Apparently you don't know what happened in the Arabic world back in the 1100s. They were amazing with math and science. Leaders of the world in that matter. Then came a long Al Ghazali and turned all of that on its head. Now look at the Arabic world. Still looks like they live in the 12th century.

This is what i was wondering. I have several TB of movies and about 10GB of music that is all stored on a custom built NAS in a 4u rack mount case. Storage my friend...anyway, this is what I(and my roommates) stream most of our movies/music from in the house. Other times, only for movies and music we don't yet have we use Pandora, Spotify, Netflix or Hulu. If it's only what comes from the ISP/Internet side then that's about 20%...if you want to count what is streamed internally as well, it's about 90%.

I'll add to this since I am an introvert, but I also have Claustrophobia and Anthropophobia on a more mild level. It doesn't keep me locked up in a house like Agoraphobia.
A) I do need money so I have a job where I go into an office and play around on networks all day and have very little interaction with my coworkers face to face. We use MS Lync, mostly, to communicate. Its use makes it VERY easy for me to talk to people.
B) Who needs a mate? opposite sex is nothing, but a problem. However, I've realized that I am more of the problem in a relationship so I stay away rather than get my heart ripped out every couple years.
C) If I need to go to the store to shop for food then I usually work up the courage and go late at night when the crowds are minimal OR I go with one of my roommates and they pretty much act as a 'handler' or distraction to everything else that is going on. That way the crowds of people at the store aren't so bad. For clothing and most everything else I need I can buy online and have delivered right to my door.

Also I'd like to know what survey you did that paid you 50$. The last time I took a survey was about a decade ago and they were only going to pay me 3$. I asked for 5$ so I could actually buy lunch and they walked away. Cheap bastards! Last time I remember getting 50$ for other than an hour worth of work was when I donated plasma. Twice a week and get 30$ for the first visit and 20$ for the second visit.

"people type fast-and-furiously on smartphones and tablets, so you know it can be done, but how exactly do these one- and two-fingered wonders (YouTube video) manage to do so?"

And my mom said playing video games wouldn't amount to anything. Look how fast I can type on my phone now thumbs are flying
