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.

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.

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.

Star Duelix, Several Years Later

Hello everyone,

If you were here a long time ago, you may have remembered me (Duelix). I had an interesting reputation on this site.

I tried logging into my old accounts, but they were all banned. I therefore created this new one.

Anyone want to see what growing up does to someone?

Ask me anything.

Many many things. I faked my own suicide, then faked my own friend who faked my own suicide.

I was also basement dwelled (many many years back) for controversial threads such as "niggers suck ass," etc. I was just a troll (a bored young kid).

I may read some novel at some point.

Education is a necessary evil, my friends. Changing the world requires specific knowledge, but one must willfully take it up the ass from society to prove that they possess this specific knowledge.

No one minds education here, of course. It's the compulsory schooling that turns us off.

College beats the compulsory k-12, but I'm not a big fan of the so called "General Education" thing being mandatory. The best reasons are mostly "better citizens" and "well-rounded person". My understanding is "Giving you the education you really should've learned in k-12".

Agreed.

My real dream was to become a Buddhist monk, but that shit ain't gonna happen.

Instead, I'm gonna spend my time cooking drugs, taking them, and writing experience reports.

I'm INTP by the Briggs Myers Type (nearly 100% in each catergory).

But upon further analysis, I realize that the MBTI is a pile of horseshit. I just happen to be described perfectly because I fall far to one side of the distribution in every category.

There are lots of ways to make it in the world... and there's more than one way to acquire knowledge. Demonstrating one's value to others is another step... and traditional credentials are just one way to do that of many.

Consider Joi Ito, now director of MIT's Media Lab, who never completed college.

Or Kio Stark, author of Don't Go Back to School: A Handbook for Learning Anything, "I’m a grad school dropout from Yale, author of the novel Follow Me Down (Red Lemonade, 2011), an advertising copywriter, and I teach at NYU’s graduate Interactive Telecommunications Program. Some of the things I’ve taught myself include how to develop and print photos, novel-writing, the psychology and neuroscience of delusions, and the history of art theft and forgery. I’ve developed courses at NYU on designing stranger interactions, on intimacy and technology, and on the illusion of authenticity in technology."

These are just some of many examples.

Why isn't becoming a Buddhist monk going to happen? And, why drugs, instead of a range of other ways to develop and influence your mind?

That's interesting, and something to dive deeper into. Which test(s) have you taken?

And, as Jung's theory explains, and several of us on your MBTI thread have explained, there's more to MBTI than just per-category distributions.

Regardless of the validity of MBTI, I wonder why you fall so far to the extremes. How would you describe it, in terms of the questions themselves, and how you find yourself responding?

And, what kind of results do you get on the Big 5, and what do you think about the questions and results there?

(12-28-2013 05:07 PM)Duelix3 Wrote:  Many many things. I faked my own suicide, then faked my own friend who faked my own suicide.

Why?

Hidden stuff:
"CONSENSUAL incest is not wrong. (Abuse victims: being abused by a relative does not make it wrong for others to have consensual incest, any more than rape by a stranger makes all sex wrong. Sex and assault/molestation are two different things.) An aversion became common in humans that aided in population growth as one disease couldn't wipe out the human race. That's not a problem anymore.

Consensual incest is very common. You know people who have been involved, whether you know it or not.

There is no rational reason for keeping laws or taboos against consensual
incest that is consistently applied to other relationships. Personal disgust or religion is only a reason why one person would not want to personally engage in what I call consanguinamory, not why someone else shouldn't do it. An adult should be free to share love, sex, residence, and marriage with ANY consenting adults. Youthful experimentation between close relatives close in age is not uncommon, and there are more people than you'd think out there who are in lifelong healthy, happy relationships with a close relative. It isn't for everyone, but we're not all going to want to have each others' love lives, now are we? If someone thinks YOUR love life is disgusting, should you be thrown in prison?

Some people try to justify their prejudice against consanguineous sex and
marriage by being part-time eugenicists and saying that such relationships inevitably lead to “mutant” or “deformed” babies. This argument can be refuted on several fronts. 1. Some consanguineous relationships involve only people of the same gender. 2. Not all mixed-gender relationships birth biological children. 3. Most births to consanguineous parents do not produce children with significant birth defects or other genetic problems; while births to other parents do sometimes have birth defects. 4. We don’t prevent other people from marrying or deny them their reproductive rights based on increased odds of passing along a genetic problem or inherited disease. It is true that in general, children born to consanguineous parents have an increased chance of these problems than those born to nonconsanguineous parents, but the odds are still minimal. Unless someone is willing to deny reproductive rights and medical privacy to others and force everyone to take genetic tests and bar carriers and the congenitally disabled and women over 35 from having children, then equal protection principles prevent this from being a justification to bar this freedom of association and freedom to marry.

Some say "Your sibling should not be your lover." That is not a reason. It begs the question. Many people have many relationships that have more than one aspect. Some women say their sister is their best friend. Why can’t their sister be a wife, too?

Some say “There is a power differential.” This applies least of all to siblings or cousins who are close in age, but even where the power differential exists, it is not a justification for denying this freedom to sex or to marry. There is a power differential in just about any relationship, sometimes an enormous power differential. To question if consent is truly possible in these cases is insulting and demeaning.

Some say “There are so many people outside of your family." There are plenty of people within one’s own race, too, but that is no reason to ban interracial marriage. So, this isn't a good reason either. Let consenting adults love each other the way they want!"-Keith Pullman
