And they said it wouldn’t last!

Okay, so they technically they were right: After a, uh, fairytale 72 days of marriage, Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries. (Plan your new Halloween costumes accordingly!) While credit must be given to America’s royal couple for surpassing the likes of Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra (nine days), Britney Spears and Jason Alexander (two days) and Robin Givens and Svetozar Marinkovic (a reported seven minutes) in the pantheon of shortest celebrity marriages, here’s some other numbers to crunch:

  • Kim and Kris’ knuptials cost an estimated $20 million, which means that each day of their wedded bliss came to about $277,777.77. Worth every penny, no?
  • If the cast of Rent were to sing a song about their season of love, they would have to re-title it to the infinitely less catchy “103,680 Minutes.”
  • A $195 set of ice tongs, a $470 picture frame, and a $7,500 Baccarat Cosmos extra large vase. All completely logical items the couple registered for on their wedding that they will now have to divvy up. (I call dibs on the $375 nude black meditating statue by Lalique… but only because I’m still curious to know what in the blazes that is!)
  • Three wedding dresses. As you’ll recall Kim wore three Vera Wang gowns on the happiest day of her life. Check it out Kris, this guy has 101 things you can do with them!
  • Number of people who — because of this completely shocking divorce — are now jaded and no longer believe that love can conquer all: Incalculable

Who wants to calculate the probability that Keeping Up With the Kardashians ratings go up?

      Hopefully she had time to make a couple of tapes. That’s the only thing she is good at, pitiful ho.

      • Realist

        This oughta be great for the ratings. Ryan Seacrest must be on cloud 9. Kris, run for the hills while you can.

      • Gabs

        You are so mean. She’s an actual person you know.

      • Rupert

        A real person who will do anything for cash including bilking friends and family for gifts … . So yeah – real person but Im sure her new toys and cash will console her on those cold winter nights.

      • Gabs

        Don’t be jealous, Rupert.

      • PauletteB

        @Gabs: Obviously you’re a fan (poor you). There is no reason for anyone to be jealous of anyone in this pathetic family, whose only claim to fame is that their father helped set a murderer free and their mother married an Olympic gold medal winner who has a worse plastic surgeon than Kenny Rogers!

      • Gabs

        The only “poor” one here is you Paulette. Please, contiue to take out your aggression on people you don’t even know on these comment boards. We’re all really impressed.

      • Cea

        PauletteB… you speak the truth. Well stated!

      • Paul A.

        Well there you go, Paulette, Cea & the rest of us are all groveling at the throne of your mediocre sarcasm.

    • Michael

      And people are against two committed, loving gay people getting married…? It’s people like these two who are the ones that truly make a mockery out of marriage.

      • TK

        Michael sooo true about the marriage mockery and I don’t agree with it…this was a crazy farce, and people need to stop giving these idiots money…stop saying their name, watching their shows, don’t even tweet them…geeze!

        Wow, that comment shows a lot of hostility. Don’t generalize. I know two gay couples that married and both were divorced within five years (one couple had been together for almost 25 years).

    • Acaseofgeo

      Thank you Michael for pointing that out. It can never be said enough. Its the heterosexuals who are making a mockery of marriage, NOT gays & lesbians.

      • Lala

        Wow, that comment shows a lot of hostility. Don’t generalize. I know two gay couples that married and both were divorced within five years (one couple had been together for almost 25 years).

      • mis

        lala the one hostile is you. You know two gays couples? wow good for you so in other words you know nothing about gays couples. That is like saying I know two apples and therefore I know everything about them. Oh by the way in most states gays have not been allowed to get marry so you are lying about the time. Plus 25 years dear is longer than most Hetero couples stay together. maybe if you weren’t so hostile to gays you would have read the post as it was intended and seen the point and not rush to attack all gay couples because you know two. Fact is heteros can get married and always have been and there is a problem when so many hetero marriages end in divorce. Do you get it yet? Do you get many claim gays would ruined marriage can’t ruin something so many already destory get it yet?

      • Lala

        Obviously you can’t read. I never said hetero’s don’t divorce. Acaseofgeo said that hetero’s ruin marriage. Not just some, but THE hetero’s. So he means ALL hetero’s. That’s the same as saying gays ruin marriage. I have nothing against gay people, I support their right to get married (and adopt children). I was just showing Acaseofgeo’s hypocracy, stupidity and ignorance. FYI, I said I know two gay couples that married (and divorced). I do know more gay people who are in loving relationships though not (yet) married. BTW, I’m not American and neither were the couples I knew, so the timeline is entirle possible. There are other countries out there, you know. You are obviously the one who can’t read, is hostile, ignorant and plain retarded.

      • hannah

        wow. so gay people don’t break up? what a moron.

      • mis

        Hello, I’m mis and I’m a moron. F*ck me please, I beg you.

  • amy

    That’s a lot of $$$$$$$$ to waste just for her to get her name in the paper, magazines, tabloids…….etc! Now she’s getting divorced to get her name in the paper………etc. again! Kinda sad really!!! Maybe her husband wanted her to cook for him, and found out she doesn’t even know what a stove looks like! lol

  • Cain

    Kim Kardashian fans are so gullible. Tv marriage all the way. Now she’s getting “divorced” only 72 days later.

    She used him to make money off the wedding. They’re the real version of “Hung”.

    • Mr. Cairo

      Agreed – any anyone who watches their stupid show is the equivalent of a john.

    • AliB

      Soooo gullible…Anyone who believed this for a second is so naive. Kris Humphries reaction shows how he totally got played.

      • Gabs

        Anyone who reads articles online about the Kardashians and then trashes those who watch their show are soooo cool, and not hypocrites at all.

      • E!

        Gabs, you just keep on trucking. People will mock you, but you will stand firm in your beliefs in the show’s goodness and purity, and we will continue to make boatloads of money off of your naivete. Life’s good at the top.

      • Bert

        Oh, please, “E!”. Save your Big Brother conspiracy theories for causes other than reality shows. I know you’d like to think you’re quite the clever little satirist, but anyone with access to dictionary.com can spell naivete.

      • Squishmar

        Yes Bert, but we’re all missing the umlaut and accent aigu. :(

  • Gatto54

    So if your married & divorced in the same year, can you still file a joint tax return & get the deduction?!

    • JA

      If you both earn income, marriage actually penalizes you from a tax perspective.

    • Katie

      JA is correct. However to answer your question, no they cannot file jointly. They have to be married until Dec. 31 for it to count.

      • Edward

  • Douglas

    Kim Khardashian is divorcing that gorgeous, stupid hunk she conned into marrying her already? Hey, if she doesn’t want him, I’ll take him. Is this real, or a plot twist for their “Reality” TV show? See, this is what happens when you let straight people marry. Marraige should be only for gay people.

    • Abe Froman

      Right, because gay people never break up *cough*melissa ethridge*cough*

      • Silas

        Idiot. Ethridge’s relationship lasted a lot longer than 72 days.

      • jdr

        Silas Abe is responding to the last sentence.

      • Lala

        I agree Abe, just look at my comment above. Some people are just as intolerant as the people they accuse.

      • mis

        lala the one intolerant is you. You hate gay people and think it is ok for many to say they would ruin marriage while not allowing the legit discussion of how if heteros are divorcing how can gays ruin marrages that has nothing to do with if gays will divorce it has to do with either marriage IS already ruined by straights or not if it isn’t then gays can’t ruin it. Get it it you hate gays so much you don’t want them to fight back with sincere discussion wow now that is intolerant.
        I am yet I am straight female who find your comment bigoted beyond belief.

      • Lala

        Obviously you can’t read. I never said hetero’s don’t divorce. Acaseofgeo said that hetero’s ruin marriage. Not just some, but THE hetero’s. So he means ALL hetero’s.

        Sorry for repeating myself, mis, but so were you. I don’t think you realize that in your effort to come across as tolerant, you are completely intolerant to people who don’t share your views of life. You’re probably too young to understand but you’ll eventually learn. Don’t judge before you know.

      • @mis

        Learn how to spell.

    • me

      He’s not gorgeous.. and he’s an idiot. And he’s lazy. And he doesn’t seem to respect her at all.
      I’m glad she just dumped him now instead of waiting a year.

      • Natashasays

        Did you watch the show this season or the wedding special. I have had to watch that thing twice, (sister) I wait when everything is on one day.

        Kim kicked his family and friends off the guest list, cried when he broght his dogs. What did she think he was going to do, fake taking care of a dog for one show than get rid of it because it was sick. It was not sick, maybe it took money that E was not willing to pay. ANd Kim, you used the same excuse for marrying your first guy. I am a people pleaser. No one knew about the first one. Bet he did not like how you had to have your way. Your whole family is fake, Bruce maybe just baked from living with all you Kad’s that treat him like he is &*%^. I could go on but the guy wants his computer back, see how it works Kris.

    • hannah

      i think mis is mad because he’s always the catcher :[

      • Asuma

        Bonjour,une question des plus bueaqiss me vient e0 l’esprit : qu’est-ce que les relations publiques ? Bien sfbr j’ai ma propre re9ponse. Mais combien de fois j’entends dans le milieu professionnel : C’est fait pour vendre sous-entendu un produit -. J’ai entendu aujourd’hui : un partenariat avec l’entreprise X en vue de ge9rer notre image n’est pas de la relation publique. Alors je pose la question comme un enfant qui de9couvre la com.

  • Jen

    Instead of thinking of it as wasting 20 million dollars, think of it more as pumping 20 million bucks into this crappy economy and giving jobs to caterers, waiters, cooks, chefs, merchandise salespeople, etc.

    • Mary

      Don’t forget the doctors- esp plastic surgeons and gynos that keep this ho moving along. This guy should be happy and running for his life.

  • Pam Sejdija

    Im sorry for the both of yous. I have to tell you I was married 2weeks after meeting my husband. And it lasted 30 years. Marriage is something you both have to want and work at . You have to take time and find out why you fell in love in the 1st place. I dont think you both didnt talk alot of things out before you got married. Was it just to be married just to have a bigger and better wedding than khloe. To bad your listening to everyone else and not your heart. I lost my husband to illness but I not lonely lost my husband, I lost my best friend,my lover and a big part of me. Im sorry you didnt even get to fine out. Khloe found out. I think you might have but you didnt even gave it a good try

    • Banti

      wahahaha, natawa ako sa Canadians. haha. may mga killaa rin akong Canadians and yeah, nice sila. Hmmm I should ask my friends na dun na nakatira.Haha, ayan, parang nangsestereotype na rin ako.

  • Polly

    The people who are really stupid are the people who have made this family millions and millions of dollars for no damn good reason by watching their stupid shows.

    • Jeff Leese

      Amen. Can’t stand them, not a one. My wife likes to watch, sez it’s like a train wreck in super slo-mo.

  • KJ

    I’m not sure if she’s that calculating, that stupid…or just that much of a b***ch. Either way, the victim she is sure to play she is NOT!

  • chris

    Where’s LOL with his or her “America loves crap.” comment?

    • Meeeeeeeee

      HAHA!

    • Squishmar

      I think it’s implicit. ;)

      Hi Henk,Thanks for the remarks and oeninpg up concurrence! I was not able to find any known license on the concurrence website or the repo. I only found this on Github. As I am not that versed in the license-business I just named it Hyves to be sure. But since you say it is supposed to be MIT, i will update the matrix. Btw, this matrix does have a column ‘test’. But I agree that this doesn’t really say much.Benchmarking a lot of different frameworks is hard and i cut some corners here and there. Monitoring memory usage is one of them, maybe i’ll do this in the upcoming cross-language benchmark.

    • Sri

      I do like the way you have presented this patricular challenge and it really does offer me personally a lot of fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, because of what I have observed, I just simply hope as other opinions pile on that men and women continue to be on point and not get started on a soap box of some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this excellent piece and whilst I do not concur with it in totality, I respect your point of view.

  • callie

    These two make a mockery of marriage which only last 72 days and yet gays still can’t get married. The US should have a law where stupid people are the only ones that can’t get married.

    • Sunny

      Wait a sec don’t gays marry in secret? I’m just curious to know.

  • My son is also named Bort

    Well, what a surprise! LOL!

    Any time some schmuck would dare say that gay men & women would make a mockery out of marriage please slap him/her across the head & point them Kim & Kris’s way.
