Being comfortable with people may be a greater skill in the electronics field than having actual electronics knowledge.

Are servos fun to play with. Is it easy to code them to do anything I want like make robots that walk, lift, etc?

Servos are great fun and a massive pain in the neck if you don't have enough data to calculate the terms properly (servos in the broad sense aren't just mechanical motorised devices, they are used to control all sorts of things, here at work we use them to control current for example).
They are easy to code, there's plenty of examples available to browse.

Is it necessary to learn how hydraulic servos and gasoline powered engines work? Aren't they more powerful than electric servos and electric motors can ever be?

Did you know that an anagram of duragrip is "rip a drug"?

@Denis,
Lol

@duragrip,
I don't know whether mechanical servos are more powerful, electrical versions should be able to compete, and no, you don't need to know anything about them unless you want to be designing and/or building them or using them in a design. Also, power isn't everything
Having just said you don't ned to know anything about them, electronic control theory often starts with springs and weights since people can wrap their heads around what springs do, but not so much with wobbly voltages.

My work is important, so much so I'm inept with females. I do need some outlet. Is it okay to go to a bikini bar as an escape from work? Why do people say those places are bad? The only problem is, those places are so expensive. Is it worth it? Will the benefits I reap from going there recharge me mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and make me a better engineer?

YES, but ONLY if you go to these bars dressed in a jockstrap only

I asked my mom and sister if I could go to the bikini bar and spend some money on lap dances, and they got mad at me which I took as a 'no'. Why would they react like that?
