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.

Get Over It

Right, so everyone knows that the Mayan belief that the world will end falls 4 days from now. Looking towards it, I have sort of been like “eh, whatever.” But it wasn’t until a few weeks ago talking to Celeste that I realized that people are legitimately scared about the world actually ending. I figured the hardcore believers are already hellbent, so I may as well give those who are still scared a few reasons it won’t end:

1. The Mayan calendar didn’t factor in Leap year, so the world would have ended a few months ago if it was going to

2. The Mayan belief the world would end 12/21/2012 was based on that that date would be the end of their religious cycle. There have been many cycle ends already, and the world is still here

3. Science tells us that the world still has billions of years left to live. No external or internal forces will end it any time soon.

4. Mayans believed their gods would end the world once ritual bloodletting ended. It ended on a larg scale thousands of years ago, so if they existed they would have ended the world by now.

5. Humans have predicted the end of the world since religion basically began. Nothing original here.

I thank you for your time, and hope this has been useful. I may have left out some reasons, but I think this is most likely enough on its own. Happy wings progress.

Is it possible that people just hate based on nothing at all? That someone can hate you just because you exist?

GOD DAMNIT BORED TO DEATH

Going to Washington DC for a week. I have been 5 times already, and it never is any different. This time is different, however, because I am meeting John Cleese (anyone who knows who that is is awesome.) Last year it was Ben Stein (anyone who knows who that is is even more awesome.) Been staying up late recently texting. It is fine, though, because I rarely ever sleep at all. Also, more Hellsing, this time a cosplay.

Life of an Insane Person

I don’t know why, but whenever I try to make friends with relatively normal people, they completely hate me and it never works out. Whenever it is someone crazy, however, they are somehow drawn to me. I wouldn’t care normally but there is this girl in my class that is really nice and kind of normal and she hates me. I have done nothing to make her dislike me, but she just does. God damnit. Is it worth it to keep trying to be friends with her? Also, the manga and anime “Hellsing” is awesome.

Learn Alchemy
Untitled

I learned a little about alchemy a year ago. I don’t know how much some people on this thread know, but I know a significant ammount. I know about Chimera creation, the philosopher’s stone, transmutation, and other such topics.

WEll, this sucks. I have been told by a friend that juat moved not to contact her by email (and I presume text) ever again. It was because of this friend that I joined this naive goal, and put my time into figuring it out. Who should I be more inclined to hate: the friend for wasting my time, her parents (for obvious reasons, or myself for being attached so easily? Don’t answer “nobody,” because it wastes my time as well as yours.

Been testing the non lethal poisons and curative mixtures I have been making lately. In case any of you don’t know, I am a learning apothecary. And for those who don’t really understand “testing,” I should really say i am “ingesting” them. I will say this much, they work _

Starting to get discouraged…depressed…angry. I feel like nothing I do is right, like nothing I do matters. I feel like I am going to hell no matter what.

Interesting idea for a goal. Most people shouldn’t be lonely (with a few key people as exceptions.)

I am struggling with something that is on my mind lately.

I have believed for about a year or two that I could see demons (I also bought the belief that demons could be born as humans.) It is through their eyes (there is a dark aura in the eyes of demons that appearentally only I see.) I am struggling with this because I have noticed that someone very close to me has that same aura in her eyes (only weaker.) I need to know:

Can she be saved from Hell even if it means I must be sent to Hell myself in her place?

Please…tell me.

I don’t recommend to any of you to lose even a part of your emotions. It isn’t fun.

I am beginning to get discouraged. I have researched for months now, and still no solid leads to go on for growing wings. I have to wonder if I am wasting my time. Anyone have any thoughts?
