Maria & Arnold calling it quits after 25 years

Another iconic marriage is over

I can’t believe she didn’t call me.

25 years is a pretty good run. Nothing really newsworthy, though I might note perhaps she waited until her father Sargent Schriver died before divorcing, to not upset him.


Marriage Amateurs

My parents just enjoyed their 65th anniversary

It’s hard to come down from high positions of power. Maybe that was the straw.

I live in a very popular white water rafting area near Coloma in N. California and know some of the guides who take people down the American River here. One day, before he was The Governator, Arnie took the trip. According to the guide, he was quite the obnoxious, rude celebrity, berating other rafters because of their body shapes and so on. Granted, that’s second hand information but I never liked the guy after I heard that.

I suspect they’ve been in trouble for a while. I think that her parking in red zones and other blatant disregard for minor laws were passive aggressive swipes at him.

I really thought those crazy kids would make it!

It’s not easy to have two cyborgs in the same household, having to share the same power supply, disagreeing about the merits of Wireless USB vs. Bluetooth, and fighting over who gets to carry the phased plasma rifle on Thursday. There is also the difficulty in homologation between TUV and UL safety and grounding provisions that can often create fundamental requirement disconnects between units built in different countries. One can only imagine the confusion of children trying to respond to incompatible communication protocols and firmware architectures, so this may be all for the best.


One of my mom’s friends dated Arnold back in the 70s or early 80s (that is, one date). She thought he was an ass then. Thought maybe he grew up, but maybe not.

What, he called them Girly Men?

Don’t worry, she’ll be back.

The red zone is for loading and unloading.

I guess Skeletor finally defeated He-Man.

No, the white zone is for loading of passengers and there is no stopping in a red zone.

Hasta la vista, Baby!

winner :smiley:

Guess she didn’t want to stick around.

The red zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the white zone

Listen Elendil’s Heir, don’t start up with your white zone shit again.

I don’t know if divorcing a Kennedy is a good thing…that family plays rough…I’m just saying.
