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.

RE: Please share my video.

In regard to vid, it should be noted that nukes, despite being the most powerful weapons ever made for destruction, are also what have ushered an era of diplomacy, espionage, and proxy skirmish. Aka more peaceful. The more people that have nukes, less likely they are to A)take massive military action and B)use nukes.

Only terrorists would enjoy a nuke, but the degree of importance given to nuclear security makes it nearly impossible for a non-state actor to obtain their own nuke.

Even NK, who would have highest probability to use a nuke, would not rely on it for offensive ourposes in their strategic planning. Their range sucks, and theyd most likely not nuke SK if they intend to unify because then they'd have destroyed land they expect to take and also opened themselves to a very nasty international retaliation from which they'd never recover (like getting their country bombed to hell and flooded with soldiers, most likely through a multilateral action approved and organized by the UN).

Ironic...Peace thanks to WMDs. Perhaps peace is much closer to catastrophe than thought to be.

You do realize that nukes can be accidently launched. That happened several times during the cold war

Many of those near-launches were primarily technological glitches or result of improper nuclear security.

We've come a long way from slipshod nuclear security, and vacuum-tube giant computers.

Most nukes today are quite secure(sans the whole "airforce missile command crew lazy doing shitty job in silo threatening nuclear security"). After that whole North Carolina nearly getting turned into the Bay of North Carolina, US military realized nuclear bombs needed a lot more safety than 6 switches/failsafes.

Nuclear missiles are also not easily launched, requiring specific processes to actually arm and launch them(minus the whole Russian doomsday fail-deadly system known as Dead Hand, which when activated can determine whether Russia was hit by a nuclear strike based on a variety of sensors, then remotely activate and launch Russian ICBMs)

So while accidents did happen during the early stages of nuclear technology, by the end of the Cold War, most of the glitches and vulnerabilities were discovered and smoothed out. Through a very dangerous process of trial and error, 21st century nuclear security policy and practice was formed.

I'd suggest making new, high-quality, interesting videos if you plan to have YT be a source of income. Expecting one video to keep getting views isn't likely to work out very well.

Maybe start vlogging, for one thing. Make videos about what you know, about changing education, etc. If you make videos about changing education, learning beyond school, problems with school, facts about unschooling, etc. I can share them some places.
