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.

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. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

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.

I tried lockpicking the door. I was able to get the first two pins set but I couldn't find anything thin and long enough to fit further into the cylinder. Breaking a window would piss my dad off.

RE: ITT: Post your first world problems

I got disconnected during a game of No More Room in Hell and even though I could've rejoined, suddenly I didn't feel like doing so and also because I'd have to wait awhile to respawn.

Hidden stuff:
TRIGGER WARNING: THIS TRIGGER WARNING CONTAINS TRIGGER WARNINGS!

Dear Tumblrites: Despite your wrongly self-diagnosed PTSD, no line of scientific evidence suggests people can be triggered over the internet. Triggering works through the senses (i.e. smell, taste, touch, vision, hearing.) but it goes through real time; if you're not experiencing it in real life as it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING in your ACTUAL life, you CANNOT be triggered. The only exception to this is if you have a seizure, but then again, that's triggered by epilepsy (i.e. rapidly-changing flashing lights) NOT PTSD. Remembering a bad incident is NOT the same thing as having a flashback. When you remember, you think; when you flashback, you feel.

But as we all know, those of us living in the first world also have equally or even more important problems that need to be addressed and solved.

And by "solved" I really mean complain and cry about it and show to other people in the hopes they may feel sorry for you. Because it will at least make us feel better. And that feeling is enough to keep us pushing on in this privileged, but also unforgiving first world.

TPB was recently DDoS'd so now it's down for the moment and I can't get my torrents!

I got System Shock 2 torrented but when I tried installing it, it didn't work on my Windows 7. So then I had to patch it and mod it but it still wouldn't work and now I feel down because I wasted so much time...

I have to walk 1/4 of a mile to get to the ice cream store I like with customizable 42 flavors soft serve and toppings plus other meals, but then I have to walk another 1/4 of a mile to get home! That's half a mile!

My DSL connection is too slow and I lag alot when playing vidya gaems on Steam.

I have to wait like 10 minutes after I fap before I can fap again. What gives, biology?

I tried torrenting Land of the Dead: Road to Fiddler's Green from FuCtUpPuNk on TPB via uTorrent, but it stopped and won't go through because of an I/O problem.

People aren't ever seeding on torrents! Come on, guys...! We're in this together...!

Is this sarcasm?

I was making some expensive espresso. I forgot to put the cap on my espresso machine, so all the steam from the water was just going out the machine (steam-powered machine)

I had to empty the water out and make it again.

Fuck this antibacterial war, I now might have a infection regarding resistant bacteria and I want to get myself checked out. Damn it. I rarely even use antibacterial soap because I do not trust them.

Hopefully, I can still be put under phage treatment if this is the case as that is now what I think it's the only solution.

ZZZ...

flossing doesnt help (don't quote me on that) whiten, you can get some mouthwash with ahttp://www.crest.com/crest-products/scope-white-mouthwash-mint.aspx with a certian acid % .08 or something that whitens teeth or you can use peroxide
