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.

KaliTime CamaralzmanJumping Up and Biting Faces Off

My ex came up with another one of his hair brained ‘factoid theories’ and I snapped. I started throwing real scientific data at him and he didn’t know what to do. All he could do was sit there shaking and quaking in my wake.

He tried again later by making fun of some kids walking down the street. They were teenagers and had done nothing to him at all but he felt the need to make fun of them by pointing out the way they were walking. Given that he’s not exactly got the best walk on the planet, I turned it around on him.

It felt good not to sit there and take that crap. I don’t know how I put up with that for so long when I was younger. 8 years ago
