As the news spreads about Kim Kardashian and her 72 day marriage, I got to thinking about all the things that last for longer than 72 days. Before I get into that, lets look at how long 72 days actually is…

72 Days:

2.4 months

10.28 Weeks

1,728 hours

103,680 minutes

6,220,800 seconds

This is 72 Days.

So, what other things last at least 72 days? Well, I can think of a few.
