Do Tears Ever Run Out ?
« on: 06/12/2008 21:49:23 »
Dearest Cryologists,

See Angelina Jolie  here ?

She’s upset !...she’s been told that (yet again) I am unavailable and that she really ought to stop emailing and stalking my pen !..It’s hard to be a wanted sheep but as tough as it is , I am strictly a multi-ewe sheep !

Should Angelina cry all night and day........ will she ever run out of tears ?..or are tears continuously created to be shed as required ?

As a firm believer in empirical study I broke into my neighbours house at 3am this morning………restrained him to his bed and chopped up a thousand onions (I had to wear a helmet)…..four hours passed and his tears kept flowing…after another hour even I could not take it and so I had to leave…..My neighbour was clearly upset to see me leave as he was crying still !...awwww bless him !!.....
So, no answer there , and, as I can’t face returning because of the onion scent, his wailing ,as my auto-onion squeezer continues to squeeze the other 4000 onions I left, seems to indicate that my neighbour is still missing me …awwwww !!

So, do tears remain in constant production or does the body have a tear limit ?

Thanking ewe

Mwah mwah mwah

The odds are slim but yes your eyes can "run out" of tears. Some people do have to have artificial tears or things to make artificial tears for them. I doubt from crying that will happen though. You might run out if you are extremely dehydrated.
