This is a question The last thing that made me cry

I wept for my cat last week despite trying to be all hard and manly. What's made you cry recently?

It was on the bus
I read a story in the paper about the fighting in Sudan. It was about how soldiers raped a three-year-old girl to death in front of her family. They were more tears of mind-destroying rage than sadness, to be honest.

My new girlfriend has just got back in touch with her dad. They've been out of contact for many years for a variety of reasons.

Her family were very arsey about it for a long while.

Anyway, I would relish the chance to get in touch with my dad, but I can't. The old man died of lung and heart floppage 12 years ago when I was 11 (I didn't cry at the funeral, believe it or not). Safe to say I couldn't believe her parents' attitude and openly splurged my emotions in front of my girlfriend.

Plus, it turns out her dad is just like mine, which is mint.

eaurgh! Bunny333 is surely a mentalist.
I can see bunny333 killing someone with himself so they can "be together forever". Weirdo!

Last thing that made me cry? Celtic losing at the UEFA cup final. I did get to snog a tasty burd when we scored the second goal though! Before that, when I was eight I was kicked in the stones by a girl. With pointy shoes. All because I put worms in her hair... Tsk.

Granny in NZ
I have lived in the UK for about 6 years now and this time last year was home in NZ for my grandmothers 87th birthday. A fantastic family affair - 6 weeks ago I found out that she has high grade B Cell Lymphoma with a massive tumour growing in her throat - no food and nightmares of choking followed. She has had 14 radiotherapy treatments and on Saturday I spoke with her on her 88th birthday - still around and still kicking and I cried unashamedly in front of my friends....she is one rocking woman!!

You are quite correct. Thank god that didn't go ping or else surely I would've been bent in the middle permanently.

Mint Aero for whom so ever finds the correct medical term. My curiosity has been aroused.

It was...
... Elf, the American film comedy Christmas drama. It's just so beautifully acted.

sorry, I realise that looks Rubbish, but I have been up all night and read every page of this QOTW and I felt like sharing it.

The last time I cried proper then, was reading the last page of this QOTW and realising no fewer than 14 different films had been ruined for me. Thank-you to the one person who put in *Spoiler*

Not quite the last time
but perhaps the earliest, most serious cry I had was when I was young. I was about 10, and one of my Aunties got married. I remember going up to see bride and groom after the reception and seeing him my new Uncle getting changed for the honeymoon. “I’m your Uncle!” he said through ecstatic tears. He was a great Uncle, he always played the computer with me when he came over and treated me like a man, not a boy. I remember vividly we were playing PGA Tour on the megadrive, he had brought PGA over as he knew how much I liked playing games, and I offered him some Hubba Bubba, but he said no, he had a really sore stomach.

It turned out he had stomach cancer. Didn’t find out until it was too late and it killed him, only half a year after his marriage. When I found out he was dying, I cried for hours and hours and hours.

Paul, I loved you man.

I WAS going to write about the fact that I seem to always cry at the emotional songs in musicals, Disney films, whatever, and then I read this (http://www.b3ta.com/questions/crybabies/post29647/) and burst into tears.

Also, last year my Ma had to have one of her cats (Binns) put down. It was highly-strung, and had taken to gnawing all of the fur off of its hindquarters and nothing seemed to help it so she decided that the humane thing to do was have it put to sleep.

When the day came, my Ma was called into work so I said I'd do it for her thinking that it wouldn't be a problem as I'd never particularly liked the damned thing.

The vet asked me if I wanted to stay while they did it and I said yes, thinking that the least I could do was be there so Binns would have someone familiar there during her final moments.

Bad idea. As soon as the injection kicked in, she collapsed in a heap and the floodgates opened. Just remembering it now has started me off again.

I cry regularly when my bf has to go home after visiting me in London (he lives in Yorkshire).

And once, I managed to cry for eight hours straight. I couldn't stop, and thought I was having a breakdown. It turned out to be a result of overindulging in crystal meth...

Really random
Being a typical male I don't tend to cry very often except on random occasions at random things. I remember crying when Madge died on neighbours (not that i watch it) and the other day when i was watching crimewatch. Weird.

Very boring management training course
(Prince2 if any of you have similarly suffered). Our instructor was a serious South African woman who had a piercing laugh which sounded like Dr Evil from Austin Powers. She used to laugh quite unexpectedly. My mind was numb on day 2. When it's numb, it tends to wander. The guy sitting next to me put his little finger in the corner of his mouth just like Dr Evil when she laughed. I corpsed. I laughed so hard that I to stagger from the room with tears rolling down my face. Outside, it wasn't so funny. Tragically, it was funny again once I re-entered the room and I had to leave again. I thought my chest was going to implode. It must be like drowning! Neee-haarr-harrr-harrr!!

reading these posts
has brought me pretty close to tears - nice one to all those who were honest and open, bags of fleas and itching powder to those can't drop the cynicism even with the guise of anonymity to help them. When did I cry last? Listening to music and thinking about if I hadn't been such a pothead/lazy self-obssessed twunt my last relationship, with someone who deserved better, would have been better - I Loved You Rachel! I really did!

All too recently
When I realised just how selfish I really am compared with all those around me who always put everyone before themslves. I have some very special people surrounding me and I dont deserve any of you.

Cry, no, vomit, yes.
Please Bunny 333 tell me you are American. I will cry if I find out some Brit or Aussie can write so much unrepentant sentimental bilge without any hint of self-irony. Well done on finding a girlfriend and all, but there's a time and a place (and generally it's in private).
Edit: Awwww! No fun! When I said private, I didn't mean take it away. I'm sure Catherine wouldn't be pleased you won't stand by what you wrote. Let's have it back. I hadn't finished showing everyone.

I'm changing to a less depressing one.
Last night, watching Star Trek:Generations, at the end when Data found Spot after he thought he died, I had proper cry. *sniff*
Oh, here I go again.. he loved that cat! *sob*

....no excuses,no justification
the last time I cried was after having an argument with a friend about the bloke I'm seeing-He's got a girlfriend he's been with for a year and a half. I was telling my friend how he keeps telling me about his Lady,and even though she treats him like sh*t he still loves her. I said it made me realise that I meant next to nothing to him. My friend said I had no right to complain,as I wasn't his girlfriend.
Then I realised the reason why this was bothering me now,after months of not really caring what he did with her. I've fallen in love with him. And now I realise the only way I can even make things half-way right is by ending it. And it's breaking my heart. But I don't have a choice.

"I Don't Know How to Love Him," sung by my lovely friend Amber. Reminds me of school days. Something inside me just breaks.....

Should I bring him down
Should I scream and shout
Should I speak of love
Let my feelings out?
I never thought I'd come to this
What's it all about?

I just completely shut down and started crying at school once, I think I was still suffering from electrocution and smoke inhalation from earlier in the day, followed by being talked down to like a 4 year old, caused me to lose it.

breaking up is hard to do
Being dumped by my lovely man, and I still don't know why and if I think of his lovely ginger hair, I get all moist of eye

I cry more than a fella ought to but I remember the one and only time I did a pill, well, half of one...had a fantastic night and then spent the rest of the weekend crying in front of The Towering Inferno, Star Trek: First Contact and then that episode of the Simpsons where Maggie says "Daddy"

I was then non-functional for three more days.

I am such a lightweight...I'm not expecting sympathy, certainly not after following the heart attack post below....puts it all in perspective really. I can only cry at fiction anyway...

heart attacks
I was sharing a house with my best mate, who had some sort of chest infection, he'd taken a few days off work and we were sitting down watching the telly. I nip down to the chippers to get us both a bite to eat, and when I get back ten minutes later he was dead. Shit. He was only 25.

watching any movie where a nice car is destroyed
IE: most James Bond movies or other movies that use expensive cars in high speed chase scenes that invariably end up with the cars totalled.

very sad... *sob*

Love...funny old thing
I can sob at a film, I can well up at the poverty in the world, but when it boils down to it, its love that always tips me over the edge. The thought of loosing someone, the fact that you love someone more than you ever thought humanly possible but you can't have them, is it a girly thing...I think not! The more you love the more it hurts and the more you cry. That’s the last time I cried and it will more than likely be the next, but to end on a high, there are some brilliant bits that go with the big 4 letter ‘L’ word too, Im filling up just thinking about him!

Is it the thing to declare first post...well there you go.
