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.

Stay the hell away from Fiber One bars!

Seriously, these things must be made in the depths of hell by Satan himself. They taste pretty damn good, but god damn do they give you gas!

So here's the story: yesterday, my mom went to work in the morning, I was home alone, there wasn't much to eat. I could have made myself a sandwich, but I was just damn too lazy (considering it was a stressful week of school, yeah). So, instead, I decided to eat the Fiber One bars my mom bought. I heard these things gave you holy proportions of gas and diarrhea, but considering I have an iron stomach that could ingest most things, I was confident I could eat the Fiber One bars too.

I was wrong.

I ate five of them within a 20 minute range. Yes, I was freakin' hungry. Eventually, I started getting gas, but I really didn't care. I later ate dinner when my mom came home. And, a few hours (it was 10:00 PM roughly), I had to go to the bathroom, fast. I did, and what came out was diarrhea. I wondered what was it that I ate, and then I remembered the 5 Fiber One bars I had at midday.

Jesus Christ, those things are evil. I think I'll stay away from them.

Well last I checked, fiber has something to do with the system of excretions. I dont think all that fiber intake in a short period was wise.

Hmm, another item to put on the list of "things people don't learn in school," but that could be worth knowing.

Actually, it's not necessarily the fiber. See, the secret ingredient in the bars, as I found out, is chicory root. It's also used in laxatives.

So fiber + laxative=big shit?

One of my oldest threads. #throwbackhans #darkdays

Yeah, feel free to do it if you want 2 days of diarrhea. I actually haven't eaten Fiber Ones since December. Probably for the better.
