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.

“life’s not a bitch, life is a beautiful woman..you only call her a bitch ‘cause she won’t let you get that p--. maybe she didn’t feel y’all had any similar interests, or maybe you’re just an asshole who couldn’t sweet talk the princess.”



George Quibuyen

You call it Thankgivin’, I call it things taken.

and..
I had to put the whole verse:

America romanticize the old war story
Heroes, ammos, guns, blood guts and glory
And no wonder the majority wants a war with Iraq
Even if only 15% know where it’s at on a map
With our backs against a stockpile of weaponry
Enough to turn the earth into a memory, ‘cept there’ll be
No one to remember this planet
If it happens god damn it, if I get drafted today
I swear to God, Jah, Allah and Yahweh
I’ll toss the letter away and I’ll pull a Cassius Clay, In the military
Minorities comprise the majority, surprised? are you kidding me?
the lies rely on brown bodies to fight for white puppet masters
I cannot fathom how the caged bird drinks
Until he thinks he is free
A critical mass between the heavenly future, and a hell of a past..



Stephen Colbert

“Reality has a well-known liberal bias.”



Rene Descartes

“If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.”

“I think; therefore I am.”



John Lennon

“God is a concept by which we measure our pain.”



Michael Pollan

“You are what what you eat eats.”



Dumbledore

“Of course it’s happening in your head Harry, but why on earth should that mean it isn’t real?”



Michael Pollan

“A lawn is nature under totalitarian rule.”



Margaret Atwood

“Stupidity is the same as evil if you judge by the results.”



Albert Einstein

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
