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.

En3rgy is trying to let the animal within out

Question to lord bearclaw

Lordbearclaw why is it that you come onto these goals and say you want to do it when in actuality you just want to deminish the goals of others? I mean, it just makes no sense. You are a forty-something year old man and yet you argue and carry on like a child arguing people with their beliefs. Dont you think its time to give it a rest? I mean… I have argued with you time and time again. trust me ive got the email notifications to prove it but in the end all you do is agitate (excuse my spelling) people and in the end if your intentions are what you say then once you see people arent listening shouldnt you let them find it out themselves? I mean we all have a “fantasy” of some sort. Now im not saying that this goal is fantasy but its what i and many other people believe in. Please i understand its not what you believe in but arguing with children when you are a grown man is not the best thing to do.


Lord Bearclaw Belief does not equal reality.

I am not "arguing" with anyone.

I state the scientific and medical facts that proves these fantasies are not real, and everyone else throws a tantrum. You will notice (your very post proves what I say) that all I have done is to post the reasons these are nothing but fantasies, and everyone else calls me out or posts entries directed at me, when the reverse is not true – I am not attacking anyone, or posting directly to anyone, although, like this post, I will directly reply to individuals when called out.

As I have said before, if a goal is made that say, wants to know how to successfully transmute cool whip into gold, and I post the scientific reasons that such is not possible, how is that doing anyone a disservice? The same analogy holds true here – I post WHY this is not possible in order to allow ANYONE the chance to read the truth and to make their own decision as to what to believe. I am doing a great service by showing the “other side of the coin” so to speak, and my right to do so is guaranteed by the Constitution.

You may not like what I say, you may disagree with what I say, but the difference is that I have proven, verified, empirical fact to back up what I say as well as 40 years of experience and education whereas claimants and adherents to this fantasy cannot provide ONE scrap of empirical evidence to support their fantasy.

Just because a person can create a goal does not mean it is valid or achievable.

If the truth “agitates” people who choose to live in lies, that’s not my problem. To censor the truth in order to allow people to live in lies is the real disservice.

It is the moral, social, and ethical duty of ALL adults to teach truth to children and to debunk lies. That is what being an real adult is all about. “Children” have NO business being on this site – 13 and up is the minimum age. 43 Things maintains a zero tolerance policy towards users 12 and younger because of legal ramifications.
