Can you cry in the Space? - Video

When asked 'Can you cry in spcae?' Chris Hadfield, the Canadian astronaut, provided the following answer as well as the video below.
In space, noses don't run and tears don't fall. Your eyes make tears but they stick as a liquid ball. In fact, they sting a bit. So, you can cry, but space tears don't shed, and the liquid from your nose fills up into your sinuses. We use handkerchiefs.
