Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

Iron Man is one busy hombre

call to order a meeting of the "Slightly Off" Club (read all 8 entries…)
Ok, good and slightly-off people,

I think it’s time to do something that will absolutely confuse the everloving sheet out of us all here. Wear someone else’s face for a week. No one will know who the heck they’re talking to (other than by our own colloquialisms, grammar, and writing styles).



Comments:

Rouenpucelle and other enquiring minds want to know.

I have

absolutely no idea who you are.

Great idea

Is this confusing enough for you?

You don't have to switch,

just find someone’s avatar that you like (and you know they won’t be offended) and take it for a week. Most people here are pretty easy going. Rouenpucelle took mine before I decided to get even and take hers. Celtic Christian is using mine too. Maybe you could use his? Or maybe there’s someone ele’s you’d like. Maybe you can take TG’s. Whatever – whoever. It doesn’t have to be an exchange though.

Just go for it. It’s fun, it’s insane.

no love

I get no love with this face.

If you were Mick Jaggar,

you wouldn’t get no satisfaction either.

Why not be another me (there can be three, although I don’t think I can guarantee the lovin’ part, but it would be confusing) Or you could be another Rouey, or another Lisa, Or you could be Apteryx, or, ....

I'm not part of the heard

I march to the bear of my own drummer, man.

I’m sticking with the bible thumper at least until tomorrow.

I have pictures from one of my favorite graphic novels I’d like to use.

Are you familiar with Mr. Clement?
(He’s the author, not the character)

IS this why I live in a split level head

I´ve lived in apartments, I´ve lived in a home
I travelled in trailers when I used to roam
But now in these places you won´t have me dead
´Cause I´m happy I live in a split-level head

I do what I want to, no worries, no care
If anyone bugs me I climb up my stairs
Way up to a level where I feel no threat
´Cause I´m happy I live in a split-level head

If you´re trying something, I couldn´t care less
I don´t rush for busses and trains are a mess
There´s no one to care for, I don´t need a bed
´Cause I´m happy I live in a split-level head

I like how I´m living, I´m nobody´s slave
My head´s above water, so don´t make a wave
There are no doors to lock and no dogs to be fed
´Cause I´m happy I live in a split-level head

Now why should I move when the neighborhood´s right?
No taxes to pay and no landlord to fight
Now I call this living, what´s more, like I said
´cause Im happy I live in a split-level head

Now you keep your ulcers, your ills, and what, too
You sure couldn´t have them and live like I do
You think I hace problems, but you do instead
´Cause I´m happy I live in a split-level head

I live with two people, I like both of them
He likes both of me and I like both of him
They´re my alter-ego and to them I´m wed
´Cause I´m happy I live in a split-level head

There´s no simple status in my neighborhood
And that kind of thinking, I think it´s so good
And I don´t take the lead when I like to be led
´Cause I´m happy I live in a split-level head

change is good

We all know who we are. we’ve got to keep changing.
