    Checking up on 43 again. LBC still at it. I don't think he understands 43 is a sliver of his target group and majority just don't care. He's believing he's preventing things like the Florida slaughter (which was done by a guy obsessed with playing a game with the role he assumed and in no way on 43) and targeting the BigBads when in reality he's being trying to scale a sloped brick wall for the past 7 years. In order to truly and honestly possibly target those who wish to harm others through stuff like this, he'd have to somehow bother those who created those ideas, otherwise we'll just keep on comin' generation after generation and LBC will die achieving nothing.

    People believe wizards are real because of Harry Potter. God(s)/demigods/Monsters/Angels/Demons/etc because of religion and pantheons. Vampires because of folklore and Twilight. A slew of things because of anime. Why not attack J.K. and Meyers for not making it clearer to those LBC deems us all young, impressionable and out to murder our parents and rape teenagers that wizards/vamps are not real? But even then, he'd have to cook up some form of time travel (I'm sure it's possible with that big brain of his) and go back in time to stop the things he doesn't believe in from being created. But even then, that'd be messing in some stuff none of us knows about.

    The vast majority of science is theory. We as living beings on Earth (I mean everything) have barely explored our own planet, let alone have started trying to make sense of a higher being and universe beyond. We have no clue what we and "others" are capable of or exist, and I doubt we will with fidget spinners and Kim K taking a shit the biggest news on everybody's mind (in the developed world where things can actually get done at least). We have no idea what age of history, technology or universe we are living in. Nobody knew it was the Renaissance. People thought the Earth the flat. Nobody believed the car would make it a decade.

    This is getting long, but I think I've made myself clear.

      @caeladriel If even ONE person on here, or various other websites, sees what I have written and decides to trust proven Science over myth and fantasy, and avoids a potentially dangerous situation because of that knowledge, then everything I have ever typed is worth it for that one life alone.

      I didn't say that the Florida "vampire" murders were on 43, as they took place long before 43's inception. I do contend, however, that if such a person were to be active on 43 now, that I would post what I could to educate their targets. On the old site there were many users that posted that they could "turn" people into this or that, or could teach them magic, or users that were begging to be "turned" and posted their addresses or where they could be located.

      So yes, the danger is still real, there are people in this world who use the beliefs of others to prey on them. Usually such conversations are harmless, IMHO, but if they are of a more sinister bent then the only thing the prospective new "vampire", "werewolf", "faerie", "warlock" etc. etc. etc. ad nauseum will be turned into is a new statistic in the missing persons reports and likely will only ever be found as a nameless corpse. Slavery is on the rise again, and it is thought that a great many of juvenile "runaways" and kidnap victims end up in sexual slavery rings both here in the States and shipped overseas. In most cases these people are never heard from or seen again.

      I attack false ideas, misinformation, dangerous fantasies, and outright lies. This is the human duty and obligation of any ethical, moral individual, to not let false information flourish. I have already achieved an incalculable amount, and my words echo into the future, as long as the websites that contain my posts remain active and the Internet keeps going. It is impossible to estimate how many worldwide have read what I have said, both here and elsewhere.

      Only people who do not have a firm grasp on reality could ever believe that Harry Potter, the vampires from Twilight, Ariel the mermaid, Luke Skywalker, Superman, etc. are real, as they are clearly the invention of authors and/or screenwriters. Just because you read something in a book or see it on TV or in a movie does not make it real. Anyone with a good grasp of common sense knows this. However, in our Western society, with its immersion in fantasy, the "magical thinking" phase of childhood mental development has been artificially extended through the teen years and even into adulthood by social media, films, shows, books, other media, that all create "worlds" that ask us to suspend our disbelief to enjoy them.

      J.K. Rowling, Meyers, and other authors DO make it clear that their books and works are fiction. That's why they are in the Fiction sections, and why they reference events that could never happen in real life without there being mass public attention focused on them. Just because we see Superman fly across the movie screen does not mean that there are Kryptonians actually out there, nor did the creators of the story ever intend anyone to take it seriously. Yet, during the Fifties, there were children who thought that if they put a cape around their necks they could fly like Superman, and many of these were badly injured by jumping off of high places like the roof of the family garage.

      Again, my "belief" is irrelevant. I am not discussing my "beliefs". I AM discussing what I KNOW to be factual, proven, objective Scientific data. Time travel, for instance, is not possible, mainly because if you step outside of the timestream, you would no longer be affected by gravity, traction, centrifugal force, atmospheric pressure, etc. You would be occupying a fixed position on the galactic XYZ coordinates. If you went back even one hour, and phased back into the timestream, you'd be dead, because the Earth wouldn't be at those coordinates, as the Solar System is moving through space at better that a million miles an hour. One hour ago the Earth was a million miles away from where it is now, like a car traveling down a road at 70 mph. If you time travel while in the car, and go back one hour, you would be standing beside the road and the car would be an hour away, back down the road. You can't travel through spatial coordinates, unless your time machine is also a spaceship.

      We know pretty much exactly where we are in the timescale of the planet's 4.5 billion year existence. We know that we are the first sentient race on Earth, and that our technology is the first time such things have been seen on our planet. We know what universe we are in. The Renaissance was so named later on because of the advances in philosophy, rational thinking, art, science, medicine, technology, etc. that started us down the long path to a technologically advanced society. Had we stayed in the Dark Ages, trusting myth and superstition then we wouldn't have anything you take for granted - computer, electricity, running, clean water, refrigeration, grocery stores, vehicular transportation, medicine, life-saving surgeries, television, internet, modern manufacturing, plastics, etc. the list is nearly inexhaustible. People have known the Earth was round since the days of the ancient Greeks, because they used mathematical and scientific principles to prove that the world was a sphere. Ignorant, uneducated, superstitious fools who chose not to believe in objective, factual data are the ones who made the idea of the Earth being flat accepted among the common population, and such people exist even now, regardless of the proven data, facts, observations, and tested, consistent Scientific principles that show beyond a shadow of a doubt that the world is spherical. The car was looked upon as a "flash in the pan" only by people who had no intelligent imagination, and who could not understand that the internal combustion engine would quickly revolutionize transportation and shipping.

      As for the idea of "censorship", unless someone does something illegal, against the T.O.S., or is engaging in behaviors that could get the site sued, like the ones before posting their addresses and asking to be "turned", or posting content that could result in liability for deaths - such as the "spell" one girl posted to become a "mermaid" that could have ended in multiple deaths, both at the time it was posted and in the future - then I am not trying to "censor" any of you. Post all the fantasies you like. What I am saying is that if you have the Right (per Freedom of Speech) to claim that you can grow a tail, or wings, or fangs, or fur, or cast "spells", or anything else imaginable, then I have just as much Right (per MY Freedom of Speech) to present the factual, proven, objective, Scientific data that shows that your statements are wrong.

      Don't like being told you're wrong? Too bad. you will find as you go through life that most people have a relatively low tolerance for b.s. and they will call you on it. That's not "bullying", that's not "harassment". That is simply someone refusing to take your words at face value until you show actual proof, and they have every Right to ask to see such Proof. The more outrageous the claim, the more outrageous the proof required.

        @lordbearclaw You've already posted it yourself on SNS, so it is now public information. Would you really like me to repost your post where you state your information and publicly talk about your mother and home? How the hell do you think I found it? It's there, it's already there for the whole world to see, and you posted it. You and I both know that there is absolutely nothing you or your imaginary lawyer (delusional hypocrisy) can do about it. You don't like it, then leave this sight. You are not wanted here, Brion Woods. You are like the arrogant obnoxious kid who was not invited to the party because no one likes him, but being an egotistical jerk, he figures that it was just a mistake on his being left off the guest list, so he invites himself. The other kids are, of course, annoyed that he had the audacity to show up, but they are too polite to tell him to leave. Instead, they decide to ignore, but they can't ignore him, because he continually tries to impose his will: "This party is too loud, you'd better tone it down. Those kids are too young to be drinking. No jumping into the pool naked, this is a mixed party. And that music - rock and roll? Are you kidding me? Classic is so much better, and let me tell you why." This sight is not really appropriate for your particular personality, Brion Woods. If you'll excuse the pun, it doesn't really sheath your sword. So if I were you, I'd search the internet for a more compatible venue that is devoted to pomposity where you can argue and debate to your heart's content with like fellows who feel the constant need to tell all on the sight that they are smarter than each other. I really hope we've heard the last of you, but not sure, since you've constantly proven yourself to be very slow on the uptake. For a self professed genius, you are really quite stupid.

    Oh, I guarantee you it's not "pointless". The great majority of those who were "interested" in this fantasy from seven years ago have likely grown up (assuming an average age seven years ago of 13), got jobs, graduated high school, went on to college, started families, etc. and they in all likelihood don't believe in this fantasy at all.

    Only a few people remain who were here seven years ago, and those people, if they were older than 13 at the time would now be in their early twenties, and they are choosing to continue perpetuating an impossible fantasy to impressionable children who do not need to be lied to.

    I can guarantee with 100% certainty that anyone who tells you that they have achieved any amount of success at this are either lying or are delusional. Humans do not become half anything. We do not have the DNA coding to become anything other than what we are. Anyone telling you different is lying.

    That's not being "sanctimonious", that's called being Truthful. Truth and lies are not "equally valid viewpoints" - a lie isn't valid at all. There are no "merfolk" - only wannabees who hide behind a keyboard and live in a fantasy that they are "changing" into a hybrid creature and that "magic(k)" is real.

    As for me not having a life.... lol. I have done more than most people do in a lifetime. &#xsmile;

      @lordbearclaw Nobody needs to be lied to, but anybody can choose to believe a lie. Trying to take this choice away from people by forcingly making them adapt to your truth is nothing more than being a dictator.

      Furthermore, your assumptions that these people are weak, being manipulated and need you to bring them the light is condescending and degrading. Stop puting yourself in the role of saviour of people who don't need to be saved.

        @rainbowssparks I'm not making or forcing anyone to choose to believe the Truth. Such a notion is absurd. I am exercising my Freedom of Speech to present the factual truth in counterpoint to the lies. You can believe what you will.

        Let's say that this goal was about whether or not you could build a working 57 Chevy out of pancakes. No matter how many "yes men" and instigators all clamor that such a thing is possible, spreading lies and misinformation, the simple, plain truth is that the chassis, internal combustion engine, tires, windshield, shell, seats, etc. etc. etc. simply cannot be made out of pancakes and be expected to be functional.

        That is simple physics and mechanical principles. Anyone who then posts to that goal explaining this (which should be common sense) shouldn't be attacked, made fun of, or threatened.

        Yet, because of a little thing called cognitive dissonance, this is exactly what happens when someone like me straight up says that these fantasies are simply impossible and worse yet, may be damaging to the psyche if continued into adulthood, and may in certain cases actually place individuals in actual danger.

        Look at the "vampire" goals that used to be on the old site - then look up the information on the underage girl and her overage "vampire boyfriend" that murdered her parents and then took off cross country before being stopped - all because she believed he was a "vampire". Look at the plethora of "magic spells" on the internet for becoming this or that, some of which call for the ingestion of certain seemingly innocuous substances that can, in conjunction with other substances, be deadly.

        Or the ingestion of too much of something - on the old site I shut down a thread in which one wannabee was telling others to ingest iron pills in order to "train" their body to handle the iron in blood. It doesn't work that way - excess iron ingestion is lethal. Same thing with water - good, plain old, harmless H20 - drink too much, too fast and you will push yourself into water intoxication where you throw the electrolyte / water balance off, and the electrolytes needed to keep your heart beating are then in far too small of a concentration in solution in your bloodstream to work - and you die. And I still see these and others - in "magic spells" all over the Net.

        Sure, YOU might know better, and your friends might know better, but there are millions upon millions of children in the world who have Internet access who do not know better and will follow these fantasies even to the point of inadvertent self-harm.

        No one is saying people are weak, or that I'm a "savior" or that I'm bringing anyone to the "light". Please. What I AM saying, and what I have always said, is that people deserve to have the truth presented to them as well as a lie. Plain and simple - if you have the right to deceive others, then I have the right to present the information that proves you wrong.

          You fail to see the point people are trying to make over and over, you fail to see that your truth is not necessarily rejected because of pretend games online, you fail to see that you are harrassing people and you fail to see that you use your freedom of speech to limit that of others.

            @rainbowssparks I am not harassing anyone. I am posting to a public goal like anyone else has the right to do. Just because my postings are unpopular or contradict other posts is NOT harassment.

            Don't like what I say? No one is forcing you to read it, much less believe in it, even though it is proven Science.

            However, other users actively seeking out my information and then posting it online, without my permission, possibly endangering my family, IS targeted harassment.

              @lordbearclaw No, you don't think it is harassment, that doesn't mean it isn't harassment. It is not about the right to post, it is about what you post. And I think the whole problem lies in that. You don't seem to see the charge of your messages. You probably really think that it is ok to ask a kid to post photos of their newly grown wings to proof it is real, eventhough you darn well know it is not real. I see that as creepyand I am sure I am not the only one. You seem obsessed with harassing these people just as long until they give you what you want, whatever that may be, because it is totally unclear to me.

              About this realness, did you also contact, for example, J. K. Rowling and ask her to proof Harry Potter is real? I guess not since that is fiction? There is really no evidence that anything written under these goals is anything else than fiction either. We don't know if the people writing these entries really think they are mermaids, werewolves, whatever, when they shut their computer down.

              You also seem really concerned that somebody might read it and think it is true, again, that may also happen when reading Harry Potter, or LOTR. Shall we destroy all these books and films? You seem to like LOTR, you also seem to re-enact certain battles that wouldn't look bad in that story. Do you think LOTR is real? Should I be concerned for you? I don't get why you are not standing outside the library and warning people that the works of fiction they are checking out didn't really happen. If that seems crazy, it is, but not anymore crazy than what you are doing.

              Your intention is probably not bad, but the way you go about is. If you are concerned about problems in this world, there are many problems to focus on; racism, sexism, child marriage, you name it. Use you dedication on one of those instead of problems that don't exist outside your mind.

                @rainbowssparks A work of fiction does not, in and of itself, "magically" subvert people's thinking. That takes a willingness to believe in the fictional world.

                A child, in school, claiming to have wings, or to be a vampire, or a mermaid, is easily seen by their peers to be telling a fantasy, and is therefore not taken seriously, and may even become the brunt of jokes and peer pressure that will correct their behavior in most cases as they grow and mature.

                Not so with the Internet - here, hidden behind nicknames and photoshop a person can basically claim to be anything they want. There are entire groups of people on the Net, both teenaged and adult, who engage in completely delusional fantasies to the point where they may create their own paranoid schizophrenic state in which they remain highly functional but can no longer discern reality from fantasy.

                As for harassment - again, it is not harassment to present the truth in any forum, to any group. If they don't like it, they don't have to read it. No one is forcing them to believe. But if the truth is not presented, if outrageous claims are not challenged, then we end up with a "fish in a barrel" situation where any dissenting opinion except what is popular is silenced.

                This is how people become enamoured of these fantasies to the point where they become delusions.

                  @lordbearclaw You think in extremities. Kids have always played pretend games where they are one person/thing or another. Some go through an entire phase of being with a specific group, just like here online, nothing new there. They turn out fine, I have no doubt that these kids will too.

                  In all honesty, I think you are better off without the internet. Nothing has changed, just that all the information is available. Kids are not that different from 50 years ago, the only thing that changed is that the internet can show us a much wider public, the entire world if you wish. Not everyone can deal with that, you are apparently one of these people.

                    @rainbowssparks No, I think in truths. Yes, out of all the internet users in the world currently only an incredibly small amount subscribe to these fantasies - but what we say here resonates into the future. Again, how many people grow up predisposed to believe in these fantasies because of irresponsible fiction, and then how many act on it in some way?

                    Take for instance the explosion online of kids, teenagers, and adults who thought mermaids were real following he Discovery Channel broadcasting the mockumentary "Mermaids: The Body Found" which was as much a real documentary as Star Wars was.

                    Following the show and for years after fully grown adults were contacting scientific institutes asking about the mermaids, to the point where at least one released a statement debunking their existence and pointing out the disclaimer at the end of the show that it was a work of fiction and for entertainment only.

                    On the old 43 site there was a user claiming to be 13 who posted "magic spells" to become a "mermaid", and one of those called for the rapid ingestion of at least 12 large bottles of water. Depending on the hydration levels and body mass of a person attempting the "spell" that would quite likely result in water intoxication, which can be deadly.

                    Left unchallenged these fantasies will run a course that leads to such things, as believers attempt more and more ludicrous acts in an attempt to fulfill the fantasy.

                    Are you implying that conscientious, ethical adults should allow such "fish barrels" without challenging the fantasies?

                      @lordbearclaw I'm implying that stupid people have always existed (see your own example of kids with superman capes in the 50s, long before the internet) and will always continue to exist. Taking away the freedom of others to 'protect' those whose stupidity will kill them sooner or later anyway is not an option.

                @rainbowssparks And if I saw a group that was proposing that the fictional works of Tolkien or Rowling were real, then IF enough people were choosing to believe them in the face of all rational and critical thought, I would feel obligated to post the physical evidence that shows that both concepts are fictional only and do not exist in reality.

                However, the paradigm involved in those concepts isn't necessarily harmful unless a person were to advocate actions that could be harmful, such as attempting to fly under a "charm".

                Don't think kids would do that? Back in the Fifties several children were severely injured by tying a Superman cape around their necks and jumping off their family garage trying to fly.

                    @rainbowssparks Most religion is predicated on claims that cannot be proven OR disproven, although some claims, such as Noah's Ark have been completely debunked. As such it lies outside the boundaries of Science unless it makes a claim that can be disproven.

                    The comparison is similar - "My God says I will be immune to snakebites" vis a vis "I'm becoming a (insert mythological creature)" Both claims are easily proven false.

                    As for the 1950's, of course they didn't have Internet - I didn't say that. They watched Superman on TV.

                    @rainbowssparks All good points, Rainbow. If anyone starts killing others out of his delusions, it's this lunatic. He's obviously on the edge, and has already admitted being responsible for one death.

                      @Captain Bones That is a lie. Unless you are referring to me killing a black bear in my teenage years. You are deliberately targeting me, individually, with direct harassment.

                        @lordbearclaw Probably just a baby bear, that in your twisted mind was a giant black bear (Show us the proof). And let me remind you, moron, this is public forum. Any delusionally perceived harassment is of your own making. Getting a little paranoid, aren't you, Brion. I guess I really struck close to home. Looks like I found the chink in your armor. You really sound like you're about to cry. Ahh, Bri-Bri, did the big bad pirate scare you? Better check under the bed tonight. Anyway, you can leave this conversation and this site anytime you like. Nothing is holding you here, it's your choice. Besides, my last reply was to Rainbow, not to you. As i said, very slow on the uptake,

                      @Captain Bones I'm going to leave it at this though. I tried to make my point, but it is not coming across. I do hope 43T will get a function to block people, or delete comments people post on your entries a la facebook. I can imagine some people want nothing to do with these kind of discussions.

                        @rainbowssparks You're right, Rainbow. Discussing anything with him is like playing chess with a pigeon: no matter how good you are at chess, the pigeon is just going to knock over the pieces, crap on the board, and strut around like it won. This guy is totally clueless and will forever remain so. Definitely beneath us and not worth our time and effort.

              @nekomoon That is a horrendous thing to say about my mother. You obviously have a problem with anyone who tells you the truth. Mermaids do not exist. Case closed. Humans have 46 chromosomes - we are genetically incompatible with all other animal species on this planet - even our closest cousins, the great apes. There are no hybrid humans of any stripe. Magic does not exist. People cannot transform into other forms, per Conservation of Matter, the Laws of Thermodynamics, and physiology. We can't even change the color of our hair on a whim without using a bottle of dye.

                  @nekomoon Interesting. What do I "hunt"?? praytell?

                  Do you have even the slightest notion how a real "hunter" team would operate if hybrids were real?

                  They wouldn't walk around in trenchcoats with cameras.... they would set up sites like this and wait for their targets to self-identify - then they would trace the ISPs back and gather physical address, ages, number of family members, etc.

                  They would move in late at night, first dropping sodium pentothal pellets in the house's air intake systems to make sure everyone was out, they would remotely disable security systems, take out the whole family, and set the place to look like a gas leak or other disaster.

                  That's just one of the ways a wetworks team operates.

                  If hybrids and hunters were real no hybrid would stand a chance. They wouldn't even see them coming.

                  @rainbowssparks Good. Someone is paying attention. Wondered if anyone would. That means you're reading, and learning.

                  Humans have 46 chromosomes, with 23 pairs. Only a few other animals have this number, with our cousins the great apes being the closest to us DNA wise, but the DNA is far too different for offspring to result, and that is an incredibly simplistic explanation, as many other factors keep us from being sexually compatible with any other species.

                      @rainbowssparks No. We learn all the time, even when we don't think we are.

                      It has been theorized (and supported somewhat by instances where individuals seem to have eidetic or photographic memory, or a form of superior recall) that the human brain biochemically records every single stimulus we are exposed to, from sights to smells to things we touch, to everything we read, or do or hear or taste.

                      We cannot access these memories usually, but sometimes a trigger event can bring them to the fore and is has been thought that this is what causes "deju vu" for some people.

                      The entirety of the human lifespan is a continuous learning process.

    Hey all! It's been a long time, and 43things has dried up. And is also a bit laggy. But that special website is still up and running and lag free! You know what website I'm talking about! Don't know? PM.

    Anyway, the community needs reviving. I know none of us have given up, no matter how many times a sanctimonious keyboard warrior & friends try to keep us down. The Special Community at that very special website is already full of merfolk and people like you.

    Basically I'm saying lets leave 43things, or what's left of us, and head elsewhere lag free and troll free. See ya there!

    .I have been working on this for approximately a year and a half (mostly been mental prep, getting more connected with my mer-self before I try to physically shift) and I was just wondering, do any of you have any tail/scale pics you wouldn't mind sending my way? I'd love to see them ^^

    Hey guys 🙂 I'm from the grow wings goal. Just wanted to say hi! (and I'm bored) I don't know if it's just me, but I'm a really good swimmer and I don't know if that relates to mermaids or if that's just me. (I swear that's all, I don't wanna bother you guys, especially with lbc infecting this goal too :c)

    Here's the problem with the idea that some humans have "genetic" differences from others: we are all, per the Genome Project, essentially ONE species, regardless of skin color, eye color, hair, height, weight, etc. etc. etc. We are all descended from a mammalian ancestor common to the great apes (our cousins, if you will).

    Follow the chart and you will see that humans have never shared DNA with fish or sea creatures, we are far too differentiated from our billions of years ago amphibious ancestors to ever regress that far.

    If such a genetic regression was possible, we would first become a species similar to our ancestor with the apes. Genetic regression simply does not happen within the space of a lifetime, to one individual - it is a process, like evolution, that if possible would happen over successive generations, over hundreds of thousands of years.

    No human is genetically half fish, dolphin, ape, rabbit, wolf, dog, cat, bird, etc. etc. etc.

    I like to say that, it deff. did NOT take me 1hr... it took me 90% of my life. Being Merfolk is about knowing who you are deep down. People of the water. You don't need to physically shift to be Merfolk. It's kool if you want to try but it's not necessary. Since I was at least 5 my FAV. MOVIE "The Little Mermaid" is what awakened me. Not in a Therian way, but I think because I didn't grow up in a Mer. Family that, it just made me so fascinated. I would sit there for hrs and watch that movie, for years and years, over and over... (it drove everyone nuts for years) because I would watch & picture myself as Ariel (still do) because I envied her! I just never understood why she would want to leave the ocean so bad... she has everything. When I was 6 (far as I remember) I would sit in the bathtub and play with a face-cloth instead of washing up with it and pretend it was me swimming in the water. Now that I'm older I even realize how crazy it is that I knew the correct way to swim even though I'd never swam before! Just the motion, like some dolphin or something. Ever since I was 7 and learned how to swim, well that's when it all started. Something deep down awakened in me but I didn't know or understand at the time... not until I was much older and became wiser/smarter. I have tried shifting, etc. in the past but ultimately seen no results. I actually am a natural and great swimmer... I surprise myself of how normal and happier I feel. I realized that my body has adapted perfectly fine for swimming, not deep water swimming but I'm fine in 20ft. water. Having a tail or fins, etc. doesn't make you a mermaid or merman or merfolk... deep down to your very core and being is what makes you merfolk. (merfolk know how to swim instinctively anyways)

    Now I'm not saying that ANYBODY can be merfolk, I personally believe that it is something you're born into being. Sort of like being homosexual, it's just natural. Except natural in a genetic way. A lot of the times I see what I call 'Fan-Merfolk', which are people inspired by social media and want tails and costumes, etc. and that's FINE, but that doesn't make you merfolk. I do however think- like any culture and the minor genetic differences that almost anyone could become merfolk if they wished.
