I realized this when I was a kid and a few years ago on filesharing programs. I would download programs, games, music, ect and realized after downloading many many GB's of stuff that I didn't even want most of the stuff or need it.

I believe this selfish behavior is an addiction like gambling. Sure you get a momentary high but then you feel so let down after a short while your feeling empty. I think the pursuit is actually more fun than the reward.

BTW, great post.
