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.

8. What the...

...fricken frock.

I can’t attach the image because I can’t stand to look at it.

Don’t tell me he has like five of those things on his plate…
...and don’t tell me he is going to eat that thing!

This is what I am talking about!!!


Enough said.

5. Eating anything that still has FEET or EYEBALLS... JUST WRONG PEOPLE!!!!

If you can still make out what kind of animal it is while it’s on your plate – it’s WRONG.

My mother-in-law sat and ate shrimp right in front me. Not only did she eat shrimp in front of me, her shrimp had FEET!! It still had IT’S TINY LITTLE LEGS! She didn’t eat the feet (thank God), but still. Couldn’t they have taken the feet off before serving? Couldn’t she have chosen shrimp with no feet from the buffet? (Yes, yes I’m sure she could have. Instead, she chose the shrimp… with the feet… to eat in front of me.)

I thought I was going to BARF.

I didn’t have my camera with me, but this picture is close enough (hers were more raw). I’m gonna be sick…
