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.

Paradoxes

My mind is fucked up a little.

Quote:You have invented a time machine and want to conduct a little experiment with your friend. You go back just a second in time to visit your friend and your "younger" self. Would your present friend see you eventually, despite that you only went a second back in time?

Quote:f you travel back in time and accidentally kill your grandfather, you would not exist in the present, and thus you'd be in a condition totally inappropriate for travelling; you'd be non-existent. But, if you don't exist, then you cannot kill your grandfather, so your grandfather would live his life well, until an ungrateful grandchild happened to kill him. Unless you also fuck your grandmother while in the past. But that's just wrong.

Quote:In 1850, Bob's horse was spooked by something, and almost took Bob over a cliff, had it not been for a strange man stopping the horse. This strange man was later honored by having a statue of him erected. Two hundred years later, Bob goes back in time to sight-see, and sees someone's horse about to go over a cliff. He rushes to his aid and saves his life.

Quote:You are intersex, and you are taken back in time and tricked into impregnating your younger, female self (before you underwent a sex change). Your younger self then gives birth to yourself, which an older you then kidnaps and drops off in an orphanage several years in the past in order to ensure your own existence, with the resulting consequence that you are your own mother, father, son, and daughter. You also realize that you seduced yourself and had a one-night stand with yourself, and you are therefore the world's sickest bastard.


Time travel is freaky. It would be interesting (and spooky) if we invented a way to do it.

If time travel existed there'd be some crazy shit going down.

The grandfather paradox is bullshit. If you kill him, you don't exist, but he's dead. End of story.

I can atleast tell that this is not possible. You cannot change your atanomy. Heavy surgery would be needed, I guess you can't survive that kind of treatment.
Also, I would file it under "masturbation", since i am literally fucking myself. Take this, all of you who said "go fuck yourself" to me! Oh, and I'd be stupid not using protection Wink

RE: Paradoxes

Time travel is really weird if you look at it. Paradoxes are the anti-virus programmes of the universe. If we invented time travel, i am pretty sure we would destroy the universe immediatly.

But if he's dead in the past before he has your father then that means you never existed, but then that means you never went back in time to kill him. So it's kind of fucked up...

I think traveling forward in time would be much easier, since theoretically to travel foward into time you need to travel faster then the speed of light. To travel backwards you have to open up and travel through a certain black hole, but you'll probably die instead.

Idk, fucked up shit. This shit probably won't be possible, it would be cool if it did, but if you think about it, if it did, the universe would be chaotic. Unless instead of living in the same univserse, you travelled back in time in a copy of the universe or creating a tangent universe at that point in time.

RE: Paradoxes

I just traveld forwards in time. True story.

But traveling into the past? It all depends on how you look at time, I wouldn't want it to happen though.

Again, I agree with you. School does teach you things. And once again, you are missing the point entirely. It's not that I disagree with school's mission or the things it teaches. What I object to is that the students are deprived of any choice in the matter. As benign as the intentions may be, any system that forces people into an environment where they have no say in their lives is a situation ripe for abuse of power.

RE: Paradoxes

The whole time thing can be explained by alternate universes. Every decison you make results in another universe In this universe you don't see your future self because your future self never went back in time. Or even simpler you see a yellow light do you A stop b try to beat it

A You stop and you see another car race through the intersection
B The racing car hits you as you try to beat the light you die.

It depends how you look at it. If you're going back in the same universe and timeline than yes, it does matter. But if you're not in the original, then it doesn't.
If he's dead in the original universe before he has you then you don't exist either. Otherwise it's not travelling back in time than is it?
