RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. My contact details are here.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

2012

So do you think the prophecies of the Mayans, and more obscurely: Nostradamus, will unfold?
Do you think it will be the end of the world?
A "New Age"?
Or is it some crazy mumbo jumbo?

Here's what I think will happen if anything happens at all(which is very unlikely):
A failure of technology caused by the switching of Earth's poles is due soon. The poles have switched before. Then nuclear war will be triggered.
And then people will be forced to live like savages, and that's if they take the preparation to survive the nukes and if they live in rural areas nobody will care about bombing, they'll only get affected by fallout.

So what do you guys think will happen?

I doubt nukes will be fired. It requires active detonation.

Re: 2012

I think its just another Y2K scare. However on the off hand I dont think it would be nuclear, Im thinking more of mass riots in which government dissolves. The world will be split into 'clans' so to speak, war will be waged on open ground and almost everyone is a combatant, I picture somthing like gone with the blastwave

That's really the only way it could: The poles switching.

not true, i dont remember where but I read somthing that said by then a $1000 computer would be able out compute the human mind. So tech could hypotheticly become self aware. A virus could be unleased.... tech is very falible

Something bad could happen with technology and bad things would happen.

Unless the whole thing is a bunch of crap, of course.

Nostradamus's predictions if true require way more things to happen before the end, such as the fall of the catholic church which doesn't seem likely within the next four years...

they were gone well before the spaniards. i think it was something more like "i'm looking into the future and OHSHIT mel gibson's gonna make a fucking twisted insane movie about us, we'd better gtfo cuz i don't wanna be around to deal with that."

on an unrelated tangent, we had to read the an article in spanish class about this. it was the stupidest thing ever; the only person in the room who cared about education less than the students was the teacher and nothing got done.

Re: 2012

I don't think that 2012 will be the end of the world, it would be the end of an era. Perhaps Capitalism will crumble, or the Church will dissolve. Hell, maybe Africa will unite and crush the west in a massive military invasion.


What I think is most likely, however, is that China will replace the United States as the new Superpower.

Re: 2012

They have the largest active military however they are running on outdated equipment. Russia has top of the line forces and from what I hear Have a constant strike force to invade them, despite both being communists at one point they NEVER got along

Re: 2012

Lol and Russia has just used up several Billions just to "Renovate" their military forces. I suppose the arm's race is still on between the super powers, as it will always be, but the western countries have gotten a really twisted way of looking at the russians, thx to mr. Bond. But we don't report how much the US uses on military advancement. Just a note.

About 2012: Now that it's approaching, new "how the world could go extinct" theories pop up every day. I'd probably just wait and see, there's not much we can do about it anyways. And if we tried we'd probably just subconciously make it our own extinction either way.

Anyways, gotta save the planet from Global Warming first Biggrin Let's get to it!

Re: 2012

I think that Russia is above China. They have up-to-date equipment, but most important they have more capable man to carry a war . (At least imo)

And yes, global warming is also a big problem. But I don't think we can stop this, because the industry is still evolving, and I don't think that someone can stop this, because money is into this, and stopping the industry will mean that rich people won't be rich anymore, and as you may now, rich people run things.

Re: 2012

It's possible, I suppose, but people have been trying to predict the end of the world for ages, and no one has been right so far. I doubt that 2012 will be any different...though I think it's more likely that the world would end than the entire human race becoming enlightened or something.
