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.

I will help anyone out with a zombie outbreak and I even plan on making a site that has what to do, where to go, and a caht room so when it does happen, you can contact people!!


Well, I am getting the Zombie Survival Guide for my birthday and I have an effective plan to survive. Guns are GREAT for survival, but if you have never shot a gun before or are too young, a blunt object would be more effective for you. Stay away from knives as it makes you have to get close to them to cut through their heads, which would give you a BAD opprotunity to get bitten. Also, try to get your hands on some of that packaged food that the military uses, great for you to be holed up somewhere or even traveling, as it is already cooked. It may not be EXTREMELY good, but at least it gives you proper nourishment to stay alive! Avoid confrontations with a group of zombies, but extract one or two to kill for your liking. Have yourself a guaranteed way out of your barricaded area (complete with a proper zombie-protected vehicle.) just in case you run out of supplies and they start closing in dramatically. This gets you to escape safely, but you may lose a couple of people in the process. I have said too much….but anyways, I know that on this New Years, when they were counting down, I barricaded myself in my room with my .357 and spare ammo, ready at will. Sounds stupid, but a zombie outbreak is EXTREMELY possible in the near future, what with all of the Top Secret experiments going on and what not….anyone agree?


I want to:
