I spent the weekend in Oxford, which is 2 hours drive from where I live. We had good music with us, so we didn’t mind when we went on the wrong motorway and the drive back actually took us twice the time… we talked about this and that and at some point a friend of mine said that he hadn’t cried since he was a child.
Last week I had a bicycle accident and I had a bad shock. I got really confused and my shorttime memory went, which is when I realized my face was wet… Why do we cry?
Surely it is some kind of pressure relieve, but there must be a physical reason? Why do our eyes water when we get hurt, or are in shock, or are simply sad?
Biology student anybody?
