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.

41) Balti
It wouldn’t be Birmingham without balti, I have been told. So I couldn’t leave the city without trying it. Wiki says that some people believe it was invented in Birmingham. Well, the people who live in the city seem to have no doubts about it. :D
Eating in an Indian restaurant itself was very new to me but balti, oh my god, how do I cook this?! It was incredible and I ate so much, I felt like I was going to give birth to triplets.

I’m going to have to ask about the other stuff I had cause I don’t remember the names at all.


40) Vegemite
Thanks koibito_k8 for recommending it to me, it sure was quite an experience.
It turns out it isn’t sold just in Australia – people in Britain seem to like it.
Well.. I don’t. :D


39) Oreo cookies



38) Peanut butter + jelly – peanut butter has no tradition in my country and most people actually hate it. I didn’t like it either until I tried it with jelly. Oh heavens, that is my kind of breakfast.


37) Falafel



36) Sake – And I’m never trying again, I hate the taste.

And next week, I’m going to have falafel with B., yay!

Arabic shop

There’s an Arabic grocery store in Brno and, apart from the fact that the shopkeeper is really nice and funny, he sells a lot of interesting things I’ve never seen or heard of.
I saw some Arabic sweets the other day and they looked really delicius.

I’ve got to go back and try!


35) Beer with walnut flavor. I was sceptical about it but it was actually pretty good.


34) Tempeh (Indonesian soy food product) – real deeeeelish.
