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.

Re: 2012

I always though it was just all the people alive now, meh. It doesn't matter.

Sometimes I feel like strange voices are talking, it's indiscernible, but they are talking and it's kind of hostile, but not menacing.

I hope I'm not going into Schizophrenia(YAY! I SPELLED IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!). I think something may be leaking into my reality, or I'm just defected in the head.

Does this generally happen while you're half asleep in bed, or other times?

It happens anytime. Sometimes I'll go very long periods of time without it happening, sometimes every few days. I can remember it happening ever since I was little.

Re: 2012

On very rare occasions, I'll get a totally random word or phrase pop up in my head as if someone just said it to me. Usually English, though, but generally random and not really related to anything that's going on. I can't remember what any of them have ever said, though. I guess as long as it doesn't affect you in any negative ways (other than being a little weird), it's not something to worry about... I hope Razz

Re: 2012

to the idea of a human like AI taking over the planet:

The thing about robots and humans is that, unlike humans, robots don't program themselves according to their surroundings. Well, im pretty sure some might be able to, but their ability to is very limited.

Re: 2012

Probably Weswammy Wrote: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?


it's kinda' interesting actually. i have been thinking about this lately for the past few weeks.. and we've come closer to our theory..
i don't really think the world will explode or anything, but it will certainly go mad in some way. if you are familiar with the great disappointment, you might understand what i'm going to say next.. well, if you're not familiar with it, let me explain: it was predicted that jesus was going to come back on october 22, 1844, and that the faithful people would be taken up to heaven with him. as we can tell, he didn't come back. but there was some further studies done over that date, and it turns out that what october 22, 1844 really meant that jesus had moved from the holy place to the most holy place. it may sound like a pile of bullsh*t, but it seriously makes sense.

maybe, this is similar to that. maybe, something else is going to happen, like what you said. there are lots of movies made around the year 2012.. like i am legend.. and the postman.. i'd suggest you check them out, lot's of good theories come from those.

Re: 2012

The Mayans actually predicted that, "On the winter solstice of 2012, the noonday Sun exactly conjuncts the crossing point of the sun's ecliptic with the galactic plane, while also closely conjuncting the exact the center of the galaxy."

They also predict, basically, that a light flare with sync with the sun's light, and this will cause a chain reaction, ending up with the Earth's polars switched, and the sun being noticeably brighter.

This is just their prediction, however.

I, personally, believe that nothing at all will happen on December 21st, 2012. Nor any date relatively near it.

Re: 2012

I think something might happen, and not because of movies like "I am Legend"(although Will Smith is awesome). I mean there are so many prophecies that I don't even know all of them and a lot of them point toward or around that date in 2012.

And you know, if the poles switched anytime(and they actually have before) there would be great cataclysms like earthquakes and stuff, and electronics would fail. I'm sure nukes would fly too.

I figure nothing will happen on the 21st, and then we will all relax. Once we are relaxed some idiot is going to set something off on accident and wipe everybody off the face of the earth. :biggrin:

Re: 2012

Maybe, but other dead civilizations predicted it too. Some of them even around that date.

It's like how nearly every culture no matter how isolated has had stories of dragons for thousands of years, from Native Americans to Europeans. Makes you think doesn't it?

Re: 2012

Something's going to happen on or after December 21, 2012. The earth, Sun, and the Milky Way will be in perfect alignment. There's a giant black hole in the middle of the Milky Way.
What does that mean? The force of the black hole will affect the earth in some way. The most common theory is that the poles will rotate to the point that the southernmost tip of Alaska will be on the Equator. That will cause a mass global warming and global cooling. Species will die off because they will not be able to adapt to the new climate conditions. The food chain will slowly dissappear.

Luckily, by the time December 2012 comes, most of us will have already lost our virginity.
