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.

I don’t want to talk to you, no more, you empty-headed animal,

take this



“You’re putting me on.”

“No, it’s pronounced Frahnkenstein.”

“Do you also say “Froderick”?”

“No, Frederick.”

“Well why isn’t it Froderick Frahnkenstein??”

“It isn’t, it’s Frederick Frahnkenstein.”

“You must be Igor”

“No, it’s pronounced EYEgore”

“Well they told me it was Igor!”

“Well they were wrong then, weren’t they??”


::clap clap clap::

I fart in your general direction

Taunt You A Second Time was also the name of a card game that came out based on the film. I forget if it was supposed to be collectable beyond the main pack, however.

This has been a public geek announcement. We now return you to your regularly scheduled nonsense.

I am so slow, I am so slow

That took me a few moments to catch on.

Nah, I think you should just tease them. Tease them all! Bwahahahaha!

I try to keep this side of my geekiness under wraps

As I used to tell my class of homeschool boys who would spend the whole session spouting Python bits: no one’s going to EVER let you sit at the Cool Kid table.

But it’s there . . . god help me, it is so there . . .

(This comment was deleted.)

the cool kid table

is an illusion

the real cool kid table was in my highschool where we all sat around in our British Comedy Club and watched everything from monty python, black adder and yes…Young Frankenstein (we just thought it was fucking hilarious)

we were by far the coolest
