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.

The henchmen dropped my new lazor in the lava moat. >.< OMFG. I swear, they’re all f*cktarded. I’m gonna have to execute them. Maybe I’ll record it and post it on youtube. That’ll teach ‘em.


I tried to make my own Metal Gear to launch some nukes, but the launcher keeps backfiring! I’ve already lost FOUR volcano lairs to the testing process alone!

Piece of advice:
Don’t try to emulate video games when taking over the world. Nukes backfire. Stick to white-collar crime and you’ll rule in no time. Dammit, why am I giving you my tips?X_X

Progress is going slowly...

The henchmen STILL haven’t finished my giant laser. If henchmen weren’t so hard to come by, I swear I’d just toss ‘em all in the shark pit and hire a whole new staff. As if that isn’t bad enough, Austin Powers keeps breaking in and breaking all my shit in the lab. VERY, VERY, IRRITATING!!! X_X

Big frickin' lazorz PWN puny humans

It would be cool to be an evil genius with a volcano lair and a big frickin’ lazer, but being an evil henchman would be kewler b-cuz I would get to control the big frickin’ lazer, run around with a machine gun, and wear a matching jumpsuit (ladies can’t stop checking out my butt when I wear a jumpsuit).

Even though henching is fun, I still want to rule the world, so I would knock out the evil genius and dump him off in Wyoming. Noone would ever look there… Noone ever looks there…(maniacal laughter)
