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.

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.

Quick question

I have a hamster, and I like to keep my window open at night, and it can get kinda cold. I put a blanket over the top, and left a little bit open for air. It can get down to 60 degrees at night, but my hamster has a little igloo it sleeps in, and burrows in it's bedding. Plus it's really furry, could my window being open kill her? I already killed my gecko due to heat issues... *sadface* But that's a reptile, mammals are typically different.

Re: Quick question

A hamster is fit to survive in such climate naturally. It'll be fine.

Problem, officer?

If it does seem a bit too cold to the hamster and you have observed that the behaviors of the hamster is different than normal when the temperature is that low, then it's probably cold for the hamster even though she can handle it to a extent. I suggest experimenting at a safe level to find out. Keep it at room temperature for now.

If the fucking hamster is such a pussy it can't stand an open window, it deserves to die.

Re: Quick question

This is entirely dependent on what kind of hamster you have. If you have a "golden hamster" which are normally the ones you buy then here:

some PDF Wrote:Hypothermia. Golden hamsters are very sensitive to cold and may become unconscious at temperatures in the mid-60s or lower. Their breathing is very shallow and they
often appear dead, but may slowly revive when warmed in one’s hand. Avoid air tem-
peratures below 70 degrees in the room where your hamster lives, and keep the cage
away from cool areas, such as windows. Provide warm bedding, such as recycled paper
or tissue paper, for your pet to nest in; a small nest box also helps conserve body heat
when the hamster is sleeping.

Anyways, you can read about this shit in this PDF:

Ironicly enough Im actually a Nazi. Seig Heil and all that good shit and as of a month ago a member of the American Nazi party, so that shit doesnt work on me.

However right now you are pressing my buttons. This could be extreamly detrimental to your health.

There's another site which shows that hamster can go into 60 Fahrenheit. That's why I suggested experimenting to find out which is appropriate for the hamster and yes it depends on the hamster.

Re: Quick question

Ironically, I got yelled at last night for having my window open, as it apparently heated up the whole house. They were like BAWW HUMIDITY

It wasn't humid at all last night.

Re: Quick question

How many people did you exactly get yelled by? It's possible that they are in the right position in the sense of being over 50 percent humid. No arguments with you, just a suggestion.

My mom and dad. But it wasn't humid at all, and I was freezing my ass off. The temperature last night was ten degrees lower than the air conditioner was set to.

Re: Quick question

Some say that the diet they take, the food they take, and their body situations affects how long they can withstand at each different temperature. I think this has to be looked into.

But it's mostly that they're lying to you.
