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.

Make a song about the earth with these words

geography: the study of people, places, and things are located and of the ways in which things relate

absolute location: the position on the earth which a place can be found

equator: an imaginary circle around the middle of the earth, halfway between the North Pole and the South Pole

longitude: imaganary lines that run north and south of merideans

hemisphere: half of the earth usually referred to as eastern or western; northern or southern

latitude: an imaginary line around the Earth parallel to the equator

relative location: where a place is located in relation to other places

prime meridean: immagionary line that is 0 longitude and runs from the north pole to the south pole

formal region: areas in which certain characteristics are found throughout the area

functional region: one centeral place and the surrounding places

core: center of the Earth that contains very hot metal, iron and nickle

mantle: a thick layer of rock

crust: the rocky surface layer

contients: large landmasses in the oceans

relief: differences in elavation between the highest and lowest points

lava: molten rock

fold: rock layers bend and buckle

faults: breaks in the Earth’s crust

plate tectonics: the therory that the Earth’s outer shell is composed of a number of large, unanchored plates, or slabs of rock, whose constant movement explains earthquakes and volcanic activity

contiental drift therory: the idea that contients slowly shift their positions due to movement of the tectonic plates on which they ride

Ring of Fire: a circle of valcanos surrounding the Pacific Ocean

geology: the study of the earth’s physical structure and history

mechanical weathering: when rock is actually broken or weakened physically

chemical weathering: the process of altering a rock’s chemical makeup by changing the minerals that form the rock of combining them with new chemical elements

weathering: the breakdown of rock at or near the Earth’s surface into smaller and smaller pieces

acid rain: chemicals in the polluted air combine with water vapor and fall back to earth

erosion: the movement of weathered materials

sediment: small particles of sand, soil, and gravel

loess: windblown deposits of mineral-rich dust and silt

glaciers: huge, slow-moving sheets of ice

moraines: ridgelike piles of rock and debris left behind from glaciers
