    @icanhaschzbrgr Most methods of making them cry are highly and justifiably discouraged these days, so expect a price hike.

    Tap water too.

    I perferr the tears of innocent toddlers. Much more reliable and consistant. Virgin tears are only effective after puberty when the temptation sets in. 3 fake batches in a row was enough.

    Complete misunderstanding. There is a german loanword hidden in there. A Tennen-Toishi is a whetstone designed to be used in the rough environment of a barn's threshing floor, it should get along fine with whatever lubricant would have been available in such.
