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.

American Sniper

As far as I could see, no one has posted about this yet.

Im curious what pple think. I read that he said it was fun to kill people and called the Iraqis "savages".

Ironic how he was killed...

It just so happens I had been reading the Jefferson bible the same day I learned he was killed. And in it I was searching for terms like war and sword.

And I found this..

Then said Jesus unto
him, "Put up again thy sword into his
place: for all they that take the sword shall
perish with the sword."

Translated that means, put your sword back where it was because..
or in other words, those who live by the sword, die by it.

I'm an atheist btw, just in case anyone is scared of me quoting that!

American Sniper

Some claim it's anti-war, some claim it's pro-war.

I haven't watched it yet, but the feel I get from it is more like "You faggots never went to war and don't know shit. War sucks and we do some shitty things, but even a murderous warrior like me is not invinsibile or unique. Just like any other person, I'm as likely to die in meaningless ways the rest of you are"

It's like stating that war is only understood by those who experience it, but those fighting the war are just humans like the rest of us.

RE: American Sniper

Suing Chris Kyle's widow for 2 million was a dick move

Anyone who defends this movie obviously still believes the American propraganda

It was because the book said something about how Chris punched the guy (forgot his name) for some reason, he is suing Chris Kyle's widow for 2 million over it.

Even if you don't like Chris Kyle, you have to agree that you have to be a complete jack-off to sue a widow

I do have plans to see the movie however

You are aware that 2 polar opposites defend this movie?

Some American propaganda it be when the guy has the shittiest life despite being a decorated war hero.

RE: American Sniper

He intentionally doesn't take up a sophisticated position on the situation. He's only there to do his job, which is to kill terrorists because they're threatening Americans.

(I read the book.)

He seems to be having fun, though he shows some emotional attachment to the goings-on, such as refraining from shooting a child, and having some trouble upon his first kill.

Quote:you have to agree that you have to be a complete jack-off to sue a widow

Yeah this isn't "I'm going to sue his widow because I'm a dick", it's "I'm going to sue his estate [which can afford it] because there are some damages I'm legally entitled to".

It's not necessarily an anti-violent message. It could just as well mean the "place" of the sword is inside your opponent. Can also mean understanding that violence as your path can also mean your death, so don't expect any different and try to back out of what you signed up for.

"(Jesus) He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one." Luke 22:36 NIV.

Either that, or it's a contradiction. Shrug

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.
