    buy one of them thing you chop down on and it cops into little pices ya woosss

    get someone else to chop it for you :lol:

    I've heard chewing on a bit of bread helps - I haven't found any onions strong enough to make me cry for ages... not that Pirates cry you understand

    Put a slice of bread in your mouth.

    Apparently, it's due to the smell so a peg would do better I think:thumbsup:

    what they called then sass?

    Breathe through your mouth and NOT your nose as the odour affects your nasal passages affecting your eyes.
    works everytime for me much to the annoyance of the missus :thumbsup:

    ermmmmmmmmmmmmm maybe an onion chopper:w00t:

    Didn't Brainiac say hold a piece of lemon between your teeth

    Simple solution....don't chop it! :lol:

    Ain't there something to do with a spoon that prevents you from crying?

    bite on a spoon while you cut the onion

    the things that hurt your eyes are the particles given off when you cut the onion are spikey and hurt your eyes when they go into them

    Apparently if you put the onion in the freezer for 30 mins or so before you chop it then that's supposed to help.

    chop it under water? not tried it but heard it somewhere

    put your head in a plastic bag. no, hang on, that could be flawed, unless you put on an aqualung first ;-)

    I've tried it, it works. :thumbsup:

    make sure you use a very sharp knife, that way the gasses are not reased in the same way because of the clean cut,:thumbsup:

    Deffo works! Chop it under a running tap. :thumbsup:

    Buy the JML slicer dicer splicer etc

    I wear glasses and/or contact lenses - when I wear my glasses I get affected by chopping the onion, but have no problems at all if I've got my contact lenses in.

    When I teach food technology lessons at my school, it drives the kids mad that I can chop onions without having any problems...just so long as I have my lenses in!!
