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.

idkbrblol"not milk?"

“In the wild, every young mammal is weaned from milk at a genetically appropriate age and never drinks milk again. Calves are no exception. ...The purpose is so that animals can eventually rely on substantial food for their nutrients.”
“In reality, calcium is in all leafy green vegetables, in many fruits, as well as in raw nuts.”

”...powerful GROWTH hormone called Insulin … identical in cows and humans…”
“Calcium? Where do the COWS get calcium for their big bones? Yes… from plants!”

Another “big” phrase we hear in milk propaganda is that milk gives you big strong bones. Honestly, how many girls out there want to be nicknamed “big-bones”? How many (sum, or percent) female models are “big-boned”?

Flo Jo died?!

“You have no more need of cow’s milk than you do rats milk, horses milk or elephant’s milk. Cow’s milk is a high fat fluid exquisitely designed to turn a 65 lb baby calf into a 400 lb cow. ...!” -Dr Michael Klaper MD

Back to for one more quote: I’ll put it in bold bc I think it is that important. “Milk is typically pasteurized more than once… ...each time for only 15 seconds at 162 degrees Fahrenheit.
To sanitize water one is told to boil it (212 degrees F) for several minutes. That is a tremendous disparity, isn’t it!”

While reading these, I remembered “Mad Cow Disease” Do you think that’s just “gone away”? Maybe it’s magically disappearedliterally into the annals of history!!? ?! ?! (Do note Mr. Cohen’s notice near the bottom.) “Everything on the NOTMILK website is…”

Pop – it’s probably still more healthy than the milk we’re given in the U.S.
BTW, It’s been about two months since I’ve bought a Coke!!!! (On the down-side, I’ve accepted a few :(, &/but declined a couple :) ) [This gives me a thought: why do we get a symbol for “and” {&}, but not a symbol for “but”? How about ”$” for “but”? {That way it also sounds like butt.}]

idkbrblol"it's cool, & refreshingly inevitable"

So, if & when I save money by choosing to not buy a pop, (sometimes I usually walk away & after awhile I start to think that it’s inevitable that I’ll buy another one; tomorrow, or in hours), what if I went straight home & stuffed that dollar into a glass piggy bank – something that I might take a second thought to destroy. That way it’ll be out of my hands & offa my mind.
(And pop’s bad for the stomach & liver & brain & intestines, & pancreas, & arms, & legs, & toes, & follicles, & cuticles, &c.)

idkbrblolTasty (dangerous) treats

Baked deadly Crab Cakes (?!)
Hearty deadly Clam Chowder (?!)
deadly Shrimp Stir-Fry (?!)

I read awhile ago that such “seafood” were especially subject to picking up toxins from the environment.
(Too bad they’re so tasty!)

idkbrblolI knocked down a paper wasp nest today

I waited till it was dark, turned on the porch light, grabbed my trusty garden implement, inched closer and closer, then with one nervous thrust/twist sliced it from its place and watched it fall, (while trying to drop my implement quietly so as to not disturb the neighbors).
Then, as I tried to quickly back into the garage, my shorts pocket got caught on the door handle!
How’s this relate to “Learn basic first aid”? Please don’t ask. 4 years ago

idkbrblolI threw a stick today!!

(Several, actually.) I went around picking up sticks that had fallen out of trees, and was throwing them out into the woods, when I picked up one that was the perfect size and weight for throwing. I drew my arm back, prepared to throw, (for speed more-so than accuracy) and it felt different than getting ready to throw a rock; and it didn’t hurt my arm to throw it hard; like the last several rocks I threw. I wondered if there might be something neat for a sports therapist or coach or kinesthetic scientist to look at, (though they probably have).

idkbrblolI drove up on an accident once

It would have been real nice to have helped.
And it’s not like it’s useless factoids. This could be really important stuff some day.
(This should be up higher on my list.) 4 years ago

kekomanTo help
