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.

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.

Man so drunk he didn't know he was driving

Quote:A drink-driver more than five times the legal limit tooted his horn at a highway patrol then told stunned officers he didn't know he was driving a car, police say.

Victoria Police spokesman Sergeant Wayne Wilson said the Nunawading highway patrol car was parked in Whitehorse Road Box Hill about 8.25pm yesterday when a car went past.

"This was nothing unusual except police attention was drawn to the vehicle as the driver was tooting his horn and waving at police as he drove past," Sergeant Wilson said.

Police pulled over and breath tested the driver, who recorded a blood-alcohol reading of .278.

The man had his licence withdrawn immediately and will face court at a later date in relation to the matter.

"When asked why he was driving like that, the man told police he was unaware he was driving a car," Sergeant Wilson said.

Re: Man so drunk he didn't know he was driving

I've always wondered...what if a drunk person is so drunk that he doesn't know he is driving. It makes you think, do they deserve punishment?
