Bye Bye, Dry Cry

Did you know that newborn babies don't produce tears when they cry? Little i just the other day produced her first actual tears. Funny huh.

Reading about this led me to discover this fact--

'According to a study of over 300 adults, on average, men cry once every month, and women cry at least five times per month'(1)

which proves another fairly well-known fact--

'Girls are weak, chuck em in the creek, boys are strong, like King Kong.'(2)
