    what do you think you would do to fill the time?

    I'm guessing I would write and study and get a degree in Law

      I would die trying to escape! There's no way I'd accept such a sentence even if I deserved it!

    As someone who has been in prison - I would say Art, poetry, writing, gym, Masters in Criminology, prison is hard time, dont worry about what you read in some of the tabloids about prison being easy, it aint easy, its real tough, sharing a 12ft by 8ft concrete tomb with another person, eating, toileting, washing and sleeping together 17 hours every day.......yep....assaults..rape.....people being stabbed.....people being murdered...yep it all happens.. still its made me a better person smile

    i'd write a book about it if it were me, and i'd study law too.  who knows maybe i might find a loop hole to get out of jail.  or i could just do what andy dufrane did in "Shawshank Redemption" and just carefully plan out an escape on the side, in case the warden screws me over.  lol.

    I would read...lots of reading!  I guess in some fashion that would be my escape from my surroundings.  Then I'm sure I would write about it in some form.  As you, I would most likely carry on with my education...

    I would shave my head (give the other inmates less to hold onto, if you know what I mean), pump iron, and study philosophy.

      yeah, that's a very good idea.  plus, i wouldn't shower at all if i could help it if i had to spend the rest of my life in prison.   this way, i can make myself very unattractive to the other inmates.

    1)Work out to get big and strong, so that I would not be subjected to any unwanted sexual advances or similar penetrations of my person

    2) Work on my appeal

    3) Watch all episodes of 'Prison Break' over and over and over again.
