White Castle makes you sick and you would rather not eat than go to White Castle. If you wait for one hour, Taco Bell will deliver a meal to your house. Harold cannot go to dinner without you because he does not know how to get to either restaurant, so he promises that if you agree to go out now, he will choose Taco Bell. If you are both purely self-interested, what should you do?
