Simple arrangement of molecules of water, salt and co. Produced and secreted by some stupid gland. Commanded by another stupid part of the brain. Mostly used as a good weapon against men.
Emotions might have played a huge role right from the times when men started to evolve. Many men are stupid enough to fall for the tears of an un assuming, innocent- and what not - lady. I say stupid because, all the while when they(the women of the species) are coming into terms with what ever made them cry, men run and try hard to stop them tears.
Tears are supposed to be rolled, and when they do, it has to be a good sign. So next time you see an "innocent (aargh)" girl with her eyes wet, just feel happy and do nothing - all the while she is coming into terms with what has happened to her, why do you have to create a new problem inside your brain for no reason??!!
I am expecting a couple of feminist - birdbrain comments on this one - yes, men do cry, I admit, but not when someone dies in a soap opera!!
