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?

people get p*ssed when people don't answer the question and when people reply to other people - so shut the feck up. That goes for me too.

His dark materials
Saw this onstage at the National Theatre 2 years ago. Though I don't agree with Philip Pullman's beliefs on dwath and the after-life, I found the second half of part 2 intensely moving and spent it trying not to blub.

I was two rows from the stage...

I had reall shity days at work in a row where nothing went right for me and everyone was angry at me. My insomnia came back and so I was tired as well. Then finnaly I woke up this morning and got my period and relised that is why every thing has been so crappy this week. And then proceeded to bawl my eyes out over the injustice of the female hormonal cycle and it's effets of it on my quality of work.

My Wedding Day
I cried three weeks ago this Saturday when I saw my wife-to-be walk into our wedding. She looked fantastic and I am so happy I married her.

Does anyone else think it's a bit weird that on a thread where so many people have posted silly joke answers, that others seem to feel the need to post such genuinely sad things?

A pregnant friend of mine came in today
She was crying. It made me cry to see her all teary eyed. Her pregnant belly bouncing.

death of radio
As an expat brit in New York, I used to listen in to two familiar voices on the beebs real audio feed, my fellow NY brit, Alistair Cook and of course John Peel. While the first death was a one time affair, Peel's death has a number of musical associations which still seem to make a tear well, when I hear 'teenage kicks' or 'does this train stop on mersyside?'.
I remember Peel mentioning he had started to weep more frequently as he aged, certainly something I have found too, and unlike youthful tears over pain or lost love, I actually quite enjoy a good cry induced by music or film these days. The "captain my captain" scene in dead poets society does it for me :-)
Apologies for the usual.

joy and pain
I think this thread is a lovely mix of humour and human sadness . . . . may the two be forever close . . . .

Too much nowadays . . .

I cried at the end of Final Fantasy X on PS2 when Tidus jumps off the ship. The song Suteki Da Ne from the game always brings a lump to my throat even though it's in Japanese and I don't know what she's going on about.

What makes us cry...
This board does have many sad things on it, true, but it is possible to cry both with laughter, idiocy and genuine happiness (all of which I've done in the not too distant past). Whilst it may seem insensitive to put inanities up here amongst hardships and tragedies, they're just answering with honesty, and maybe even trying to cheer people up.
So! To cover the bases, here's my 2 pence.

The other day I heard a joke with the punchline "I bet you've had a cockatoo in there..." what made me cry was the wholly inappropriate nature of the joke given that it was a pupil at the school where I work. Just brilliant!

On the sad front, Michael Howard bringing up the hot potato of abortion- seeing pictures of perfectly formed fetuses that are legally aborted. Not that I'm anti abortion, but thats a whole other kettle of fish.

And to end on a good note, when I'm with my girlfriend I get quite emotional, few drinks later and I've been known to be a happy blubbery little bunny. Sometimes even without the drink too ;) Maybe as I get older I'm appreciating stuff more, or getting in touch with my feminine side- I'll be wearing women's clothing before I know it. Actually, been there, done that, and made a whole lot of people cry.

Funny old things, emotions coupled to physiological processes, aren't they!

In a bit.

Oh yeah, and music too, especially Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah. Absolutely guaranteed to bring a tear to anyone with a sense of emotion, even more so when on your tod.

I like reading more adult-oriented comic books
I read "The Maxx" recently and cried towards the end of it when all the characters start to go away
