Mea culpa!  You are (most obviously) correct.

I meant to say "no one passes a packet without getting paid",  
specifically in response to his passing the beer in the stadium analogy.

While it is true there are a few packets passed without payment, I'm  
pretty sure it's 0% of the total, to several decimal places.

Thank you for pointing out my error.
