okay, there is a small mistake in the query :D

undirectedEdges AS (
SELECT person1, person2, CAST(SUM(cost) AS bigint) AS weight
FROM commentsByFriends
GROUP BY person1, person2

but the error raised is still unhelpful.. it should be `SELECT: cannot use non GROUP BY column 'cost' in query results without an aggregate function'
