I was bullied mercilessly and horrendously throughout my public school careers and the only thing the bystanders did was stand around, watch and laugh.
That doesn't sound like 'bullying' to me, more like a threat of bodily harm.

Yes. The feeling you get after eating a large dinner? When you trip on you shoe laces and scrape your knee? When you stub your toe in the dark? Bullying. Bullying. Bullying.
So anything that makes me feel bad is bullying? 
by that i mean if you threaten them . as in "If you don't shut up and stop being so stupid im gonna kill you"

See here's my issue. When I was bullied in school I lost all my friends. No one was there for me. I was called awful names; one of which the dean had called me and my two friends racist. I assure you we are not; this came up because the group of girls attacking me were African-American. Anyways; I attempted to stop the bullying on my friends and it got me in deeper trouble with the girls and with the school. Schools don't seem to take action soon enough to stop bullying.
