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.

talk to somebody who tasted their urine
Untitled

I have got lost in the woods 8 times in the last 2 years and I’m always scared that I will be stuck for a long time. I saw some show about a man who drinked his urine to stay alive, but I always worry I can’t and will die. I wish I could just talk to somebody who did this and know what it is like so I can quit worrying about it. I thought about trying it in the bathroom so I could have a place to throw up but just thinking about it made me throw up a little bit in my mouth. My grandma says it tastes kind of like soap but I don’t see how since I don’t drink nothing with soap in it. Oh God I pray if the time comes I can do this without practice.



start a war-gaming club
Untitled

OK. I really want to start a war-gaming club more than anything. It will be called “People vs. Bigfoots.” Some people will dress up like bigfoots, sasquatches, florida stink apes, grass mans, etc. and other people will dress up in medieval costumes. Then they will all come to the field to do battle. There could be different events like “The Cudgeling” and “The Bludgeoning” and maybe some battles to favor the bigfoots like “Hand-to-Hand.” I’m sure there was bigfoots around back in medieval days, and I’m surprised nobody has thought of this. There could be booths for selling food, trinkets, hotdogs, Vicodin, etc. There could be medieval dancing, feats of strength, face painting. I think it could be really awesome. Maybe someday when people and bigfoots live in harmony, real bigfoots could come. Then people would say it was really ahead of its time. I will pray hard for this one.

This will never happen now. My driver’s license got expired. Now they want $18 for me to get another one.
