Keeping your emotions under control is not always easy even for the toughest of guys. Watch the video below of football player Michael Sam’s reaction when he found out that after openly admitting that he was gay, he got drafted to the Saint Louis Rams.
Did you know that according to research that we reported on in a Past Blog crying tears, for emotional reasons, is a trait unique to humans. Michael Trimble, British professor at the Institute of Neurology in London, notes if only humans cry emotionally then there must have been a time in human evolution when tears took on an additional meaning to their hitherto biological functions, namely as a signal of distress, and a cipher for suffering.
In Another Blog, we commented on the emotional stirrings that many of us report having on airplanes. In 2011, Virgin Atlantic ran a survey asking customers to describe their on-flight emotional experiences. Overall, 55% of travelers said they had “experienced heightened emotions while flying,” and as the stunning statistic previously mentioned, 41 % have also shed some in flight tears.
