    Rules of conversation are, as ever, as follows:

    1. Spam: We are glad to see you enjoy this place but please don't crowd it with one word reply or *actions like this*. A quick reply may feel nice, but a quality post is friendlier.

    2. It's good that you enjoy the Play by Post forum, the Silly Message Board Games or other places around here, but good friends know to keep things that don't mix separate. So please, avoid continuous roleplay or battles for "taking control of the universe" (who would want that?) even if they are a ton of fun.

    3. In fact, if it's already a thread don't bring it to Random Banter unless it's off-topic for that thread but not enough to be its own thread and on-topic for Random Banter. That wouldn't be nice for the people talking in that thread.

    4. We are all glad you enjoy other threads but please don't advertise them in Random Banter.

    5. It's nice to know you are back but don't just post to broadcast your status as in: "I'm back." Tell us more, we all like a story.

    6. Don't post just to get the thread moving faster, or say something we all know like "the thread is moving fast today." It moves when someone feels like saying something. We're not in a rush.

    7. Friends are good fun together, but there's no worse buzzkill than someone demanding to be entertained. If you want this thread to be funny, make a joke!

    8. If you're not sure what we are talking about, you can just read a few posts up to find out. We all love answering questions but making people explain or repeat themselves isn't appreciated.

    9. The thread creator has to include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread # in the title. It would also be nice to be concise.

    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences with Subject and Predicate. But don't stress too much over grammar, as long as you try to be understandable I am sure your old English teacher would be proud.

    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a nice back and forth with one friend (and who wouldn't?), you can find the necessary IM details in their contact information.

    12. The administrators will delete all "first post" and "first page" and other such posts. They don't enjoy doing this, so be good friends and don't make them.

    13. We are all friends here. Except for double-posting; they are not nice at all. The edit button, however, is a very reliable friend.

    14. Once you have made a Random Banter thread, you must let fifty other posters have their turn befor you can go again. Isn't it nicer when everyone can have fun?

    15. Please don't call dibs on the next thread. It would be mean to your friends to make them wait if the thread hits fifty pages while you are asleep.

    Ah, a fresh thread smell.

    Speaking of smells, it has been raining for two days straight up here, and it smells WONDERFUL. I love the pristine scent of fresh rain.

    Ah, been waiting for this. And, yes, the fresh spring smell after a rain is super nice. I'm not a fan of the actual weather, though. Give me all the sun. I am a sunflower girl.

    I was recently reminded of something that happened to me in high school, forgive me the rant.

    Two years in a row, I signed up for a class called Current Health issues(at the time I was hoping to go into Phramecology in college, and the course description made it sound like it was an Easy A, so two birds-one stone) and both years I was instead assigned to a class with a very confusing name that turned out to be a class about treating sports injuries--what to do if you suspect someone has a concussion or how to bind a sprain, that kind of thing, which are actually useful skills. Apparently, no one ever signs up for Current Health issues, so they automatically transfer anyone who signs up for it to another health class. (...Yeah.)

    The first time, after a brief kerfuffle was a teacher I'd had previously saw that I was in the class and tried to have me transferred into something else while only saying that I wouldn't like the class but not saying why, which caused me to have a minor panic attack, I ended up rolling with it.

    And I did well in it. Those are useful, practical skills and information that's important to know, most of the class was based on how well you can use the skills they teach you(we never even had a test) but... Over fifty percent of your grade was the final. You had to do an instructional video on how to treat a sprained ankle(and ou were allowed to be creative with it. He showed us an example of two people acting out as though they were Jedi who got injured in training.)

    So me and the guy I'm partnered with decide on a theme, work out a basic script... We have a free period together every other school day and half a semester to get it together so plenty of time to get together and film, I sit in makeup for half an hour getting my ankle made up to look like a bad sprain... Dude never brings in his camera to film.

    On the day we present the videos, the teacher calls on me, I have to tell him that my partner never brought in his camera, he tells me okay, sorry, but I fail, which means I fail the class... Then a few presentations later he calls my partner by name. He made a video with someone who wasn't even in the class.

    So I failed becuase the other guy stabbed me in the back while he gets a fair grade.

    I immediately transferred out when I was put int he class a second time.

    That was over a decade ago but I still wish I'd blown up and made a scene about it instead of quietly seething over it.

    That is absolutely disgusting Ratar, and I hope everyone responsible for this got what they deserved. Because you did everything right and the only reason things went wrong is because everyone else ****ed you.

    Oh, I'm still nursing wounds from a decade and a half ago. Maybe? I'm still pissed off that I couldn't get a major part in any school plays because a) speech impediment and b) they were all musicals until like my GCSE years. Thankfully the few times I did plays outside of school I got better parts. But yep, absolutely disgusting, and I say that as somebody who did try to screw people over a couple of tines *(and had groups bully me into letting other people steal my work because it's not like I built the robot's body and did 90% of the programming, I gave you one programming job to do and instead of doing it you messed up my carefully calibrated program).

    I should really get back into am dram.


    Also, why are YouTube doing fifty minute adverts now. And if it's not bad enough, guess what the one I got was on?
    Spoiler: Like seriously, I'd have taken an unskippable Nintendo Direct over this, it's creepy and insulting to everybody except Larry
    Show
    It's basically the creepiest and most sexist 'hey [removed] here's how to sleep with all the hot womens' video ever. I got about fifteen minutes in out of sheer morbid curiosity, and wanting to see how it thinks all women are the same, and then it started going on about erotica and Fifty Shades and stuff that made less sense the more I drank. I stopped because it essentially began to insult my personality and sell this story of 'the only thing that matters is [blank], except instead of looks it's whatever this person is selling.

    Like, I don't watch YouTube videos to be get unsolicited advice on how to meet attractive people, it might take me years but I can meet people who think I'm worthwhile! And if I wanted bad dating advice I'd just go and play that set of terrible FMV games.

    crap like that happened a lot.

    Becuase I was a "special needs" student, I was required to take a course that amounted to a study hall(except I still got credit for it.) It wasn't a "special" class, it was just a class for people who might need extra time or a bit of help doing their homework, there were "normal" people too.

    I take it my first year of highschool, they tell me that I only needed to take it the one year... the Second year of high school, instead of signing me up for Spanish 2 like I asked(you need three total years of foreign language to graduate where I went) they put me back in the same class again(on both days, instead of just every other day like the first semester) and refused to change it.

    When I already had a study hall.

    Naturally, not going into Spanish 2 immediately after Spanish 1 screwed me over hard. (luckily, retaking it counted as my third year.)

    I had to threaten people to not be put back into that course a third time. I barely graduated as it was becuase of being put in classes I didn't sign up for that didn't cont for credits I needed for bullcrap reasons.

    Here's another one: In middle school, for reasons I am not aware of, I was made to take Pre-Algebra even though my test scores in mathematics were high enough to skip and take full algebra(which would have meant that I wouldn't have had to take it in high school.)

    The way the class was taught caused some problems, however, so my grade wasn't as high as it should have been. To her credit, the teacher admitted that it was a problem with the materials she was provided with and the way the school was making her teach it, and put a note in the file saying that my grade was lower than it should have been and that I was more than qualified to take algebra.

    They ignored the note and put me in pre-algebra/algebra, which ate up two slots but only counted for one credit. They also screwed it up and had me with different teachers on each day, which I had to give up an elective to fix(I could have kept my elective if I'd been willing to stay in the other class but I'd been sitting right next to a delinquent who I'd known to be a bully... In hindsight, however.)

    The teacher acted nice but she was a real bitch beneath h the surface. One time she gave me detention becuase someone else called me "retarded" in relation to my autism.(Mother complained about me getting detention for getting upset when the girl who did it got off scot-free and I was not required to go to that detention.) She would also find any reason at all to take points off.

    Not only a "you have to show all of your work" type but also a "you have to do it exactly the way the book tells you even if the other way is just as accurate and also gets you correct answers and you have to have the exact decimalization that's in the answer key and if the way you showed your work isn't the same as the way I taught you, even if you did all of the exact same steps, then it's wrong" type.

    She also made fun of me for getting upset at people singing the theme song to a show for toddlers specifically to annoy me and disrupt my concentration.

    So, becuase of her ridiculously strict grading policies, my grade is once again much lower than it should have been, so when we're signing up the next year's courses I am told that I need to sign up for a different geometry class, one that spends a bit of extra time going over the basic equations that you use in geometry, becuase people who didn't do well n algebra sometimes had trouble in the normal Geometry class, and I'm not in a position to a context that so I do it.

    they explicitly said that it counted as Geometry in terms of credits when I signed up for it. It was not until I was trying to sign up for my classes at the end of the next year after passing the alternative course that I am told that I was lied too and that I will have to take the regular geometry course to get the required credit, meaning I had to waste a year learning the same crap all over again three years in a row!

    I also had to take health class twice because the first teacher didn't tell us that he was grading us on how thorough our note-taking was until after the note checks and didn't tell us it was half our grade at all. There wasn't a single thing we learned in High School health that hadn't been covered in the last three years of middle school health so I did not take care of my note-taking.

    You ever ace every assignment and still fail the class? I did!

    (The second guy fully admitted that the class didn't cover anything we didn't already know and said if we remembered it we didn't need to take notes becuase notes are for our benefit)

    Then in senior year I almost failed everything my second semester because I missed a week and a half due to being hospitalized with a blood clot.

    I kind of want to know what happened to get my college application accepted because my highschool transcript have got to look like someone who gives no craps about academia.
    I also answer to Bookmark and Shadow Claw.

    Rater I say with 100% surety and purpose that I want to burn down your school. This is agonizing to read and makes me SO ****ing mad on your behalf.

    Your college application was likely accepted because the person in charge of the college isn't a foot eating buffoon who saw the utter MESS you went through and realized, correctly, that you're very smart and deserving of this despite what it might say on transcripts. Transcripts are irrelevant as they were written by nimrods too blind to see past their own eyelids.

    I feel blessed to have had a school that both understand what I was going through and was full of people easily endeared towards me because I was likely on track for some of the garbage you went through, and I was able to strongarm those who needed it, and I wish you could have had that same opportunity.

    Well, the American school system confuses me (seriously, nothing here counts until you're like 14, because you can take whatever GCSEs you want, except maybe your school using Year 9 SATs to determine Foundation and Advanced English/Maths/Science classes). Also managed to get out of the special autism classes after a year due to the teachers arguing it was impacting my performance and I'm deceptively high functioning.

    Unfortunately family expectations and autism stereotypes meant that everybody pushed me towards science related subjects except my GCSE English teacher, when what I actually wanted to do was English/Drama. As much as I love engineering, I still wish I could have done a literary criticism degree (although unlikely, as I'd already been pushed towards maths-focused A-levels, because Autism+maths family).

    And guess how employable that science degree turned out to be? Yeah, maybe I should have been able to do a degree that wasn't marked >90% on it's exams, when I just don't exam well.

    My laptop keeps claiming that our LAN doesn't connect to the Internet, even though my dad is currently using the Internet with no problem from a desktop wired in via the same network.

    To clarify, it works for the laptop too... sometimes and briefly.

    Oh, don't worry, I've filed that away so I can do some appropriate burning down the line. Not the school, of course; no point burning a building when souls are both much more readily flammable and a more easily sustained blaze. Not only on the specific souls, of course, but all those who created the system to be abused in the first place.

    The sad thing is I'm not EVEN surprised or even really outraged by any of this anymore; it is just a tired sigh, an eyeglow roll and another note added to the list of "Stuff Bleakbane Will Have To Fix, Because Humans Wouldn't, But Will Deeply Regret That They Didn't In What Remains Of Cognisence As Their Souls Burn Forever In Mindless Screaming Agony."

    Condolences, I can say I don’t miss grade school one bit. My experience was more inmate of Arkham asylum since I got booted from my local district and ended up in these horrible schools for special needs students. Just google “isolation rooms autistic students” you’ll get the idea.

    Bleakbane, killing everyone might technically cause their problems to go away, but it's not so much equivalent to "cutting the knot" as it is "decapitating the horses and manually dragging their cadavers away from each other."

    I know you don't actually care; I just thought I'd point it out.

    Ugh.

    I went through a pretty bad time in high school as well -- much more on the other kids bullying me side than bad teachers, but still scarring and painful for years.

    Oddly enough, I recently got a "I bullied you a lot in high school, I'm so so sorry, please forgive me" letter and... I couldn't even remember who the person was. It felt so good to realize I didn't even know who he was any more.

    Bullying is awful, that and getting in to trouble when you ended up standing up to them. I was baffled by some of the bullying I went through. I’m very tall, 6’2 so you’d think bullies wouldn’t “poke the bear” or “tickle the sleeping dragon” but they did.

    Oh, I got that too.

    In particular, I was sexually harassed in middle school by two different girls and in my first and fourth years of high school by two different guys. In both cases, it didn't really amount to much beyond inappropriate comments, but there's a non-zero chance that it's turned me off of the idea of romantic relationships.

    (One of the girls from middle school later in high school asked me and a friend to set her up with someone becuase she was too shy to ask them out herself. I kept my mouth shut but in the back of my head I was calling bull.)

    And middle school music class(which was mandatory) where my assigned seat was right next to two people who thought it was hilarious to ask me about my bathroom habits when I was in the middle of class trying to learn about how synthesizers work and would keep doing it until I started hyperventilating, and then they'd make fun of me for hyperventilating. Instead of punishing them for noisily asking in appropriate questions in class, the teacher would then make me get up and move my seat(something I hated becuase I'mn not doing anything wrong and it's my seat, move them!)

    Every. Fracking day, I would go to my seat to do my classwork and these two chuckle****s would spend the whole class period doing their best to make me lose it and the stress of doing it would make me hyperventilate and the teacher would always ask me why I kept going back to my seat and I'd ask back why she's punishing me instead of them and one day she flat out says that they wouldn't make fun of me if I didn't hyperventilate.

    "Hey, that completely involuntary reaction your body does from the stress of not flipping out and murdering the people who are putting you under extreme stress? Yeah, maybe don't do that."

    On two separate occasions, once in Middle school and once in high school, someone reacted to me trying to stop them from cutting in the lunch line by punching me in the chest in from of multiple members of the staff and not a damn thing happened. No one even asks if I'm okay.

    Go back even further? I was expelled in the first grade becuase nobody explained why I was in trouble when I was protesting art class(the art teacher forced me to start over on a project becuase someone in the other class picked the same thing as me and then canceled the project after the second day. I didn't think that was fair so I stopped going) and everyone acted like that was completely fine and an okay thing to do up until two weeks in when the principal is telling me that I need to go to art class without actually saying that I'm not allowed to protest classes or what rules I'm breaking and I get frustrated becuase she used to be nice but now she's acting mean and a six-year-old autist isn't going to be able to express themselves if they don't know what the hell is going on! So naturally, I start feeling threatened and when I felt threatened I'd make threats in turn. Eventually, my mom ju flat out tells me that the school called and said that they were gonna kick me out if I didn't go to art classes so I broke down, went to art class, got kicked out anyway.

    At my new school, I was put in behavioral problem classes... Which is to say, they put all the mentally handicapped kids, autistic kids, ADHD kids, and kids with personality disorders in a little room and had them do homework while only occasionally actually meeting with their actual teacher. For the first grade, second grade, and third grade(by fourth I was in regular classes full time, albeit with special needs accommodations.)

    For the first and second grades, the behavior problem room had a little wall on wheels that you sat behind for five minutes if you were being bad. To this day I still have no idea what constituted being bad and I'm still sure I was made to sit behind it for no reason. On at least one occasion I was put behind it repeatedly for literally doing nothing... They put an assignment in front of me and told me to do it when the assignment had no instructions and was something I had not learned yet.

    There were also toys and board games and stuff in a corner. On Fridays, after lunch, if you were well behaved and caught up on your homework, you gut to play. One day, in the second grade, after behaving myself all week and being caught up on my work for once, I spend ten minutes building something out of legos and then the other kid who was playing with legos grabs it and breaks it apart in three seconds. Being a seven-year-old autist I naturally start crying. The teacher handling this responds not by punishing the kid who broke the sculpture I spent time building but by yelling at me for crying and banning me from playing with legos for the rest of the school year. This also included a completely different brand of the block that were not called legos and did not function as legos that were kept in a separate tub(which she did not tell me content until I was caught playing with them and punished for), and all that was left were boardgames that... Nobody wanted to play becuase everyone else was playing with legos.

    So basically, in the second grade, I got cheated out of the reward that I was told I'd get if I behaved myself.

    And then once a year, every year, they'd haul the whole school and make them sit in the gym, close the doors, turn off all the lights, and project stuff up on the wall about whatever generic half-assed feel-good message they picked that year with the loudspeakers out at ear rape volume and every time I either talked my way out of it or I spent an hour sitting cross-legged in the middle of a crowd of people in pitch darkness with my eyes closed, my hands over my ears, crying in terror becuase I was an autistic child who had a pathological fear of loud noises, crowds, and the dark! and some people had no sympathy.

    Also, in the first grade after being moved to the new school, they thought I was racist for a month becuase they randomly pulled me out of class and made me spend time locked in a room alone with a woman without telling me what the hell was happening(it was supposed to be therapy) and assumed that it must have been becuase the woman was black instead of becuase they pulled me out of class during reading time and locked me in a room with someone without telling me what the hell was going on!.

    (The woman was a really sweet woman. we got along well once someone bothered to tell me what the hell was going on!)

    So, in conclusion: Elementary School is awful. Middle school is awful. High School was mostly awful.

    In particular, I was sexually harassed in middle school by two different girls and in my first and fourth years of high school by two different guys. In both cases, it didn't really amount to much beyond inappropriate comments, but there's a non-zero chance that it's turned me off of the idea of romantic relationships.

    (One of the girls from middle school later in high school asked me and a friend to set her up with someone becuase she was too shy to ask them out herself. I kept my mouth shut but in the back of my head I was calling bull.)

    And middle school music class(which was mandatory) where my assigned seat was right next to two people who thought it was hilarious to ask me about my bathroom habits when I was in the middle of class trying to learn about how synthesizers work and would keep doing it until I started hyperventilating, and then they'd make fun of me for hyperventilating. Instead of punishing them for noisily asking in appropriate questions in class, the teacher would then make me get up and move my seat(something I hated becuase I'mn not doing anything wrong and it's my seat, move them!)

    Every. Fracking day, I would go to my seat to do my classwork and these two chuckle****s would spend the whole class period doing their best to make me lose it and the stress of doing it would make me hyperventilate and the teacher would always ask me why I kept going back to my seat and I'd ask back why she's punishing me instead of them and one day she flat out says that they wouldn't make fun of me if I didn't hyperventilate.

    "Hey, that completely involuntary reaction your body does from the stress of not flipping out and murdering the people who are putting you under extreme stress? Yeah, maybe don't do that."

    On two separate occasions, once in Middle school and once in high school, someone reacted to me trying to stop them from cutting in the lunch line by punching me in the chest in from of multiple members of the staff and not a damn thing happened. No one even asks if I'm okay.

    Go back even further? I was expelled in the first grade becuase nobody explained why I was in trouble when I was protesting art class(the art teacher forced me to start over on a project becuase someone in the other class picked the same thing as me and then canceled the project after the second day. I didn't think that was fair so I stopped going) and everyone acted like that was completely fine and an okay thing to do up until two weeks in when the principal is telling me that I need to go to art class without actually saying that I'm not allowed to protest classes or what rules I'm breaking and I get frustrated becuase she used to be nice but now she's acting mean and a six-year-old autist isn't going to be able to express themselves if they don't know what the hell is going on! So naturally, I start feeling threatened and when I felt threatened I'd make threats in turn. Eventually, my mom ju flat out tells me that the school called and said that they were gonna kick me out if I didn't go to art classes so I broke down, went to art class, got kicked out anyway.

    At my new school, I was put in behavioral problem classes... Which is to say, they put all the mentally handicapped kids, autistic kids, ADHD kids, and kids with personality disorders in a little room and had them do homework while only occasionally actually meeting with their actual teacher. For the first grade, second grade, and third grade(by fourth I was in regular classes full time, albeit with special needs accommodations.)

    For the first and second grades, the behavior problem room had a little wall on wheels that you sat behind for five minutes if you were being bad. To this day I still have no idea what constituted being bad and I'm still sure I was made to sit behind it for no reason. On at least one occasion I was put behind it repeatedly for literally doing nothing... They put an assignment in front of me and told me to do it when the assignment had no instructions and was something I had not learned yet.

    There were also toys and board games and stuff in a corner. On Fridays, after lunch, if you were well behaved and caught up on your homework, you gut to play. One day, in the second grade, after behaving myself all week and being caught up on my work for once, I spend ten minutes building something out of legos and then the other kid who was playing with legos grabs it and breaks it apart in three seconds. Being a seven-year-old autist I naturally start crying. The teacher handling this responds not by punishing the kid who broke the sculpture I spent time building but by yelling at me for crying and banning me from playing with legos for the rest of the school year. This also included a completely different brand of the block that were not called legos and did not function as legos that were kept in a separate tub(which she did not tell me content until I was caught playing with them and punished for), and all that was left were boardgames that... Nobody wanted to play becuase everyone else was playing with legos.

    So basically, in the second grade, I got cheated out of the reward that I was told I'd get if I behaved myself.

    And then once a year, every year, they'd haul the whole school and make them sit in the gym, close the doors, turn off all the lights, and project stuff up on the wall about whatever generic half-assed feel-good message they picked that year with the loudspeakers out at ear rape volume and every time I either talked my way out of it or I spent an hour sitting cross-legged in the middle of a crowd of people in pitch darkness with my eyes closed, my hands over my ears, crying in terror becuase I was an autistic child who had a pathological fear of loud noises, crowds, and the dark! and some people had no sympathy.

    I'm sorry you've experience that. My school days were great before I got transfer to special education school I was bullied most of the time at public school. But after I was transfer for special education school it was a better experience.
    It's time to get my Magikarp on!

    Wow. The worst I've gotten in a school-ish environment was in a summer-camp thingy, where I was spinning on an office chair and another boy grabbed the back and wheeled me into the girls' restroom, while I kept yelling "No!" and "Stop!" before telling on me for "going into the girl's bathroom." I got in huge trouble, and I believe he got a reward for "warning" them about me being a "dangerous pervert" though I'm not sure about that last part.

    Before anyone asks: I didn't jump out because, prior to that event, I'd had my fingers get caught in chairs of that exact type, and had strips of flesh torn off in the process... multiple times. If he wasn't stopping when I yelled "stop" why would I expect him to stop rather than running me over?

    ...

    Other than that, my schooling and such was pretty good.

    ...Wow. I... I really don't have a direct comparison; my grade-school days weren't great but it seems like yours were continually around my worst. At least, I think so... I don't remember much of grade-school, I think I blocked a lot out. Or just have a poor memory.

    Empathy, anyway. I definitely know what it's like to be pressured and stressed and overflowing with nobody around you thinking it's a big deal.

    Oh, that reminds me of the "summer program" in elementary school, the summer between first and second grade.

    They tell me that it'll be fun, that there's a little bit of work but it'll mostly be games and field trips.

    It was two extra months of school with three field trips, the last of which I was forbidden from going on for reasons that I don't recall, with one teacher who didn't really care and one who was actively mean.

    I am pretty sure that she came up behind me and git me in the neck during one of the field trips. She said that some kids who weren't in the trip were throwing rocks but I could have sworn I saw her hand in the corner of my eye.

    So, basically I got tricked into giving up my summer for more awfulness.
