    Airline to put 'weep warnings':)

    Virgin Atlantic will put "emotional health warnings" on some in-flight movies after research suggested passengers were more emotional on planes.

    The likes of ‘Water for Elephants’ and ‘The Blind Side’ will carry the tongue-in-cheek notice, which advises travellers to "have tissues at the ready and to press the call button for a shoulder to cry on".

    ‘Toy Story 3’ was voted the most emotional movie.

    The airline did a survey on their Facebook page which showed that 55 per cent of travellers agreed their emotions became heightened on a flight.

    41 per cent of men admitted they’d hid under blankets to hide tears on flights, while travellers from Wolverhampton are most likely to join the "mile high blub club".

    Yahoo! Movies editor Kimberley Smith told us why ‘Toy Story 3’ could have topped the list: “Show me a grown person whose heart-strings weren’t pulled when Andy decided he was too old to play with Woody and Buzz any more. You’d have to be heartless.”

    She added: “Everyone loves a weepy film whether they admit it or not, and a long-haul flight is the perfect time to catch up on those films you secretly wanted to watch at the cinema, but were too embarrassed to ask your mates along to.”

    :D
    what ever happened to just sucking it up and not wearing one's emotions on their sleeve ?!!??:D

    One of my Mom's favorites:

    Mom: Are you crying? (or whining)
    Me: yes
    Mom: Do you need stiches?
    Me: no
    Mom: THEN YOU SHOULDN'T BE CRYING

    I love her for taking this approach with me when I was young.
