What to read in jail? About to have ~12 hours a day for a couple of months to read/study. Preference to "educational" works.

This is the second such thread today. Are all of you homosexuals criminals? I'd rather not socialize with you all then.
To answer your question. Mathematics. You cannot go wrong with it, if you've finished high school, get books on Calculus, Linear Algebra and Statistics.
I am going to jail so I don't become homeless. Why would I learn mathematics instead of something useful like a 4th language, philosophy, history, scientific works?
if you're trying to not be homeless, shouldn't you learn something more useful than a fourth language?
He could work as a translator.. it might not pay much but it would probably be enough to get him off the street.
sure but bro already knows three languages. if he's not working as a translator now, it's probably not going to happen.
If you want to learn science this is the basic shit you need to know. Idk why history or philosphy is more useful than this. 4th language could be useful. If you learn this well and learn basic progamming once you're out you can basically become a developer of some sort and then learn on the job.
Because everything is mathematic, including language, science, and history.
Get coding books and learn to code. You're more likely to get a job with that than with philosophy.
i signed up for udemy's web development boot camp but have been putting it off. is something like that enough to get a job or do i need to supplement the course with coding books?
Whatever it takes for you to know how to program. Once you can code you can get a job.
Being an convict is going to disqualify you from most of the jobs though, no one is going to want a criminal to have access to their code or data.
i should have said i'm not the convict. just someone looking to rise above minimum wage cuckery.
My company hires people out of boot camp at 70k starting if you actually know how to program and possess basic social skills.
alas i do not possess basic social skills. rip me. but i guess it still wouldn't hurt to try, especially since i already bought the course.
You can fake them.
Read Persuasion by Cialdini, Seduction by Greene and any NLP book by Bandler and Grinder.

Unironically study NDEs and realize that there actually is an afterlife and that we are eternal and will go to heaven unconditionally when we die. And that life is like a video game or a simulation and you actually chose to come here. And that the meaning of life is to learn to love and be kind and thrive here despite how hard it is in this world. It will also give you a solid spiritual outlook on life. And if you get internet there, then YouTube is filled with NDErs and their testimonies.
Here is a very persuasive argument for why NDEs are real:
It emphasizes that NDErs are representative of the population as a whole, and when people go deep into the NDE, they all become convinced. As this article points out:
>"Among those with the deepest experiences 100 percent came away agreeing with the statement, "An afterlife definitely exists"."
Since NDErs are representative of the population as a whole, and they are all convinced, then 100% of the population become convinced that there is an afterlife when they have a sufficiently deep NDE themselves. When you dream and wake up, you instantly realize that life is more real than your dreams. When you have an NDE, the same thing is happening, but on a higher level, as you immediately realize that life is the deep dream and the NDE world is the undeniably real world by comparison.
Or as one person quoted in pic related summarized their NDE:
>"As my soul left my body, I found myself floating in a swirling ocean of multi-colored light. At the end, I could see and feel an even brighter light pulling me toward it, and as it shined on me, I felt indescribable happiness. I remembered everything about eternity - knowing, that we had always existed, and that all of us are family. Then old friends and loved ones surrounded me, and I knew without a doubt I was home, and that I was so loved."
Needless to say, even ultraskeptical neuroscientists are convinced by really deep NDEs.

Reddit is waiting.
did you do something which is evil by biblical standards, or evil by American standards?
I live in a germanic country so all books within reason are allowed (no mein Kampf, etc.)
Why learn STEM related things when I need to get a degree to have a job in that field anyway, my highschool degree doesn't even allow me to apply for a STEM bachelor also.
A degree is a must in my country for a programming job so coding is out of the question.
Most of my knowledge and experience is in the humanities so I figure that what will be the most useful field for me to study.
If you live in a Germanic country with comfy jails, don't you also live in a Germanic country with comfy welfare state? Why jail if you could be on neetbux in social housing?
You need to tell us what prison, as each prison has its own permitted and prohibited texts. They do not just allow any book. Also, you should much more time getting LULZ than trying to read the permitted schlock.

"The Name of the Rose" depicts a society in the 14th century where knowledge was primarily preserved and disseminated through books, which were housed in monastic libraries. These libraries were highly guarded and only accessible to a privileged few who were educated enough to read and interpret their contents. In the novel, the library at the Benedictine abbey is a symbol of the power of knowledge, and its contents are closely guarded by the monks who serve as the gatekeepers of information.
Today, with the advent of the internet, we have access to a vast amount of information at our fingertips. The internet has changed the way we access, consume, and share knowledge. Just like the library in "The Name of the Rose," the internet is a repository of knowledge that serves as a democratizing force, giving everyone access to information regardless of their socioeconomic status or level of education.
However, just like the monks in the novel who guarded the knowledge in the library, we also have gatekeepers on the internet who control what information we have access to. Search engines, social media platforms, and other websites use algorithms to determine what information is presented to us, based on our browsing history and other factors. This has led to concerns about filter bubbles and echo chambers, where people only see information that confirms their existing beliefs and are shielded from opposing viewpoints.
In summary, while the functions of the library in "The Name of the Rose" and the internet today are different, both serve as repositories of knowledge and information. Both are also subject to gatekeeping, whether it be by the monks in the novel or algorithms on the internet, which can influence what information is disseminated and who has access to it.
