you know how space is really cool and you can float around and stuff? 😍
well, it turns out that it isn’t all as good as it is made out to be … there are a few fundamental things that you just can’t do 😳
#tdil that you cannot cry in space 😢 – well, you can … it just doesn’t work very well 😅
apparently it also really hurts … which kind of defeats the whole point of a good cry 😭 who wants those little tears of watery goodness to cause pain?!
the reason that you can’t cry in space (in the conventional manner) is the lack of gravity. you see, where gravity would usually pull tears out of your eyes and down your face, space tears don’t 🙃
instead, they just turn into balls of water that stay in your eye until they eventually get big enough to break free. the problem with this is that you end up with a stingy watery mess in your eye 🙄 … sounds pretty grim.
that’s not just a problem if you’re feeling a bit sad or hear an epic joke … it also means that if you get something in your eye, your body’s natural teary reaction will do sod all 😕.
not totally unrelated to crying, the lack of gravity also means that showers don’t work in space 😐 … which means that not only are you stuck in tight confinement with peeps for a real long time … you also all smell really bad 😅. the ability to cry suddenly seems even more important 😂
anyway, i think that’s enough for one day! this was a pretty amusing fact today 🤙🏻
have a gooden’ 😬 #tdil
