human behavior is driven by the desire for power or sex

Nonsense. Most human beings are driven by a desire to protect their families

Wow, projecting much?
Sometimes the models of humanity we hold are the overgeneralization of our own reflection. When it's ourselves we are looking at we can fail to see the reality of the other.

Personally I think humans are driven by the need to get a +5 insightful or funny.

Also ironically I can't get this to install at all on my laptop. I've specifically disabled upgrading on the other machines in the house 'cus do.not.want. But I picked an older, mostly unused laptop and had a go at installing it on that for shits and giggles and because anything the MS is that crazy insistent about is worth sandboxing and disecting. The install failed and ended up reverting the Win7 OS to a pre-activated state. Twice.

I deleted my account and came back a year later with a new one. Obviously my list of friends and interests haven't substantially changed but, based on how hard it was to link back up with some friends, facebook doesn't seem to have tied the two accounts together. Which suprised me on the one hand but it's nice to know they haven't thought of or managed to impliment that feature yet.
It probably helps that I also have good security/privacy habits.
