does anyone know why someone cries. It suddenly seemed to me as crying is something of an unnatural activity, considering often we do not want to cry. What is the science behind it?

Its a natural thing that is why we don't want to but have to. Try to just stop breathing long enough to die. You can't help breathing and everyone knows breathing is natural, I hope.

There are many reasons like if something gets in your eye it waters to flush it out.
It also has to do with like hormone levels or something. The more extreme hormones going on the more you cry thats why you cry when your depressed, really happy, pissed off, or just really stressed. (this is all what I thought I did no research just guessed based on what I know)

Can you post that thing "This is funny, this is you" for yourself?

Huh. There's an interesting wiki page on this.

There are lots of theories:

1. Crying reduces the amount of certain stress hormones, so it's done to calm us down when stress levels get too high.

2. Crying is a signal of helplessness to elicit helping behaviour from others, since it blurs vision which is a handicap to any aggressive or defensive actions.

3. Crying is just an arbitrary response to inflicted pain or emotional distress.

Mine was kinda close to that. It was just less formal and more telling that when hormone levels get high then people cry whether it be from pain anger depression.
