Major Plot hole (spoilers)
 
Spock cries with one eye instead of two. Yes, I know, it looks more memorable, and since 1989 or so it's been a staple in movies, but who among us has this capability?
Illogic at its greatest. IS it possible?

He has a forked penis. That's not possible either but he's a Vulcan, dammit!:mad:

He tried to route power from one eye tear support to the logical circuits, but it ended up in his vocal cords.

One Human eye for the crying, one Vulcan eye for the not-crying. THAT'S HOW INTERSPECIES GENETICS WORKS, DAMMIT!

Do people walk around in daily life screaming "plot hole" at random things they think are wrong?

No, they just think they're being clever.

And cross-circuit to B.

Maybe the plot hole in his other eye is blocked.

When a beloved pet or lab experiment of mine dies, I cry. But I don't always cry from both eyes at the same time. Sure, they both get a bit watery, but gravity, variances in capillary action, and the vagaries of air currents often get one leaking well in advance of the other.

Besides, you forget Spock is half human. Clearly, that was his human half crying, as ITL notes.

A lot of Trek fans tend to moan at the smallest of things but how many eyes a characters cries from must surely rank as the weirdest :lol:

I know you're not serious.

But when you're crying, both eyes tear up and sometimes only the tear drops from one eye. Especially if you're trying to hold back the tears, happened to me at a funeral once without me realising it.
