Just to feel the energy there.
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.

Duh. Once your first child is born, the entire universe changes for you and you realize why we are here.. we’re here to protect and love and encourage and help our children. Bottom line.
BUT – he will make important progress and help set the stage for future generations of Americans to be able to stand as world citizens and not targets.
Jumping, diving, falling with a little style.. whatever you call it, it is what I love to do. Arkansas at Beaver.. here at Waimea at “the rock”.. I can’t say enough about how you should do this – if you want to – and do it safely. It is one of my top three activities of all time… See Cliff diving” here on 43 things for more info and a web site link about cliff diving and jumping. Aloha! – FlyingO O
Cliff diving is my absolute favorite “sport” activity. I began jumping off of small bluffs into lakes in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. My children enjoy the sport as well. My favorite place (so far) is by the dam on Beaver Lake in northwest Arkansas. If you are interested in finding sites where you can try this, please visit this web site: http://www.airabovewater.com , there you will find US and world-wide locations and directions for cliff diving spots as well as other cliff diving information.
I hope everyone who wants to, gets the opportunity to jump and enjoy the air above water! – FlyingO O
