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.

- The Robots.

become a mermaid (read all 3 entries…)

Was snooping around a website, and I came across something fantastic! Mermaid proof! It can’t be a human because the tail moves like a wave whereas fake mermaids move around the knee joint! Also, the tail goes too thin for human legs to fit in! Is it a REAL mermaid? :D I knew they exsisted!

EDIT: Forgot to actually link you guys to the video . There!



I kinda remember that I saw that video before you shared It!! maybe I have seen It after one of my ballet clases!!!I usually dont remember the 1 hour after my ballet class!!!well I think Its real!!
I totally beleive in mermaids!!!

It looks real so I’m pretty sure it is! :D Hard to fake at THAT level :3
I believe too! :D

Thank You!!! Fianlly To Show Non Believers The Truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank You So Much, Bless Your Soul!

Aw :’) I’m glad you’re happy to see it, it’s very interesting! :)

mermaid_fae will become a mermaid, no matter what...


That’s really cool. Your right- the tail is too thin to be a humans legs and it does not bend. That’s amazing!

Very! :D

That video was taken from somewhere else. It didn’t originally belong to this person.

And I’m sorry, but I see the tails bending where knees would be in every clear shot…could you give me the time for one where it doesn’t?

Well that’s your opinion, but I can’t see the “knee”, I just see the tail move like a wave, plus, it’s too thin for human legs.

I don’t see how the tail is too thin, either…it’s about as think as the rest of the body, according to my screen…

It thins out so if it was a fake that person would of had very short legs

NoOrdinaryGirl has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
