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.

Pro-war word problems

i got this math packet with a bunch of word problems. heres one of those problems:


"A renegade dictator fires a scud missle at some American troops. Using satelite imaging, it is determined that the missle was fired from point (6,0), will hit he troops stationed at (2,0), and will travel along the path of y= -x2+8x-12. A patriot missle launcher, located at the origin, fires a missle toward the scud along the path y=x. At what point(s), if any, could the patriot missle intercept the scud missle and destroy it?

It's a perfectly applicable situation. I mean, patriot missiles are designed, or atleast a model of them, to destroy, SCUD missiles.

I don't think it counts as pro-war unless it implies that missiles ought to be fired, this just acknowledges that they can be fired, non?

wow, that's a lot less boring then the problems we get. they just give us shit like "joe threw a ball in the air, graph the path it took using these coordinates and this quadratic equation".

I think Buenaventura Durruti is a pretty cool guy. eh kills fascists and doesnt afraid of ruins.

when they ask what the answer is just say this and skip all that calculated interception points crap.

yeah but stingers are guided so you wound't need to do all that work finding out where a point and shoot missile would intercept it at a givern trajectory. and besides, i was joking. it's just a normal math problem.

Actually, you still need to figure out the firing coordinates, where the aircraft is, fuel consumption, etc. It's not just point and shoot.

that was the whole point. it was supposed to be a joke, just tell the teacher that instead of figuring out the math problem like you're supposed to, you decided to just use a heat seeker. you certainly killed the joke.

You don't even need paper to solve this. The scud missile travels only in quadrant IV, and the patriot missile can only be fired to quadrants I or III.
