      kek I don't think I ever would've become a holocaust denier if it wasn't for that book. There was one part where he said they were given one piece of bread a day in the morning. He would save a crumb of it in his pocket to eat for dinner in the evening.

      I closed the book right then and stopped reading it, because no one who has worked a day in their life or ever been hungry would write something so stupid.

      I think if it wasn't for that I never would've taken holocaust denial seriously because, it was sort of the crack in the dam that eventually caused it to fail.

      I'm reading some of Jung's Aion right now. Next up is maybe Atlas Shrugged on the recommendation of a friend -- normally I'd have ignored it as high-school philosophy. But even high-school philosophy is still interesting. If you think you're above reading "basic" books, you're a much bigger fool than you estimate. That kind of arrogance is what got us into this mess.

      Jane Eyre is great. Man's Search for Meaning is an important work. I hope you find both to be enriching.
      I don't know what those other ones are.

          Don't listen to morons who tell you to do math. I'm a Math major, shit I learned is mostly useless. I would much rather had majored in CS.

          Do exactly what you want, don't detour because you need XYZ requirements. Rather go find and do exactly X, but you will find you need Y, and that Y needs Z, then you learn in that order taking peeks and jumps here and there while trying to build something.

        Absolutely Black personlicious advice that will only serve to waste your time. It's akin to homosexuals on IQfy directing you to start with the Greeks; it's simply a meme. Some value can come out of it if you're a Maths major, but it's entirely unnecessary if you don't need to be entirely familiar and intimate with Mathematics.

        i hate mathematics. i failed calculus 1. im still majoring in computer science. will i be a failure? is it over? i just dont get the point in math

        Quit your b***hing, get back up, and do it again. Failing Calc 1 is understandable since the concepts are fairly different compared to everything else you had been exposed to previously, but now that you've failed it once, you have a better general understanding of the topic as a whole. I don't even recommend books aimed at teaching the layman Mathematics, they're usually pretty as tbh. Just go through Stewarts or whatever latest edition of Calculus: Fundamentals of homosexualry is forced unto you by the publishing israelite. You did read the sections that were going to be covered before lecture RIGHT? Read through each section (whatever will be covered in the Calc 1 curriculum anyway), make note of whatever you don't understand, do the problem sets (CORRECT YOUR ANSWERS, YOU LAZY homosexual), and then go over whatever portion you were hung up on.

        [...]
        Don't listen to morons who tell you to do math. I'm a Math major, shit I learned is mostly useless. I would much rather had majored in CS.

        Don't listen to this guy, he's just trying to gate keep and derail your future. It's a little known secret that if you study Maths, your IQ skyrockets and you'll be able to move shit with your mind (5% success rate with a 4% margin of error).

    Yup, it ended before it even started. This homosexual saw one of the chart threads on IQfy and fell for the meme, didn't he? It's not the book that matters, it's being able to make full sense of it yourself and being able to solve a wide range of difficult problem sets--for Mathematics at least. This homie will either start with Polya, Velleman, or Stewarts--the former two or maybe Epp if he fell for that one chart--and stop reading less than a quarter of the way through. Either he's a clueless homosexual, attention-seeking homosexual, or a Dark-Academia-"polymath" homosexual. Only the first one is excusable.

            I'm saying you need to build up to that somehow. Like studying philosophy for a time already before you can get any value out of that book. Doesn't even have to be Chinese philosophy per se, but you need to be able to extract meaning from very brief, translated ancient text. Like you need to be halfway there already before it can impart any more insight onto you.

            Fricking poser.
            The Tao Te Ching is penetrating and obvious in its wisdom on levels that are accessible to those who are simply literate and capable of basic reflection.
            Yes, there is much deeper wisdom that many will only recognise after years of consideration, experience etc. It has a lot to teach even the most erudite, even after many readings and much reflection.
            That said, The Tao Te Ching is a fundamentally simple work with profound implications and in no way requires prior experience outside of basic literacy to be of benefit to the reader.
            If somebody is going to get into philosophy, The Tao Te Ching is probably one of the gentlest books to start with - it certainly does not need working up to.

            NTA, but it makes sense to me. There are equivalents to this in Western philosophy. In fact they go as far back as the beginnings of Ancient Greek philosophy with the Presocratic philosophers. The difference is that their explanations were less on the mystical, riddle-like, "clap with one hand" side of things.

It's just a waste of time to learn programming with a language that isn't used in the industry. Rather do Java, C++, C#... Hell, even Python or JavaScript.

            it's not about the language, it's about learning a different paradigm.
            SICP could be replaced for HtDP for all I care, but learning another imperative language will not teach you anything new about programming.

      There needs to be exercises and you need to do them. Reading/listening and understanding is completely different from being able to replicate/apply what you learned.

        >Audiobooks are the worst invention ever
        It's just listening to somebody speaking, which humans are designed to do. So abortion of information is efficient and effortless. When it comes to learning, audiobooks are literally a no brainer.

        Reading is artificial, first invented for merchant record keeping. It's inefficient when compared to listening to speech because of the extra layers of indirection the reader must go through, namely, first using sight to percieve the tiny symbols squiggled on a page, then using cognition to decode the symbols into language, then finally arriving at the concept. Whereas with speech the listener just perceives the sounds as concepts directly.

    it would take me months to complete reading even a single book from that pic and at the end of it I would forget everything. am I dumb?

      no you're just honest. for most topics just reading isn't enough for you to retain much and it's hard to be motivated to read something you have no use for or natural interest in.
      after I read "Anti-fragile" I started doing what Taleb does and if I'm bored reading a book and I'm about a quarter or more through, I just stop and don't even try finishing it.

      Pic sort of related.

    Reminder that just putting the words in front of your face is not study. You have to stop and think about it.
    These gays who "read 20 books a week" couldn't write a 3rd grade book report about them and won't even remember them a year later, that's not reading that's skimming.

    Read 1 book the whole summer and actually absorb it. And any book that isn't worth that much effort is secondary source garbage you don't need to read in the first place.

      All shit that you would learn in a few weeks of practical engineering. Reference books are just that. Made to be referenced when you are stuck on a truly hard problem, not for learning.

      That's the most moronic thing I've ever heard.
      If I had to bet, I'd say you understand neither but because you don't have to do practice problems with QFT you don't realize how little you actually understand.

    What is the purpose of "reading" a calculus book? Aren't they like 50% practice problems? I doubt this person is going to do the problems which makes reading the book pretty pointless no?

      Black folk like you wouldn't understand. If you actually want to learn math to a competent level you must slowly read and think, you must read a theorem many times until you understand the statement, then you must prove it before reading the proof the book gives you to check your reasoning. Then you do every problems to reinforce what you learned, and increase the speed about which you can reason with these concepts. The problems are generally the most trivial part. But modern schools have perverted this and students think that they can learn math from solving a few mechanical tasks.
      Of course depending on the book you may learn calculus in a more geometric fashion, which is not bad, as your intuition can easily be made rigorous, but it is not necessary, as calculus, linear algebra and programming are all that you need to solve every real problem in math, most math problems are fake problems questions about some arbitrary structure rather than equations and counting problems, sure these structures may be useful in that they allow a human to save some of his precious working memory, but computers have tons of the stuff SO USE THEM.

        I want to drop out of college because of this, my brain is sick of all of the fricking shit i need to digest without being able to prove and understanding a grasp of it. I keep getting passing grades and i am supposed to have "learnt" real analysis, linear algebra and group theory in less than 9 months but i can barely do anything other than the problems they give me. i really hate what school has done to my love for learning and i should kms

          It is crazy, 9 months is what it should take an average person to learn linear algebra, with reasonable hours (6 hours a day of intense thinking), add another subject if they want to no life (12 hours a day, losing sleep)
          In school real analysis and group theory really just become intro to "modern" math vocab and "modern" proof techniques, this is just a solution to another non-problem that being the reuse of others work. It's the same problem as in modern programming. Schools don't believe that students can create real solutions to real problems so they teach them how to reuse other solutions, manage bloat and spend their time solving fake problems

    Looking for a book that will help me better understand OSs, from sysadmin side. Pic related is the only one I found so far. Anyone has a recommendation?

    • 3 weeks ago

      You are misunderstanding, you don't want to understand OSes you want to understand how to best multiplex the hardware in your system, to do this you would need reference manuals on how all the hardware in your system works and then experience writing such a program, only then could you administrate such a system.
      I could only think as much as you would have to be insane to want to learn about the complete dumpster fire trash heap that are modern operating systems.

    why reading all of that if your not in college? i mean no one will learn how to project an electrical plant for a house just by reading electrical engineering book, you need lab hours to properly do it, just like nobody can become a doctor by reading human anatomy and/or biochemistry books
