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.

FINALLY got them out. wasn’t half bad as I thought it would be. the swelling was crazy but it wasn’t that painful. I didn’t even take any of the heavy meds I was prescribed. I got sick of jelly and mashed potatoes REAL quick. 5 months on and I still have holes in my gums. I’ve been told they never really fill in :( 2 years ago

The lower 2 are impacted into my jaw and the upper 2 are touching my sinuses. All in all, with insurance I will be paying $1360 out of pocket. Oy Vey. 2 years ago

UskaDaraWorst surprise EVAR

My dentist surprised me by taking them out.
Dentist: So, we’ve discussed those wisdom teeth before, haven’t we?
Me: Uh… Yeah?
Dentist: Well, we’re going to take them out today.
Dentist: Oh, don’t worry, you don’t need a ride home, we’re just going to use local anesthetic. 2 years ago

Yet another cancellation! Was meant to get them out in January, that’s now been moved to May. That’s 3 cancellations now… it seems like I am seriously not meant to get them out! 2 years ago

I was meant to do this in January and it got cancelled, and then I was meant to do this on Monday and it got cancelled. so now that it seems to be an unreachable goal, I feel it must go on here so that the day I finally do it I have the added joy of crossing it off on here :) 3 years ago

I used to joke about it and call it “the hole with the teeth around”, but then it started to hurt awfully and I had to remove it.
What’s worse, it really left a hole, leavin the nerve of the nearby teeth uncovered, so it started to hurt like crazy too!
In all the pain I was lucky: my doctor has little hands so he managed to just devitalize it (it is in a difficult position to operate) instead of removing it too. 3 years ago
