Are These Twitter Hashtags Actually Longer Than Kim Kardashian's Marriage? [Slideshow]

False: Kim Kardashian's infamous sex tape with rapper Ray J was over 30 minutes long, but Ms. Kardashian's marriage lasted 1,728 hours. We doubt that her other paramour, Reggie Bush, could last longer.
False: The first season ran from October 14th to December 4, which is less than 60 days, let alone 72.
False: Even within the reality of the film itself, most horror movies do not span over several months, let alone long enough to have the stereotype of the "black character dying first" be true.
Depends: If we are going to count every character as a "day" in real life, than yes, Twitter counts are longer than the marriage of Kardashian-Humphries by around double the amount.
True!: Ms. Black released her first single in March, 2011. Whether you like her or not, her career is still going strong.
False: Dora's half hour segments feature several "pauses," which, even when added up collectively throughout all the shows, would not equal over 1,000 hours of silence.
True: If you count from her engagement to the wedding (May 25th to August 20th) as being the time she "planned" the wedding, it is over 72 days.
Unclear: Any nerds out there want to translate Kim's marriage to how time works in hyper-drive?
Depends: Again, we're talking about time versus length or, if you prefer, number of occasions. However, if you were to speak out loud all the lies any human has ever said over the course of their lives, it may take longer than Kim Kardashian's marriage.

A trending hashtag today has been #longerthankimsmarriage, referring to the 72 days during which Kim Kardashian was married to Kris Humpries, as compared to other relatively short occurrences. We went through Twitter and made sure no one was bending the truth on the Internet.
