´-_Why do we cry?:-(

Why tears?

Ive always wondered why people cry, usually we dont want to, and us fighting against our tears results in some really funny stupid looking distortions of the face. Well... Ive figured out why people cry, well no, not figured out, i have formed a theory as to why people cry. Here it is... Ahem hem... Let us begin our lecture... Certain situations, as you know, elicit certain corresponding emotional responses in us humans, eg. something good happens, you´re happy; something bad happens, you´re sad, etc. We feel these emotions because certain chemicals are produced in our bodies in response to these emotion causing situations (eg. serotonin is released into the bloodstream to give the feeling of happiness in response to a happy situation). When these chemicals reach a particular concentration or a specific proportion relative to
each other in the bloodstream tears are automatically produced whether we like it or not. You can induce the formation of tears by thinking about something that caused you to cry, remembering the feeling in the body that results in the formation of tears and reproducing it, poking yourself in the eye (haha) etc. It is also possible for us to suppress our tears (the mild ones though) The concentration or proportion at which tears are produced varies from person to person. End of lecture... So that is my theory. Biologists am i right?
