Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries Marriage Fail FYI: 7 Other Things That Take 72 Days

by Maggie Furlong, posted Oct 31st 2011 5:30PM
Kris Humphries & Kim Kardashian in happier timesJust over 1,700 hours, or 103,680 minutes, or 72 days -- that's how long Kim Karadashian's marriage to Kris Humphries lasted. Even their whirlwind three-month-long engagement was longer than their newlywed bliss.

We're not judging -- OK, maybe just a little -- but there are so many other monumental things that have happened and happen every day that are a much better use of 72 days' time.

Here, an eclectic list of things that take 72 days to accomplish, just in case these two decide to put things into perspective one day.

1. Sailing around the world
Inspired by Jules Verne, female journalist Nellie Bly sailed around the world in 72 days back in 1889. Around the world! On a sailboat! Kim and Kris just lived in New York for a bit and flew to Vegas and Dubai for quick vacations.

2. Filming 'Schindler's List'
Steven Spielberg's Oscar-winning Best Picture from 1993 took only 72 days to shoot. Not that anyone should get any ideas about putting Kim in an Academy Award-worthy film, but you get the point.

3. An epic trip from Cairo to Nairobi
Always wanted to see the pyramids? Ride a donkey? Watch hippos wallowing in a Kenyan lake? This spectacular trip of a lifetime takes only 72 days.

4. Re-living the true story behind 'Alive'
Remember that story about the rugby team from Uruguay that crashed in the Andes and waited what felt like an eternity to be rescued? It got the Hollywood treatment in 'Alive,' starring Ethan Hawke? The survivors made it through 72 days in the cold and snow ... and they only had to eat a few of their fallen friends to stay alive!

5. Making babies!
Well, one of the important steps in that process at least. The development of immature sperm to mature sperm takes 72 days. All it needs is a hot date with a fertile egg and voila! These two didn't even give Kris' swimmers a shot.

6. Art Sims-itating life
Like the Kardashian family, the video and computer game The Sims is pretty popular -- the franchise has sold more than 100 million games worldwide. The average lifespan of an "elder" Sims character: 72 short days.

7. Biking the Tour de France three and a half times
The Tour de France is an average of 21 days of racing each year. Kim and Kris could've gotten in better shape and saved themselves a lot of heartache and headlines by just biking that route a few times.

What else could Kim and Kris have done with the last 72 days of their lives? Share your ideas in the comments.

Anyone with an ounce of sense could see by watching the the last few episodes of the Kardashian "reality" circus that these two were NO WHERE EVEN NEAR ready for marriage. Kris acted more like a spoiled teenage boy than a man ready for marriage. Kim is more mature but I don't think she would know real "love" if it bit her in her substantial butt. She seemed more "in love" with the idea of the wedding and the gift registry and impressing Hollywood than actually preparing to be a married woman. I'm sorry that these two immature, spoiled young people WASTED 10 MILLION DOLLARS ON A "WEDDING SHOW". The main problem I see is that they don't know what real love is. They meet, date a couple of times and then the sex begins and then the "honeymoon" begins - LONG before the wedding. And often there's a baby thrown in there before the marriage. I'm sorry, but until young people learn the difference between LUST, SEX AND TRUE LOVE - these kinds of marriages will continue to happen - and not just in Hollywood. Women and men leave their wives and families to have these quick, lustful relationships - until they realize that the same problems they had in the old marriage has followed them to the new love affair - and it's usually YOU and your own problems that you bring to the new relationship. Rather than try and work out the problems in your current marriage - it's so much easier to just walk away and get into another affair - enjoy the sex and then move on again. Meanwhile you are screwing up the lives of wives and children and other family members - all in the pursuit of "love" - when you don't know what it is to begin with. Love is COMMITTMENT, HARD WORK, and taking the time to really get to know the other person and you cannot do that when sex enters the relationship too soon. YES, I'M OLD FASHIONED AND PROUD OF IT AND HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR NEARLY 45 YEARS!!! It has NOT been easy - some of it has been harder than you could imagine - but we have a FAMILY with grandchildren. I wouldn't trade that up for any affair or quick relationship in the world. It's just not worth it. The Kardashian's relationships have bothered me from the beginning - the way the girls talk to their mother, to each other, the filthy mouth that Khloe has - she seems to enjoy shocking people with her tasteless language and manners. Dad Jenner seems to be fighting a loosing battle all by himself to keep his family on the right track. Lastly, there's Scott Dissick. I don't even know where to begin. The fact that Kourtney has not married him yet pretty much says it all. He's arrogant, rude and so many other things - I just can't find the words for this guy. It frightens me that he will have so much influence on Mason. This family has a lot to learn about true love and what it means. The fact that Khloe found Lamar is a true miracle. He seems to be a really nice guy. The odds weren't with her, but she found a great guy. She needs to clean up her mouth!

Wow! How dumb do TV producers think we are? The whole entire thing was just ''staged'' for the making of the TV show and to make more money off each other and their self centered lives. The saddest part is the amount of
money spent and wasted for a TV show that must have been so artificial and shallow..... like the people in the show.

That money could have been given to help our wounded Military , Single Moms. Use a few million and help pay for college for a few thousand kids that have the real desire to do something with their lives. How about help feed some homeless people. Provide food for a year for a shelter. The possiblities are endless what could
have been done with that money that was wasted on ''putting on a TV Show''.... Just think what KIM could
do if she sold the RING how many people she could help with that money. This stunt may be the down
fall of their cash cow.....all their shows and products...... who would buy anything with their name brand now?
I actually feel sorry for them.

The biggest winner here is Ryan for pimping out kim the family in there fame. Who said there no white pimps out there this is nothing but a set up to keep them in the spot light . She should stick to making porn .

Who really cares, first of all the only reason why she (Kim) and her family is "famous" is all over some sex tape she did, he could probably do much better and we need people with actual talent in the entertainment industry....

What a waste- Lets not try to put a little effort in a commitment -- evidently not meant to be -- all the cash that was just thrown away-- and what a shamefull way to get more.

When are people going to snap out of this ridicuious fixation on these weak, unimportant and senseless individuals? It amazes me that so many peope show concern about a family that has done absolutely nothing worthwhile, nothing for society, a family who has no class, shows no respect to anybody or anything and because of a silly and senseless cable TV show, have drawn so much attention for absolutely no reason. It simply shows us how twisted and misdirected our society has become. SAD. REAL SAD!
