Professor, why do you keep buying all that old rubbish?
What do you mean, Dr Knowles?
A yellow rubber duckie, half a roller-skate, giant underpants...
It is hardly what you would call rubbish.
BELL RINGS Positions!
This is Brain Freeze, with...
Come on, everybody!
It is time for...
Today's question is...
There are three types of tears.
Basal tears flow continuously throughout the day
to keep our eyes from drying out.
Reflex tears occur in response to irritants like dust or onions,
and emotional tears occur in response to sadness,
happiness or physical pain.
Tears are produced mostly by the lacrimal glands,
located just above the outer corner of each eye.
They are usually swallowed or become part of the nasal fluid.
Which is why we get a runny nose when we cry.
Any excess tears spill from the lower eyelids
in what we know as crying.
On average, we produce over 110 litres of tears every year.
See you after this break.
And we are clear!
Oh, you poor thing. Let it all out.
We had such good times together, me and Trampolina.
Bouncing at the Open,
the tumble in the jungle, the prance in France.
Now we will never bounce together again!
Maybe an inflatable duckie will cheer you up.
Not now, McCork.
-How about half a roller-skate?
-Stop it, leave her be.
Hang on a minute, can I see that box of junk again, Professor?
-I have an idea.
-An idea? Oh, I love them things.

So, tell us, Dr Knowles, why do we cry?
Emotional crying is unique to human beings.
It is thought to be a non-verbal way to communicate needs
and to let others know when we are in distress.
By letting other people know when we need help,
we increase our chances of survival.
So, is crying good for us?
Just like laughing,
crying is a critical part of human emotional make-up.
Studies have shown that most people feel better after a good cry.
Oh, phew. Yay!
So it's probably something we should all do now and again.
Did you hear that, Ms Hucklebuck?

See you next time, everyone.
Hang on, I've nearly got it.
Really, Dr Knowles,
this is the kind of bonkers idea I would come up with.
Well, it's our only shot.
Whoa! That's it.
Nice job, Dr Knowles. That actually looks pretty good.
Oh, hooray for you, McCork,
and hooray for your gigantic pants!
Now, there's a sentence I thought I would never hear.
Oh, what, the underpants get the credit?
Why do I bother?
