in order to prevent crying, it helps to understand why it happens. there is a chemical reaction that occurs when you cut an onion; you damage the onion's cells, and the enzyme (syn-ropanethial-s-oxide) that escapes acts as a lachrymatory agent. when that agent hits your eyes, it mixes with your tears to make sulfuric acid, and your tear ducts activate in an attempt to wash out the contamination.

so, that being said:

  1. wearing goggles is the most obvious answer. it may look a little silly, but it's the easiest way to prevent the onion's enzyme from reaching the eyes.
  2. sharpening your knife beforehand limits the damage to the onion cells, thus releasing fewer gases.
  3. spraying your cutting board with vinegar slows down the chemical reaction. it does, however, make your onions smell/taste like vinegar.
  4. always placing the cut side down will minimize the chemicals released into the open air.
  5. cutting onions under the kitchen vent will remove some of the chemicals from the air.
  6. and finally, try not to form an emotional bond with your onion.

if you want to cut an onion, get a very special knife that costs 2,000 dollars, located in a specific walmart in wisconsin (no  clue where but its somewhere), and then travel to nevada and find the nearest gas station in las vegas (near the sign), 
User Avatar

anonymous

2020-10-23 18:21:39

continuing the mission, grab the cutting board from the gas station and book a flight to mt. everest. climb to the top and cut exactly 45 degrees in the right diagnal line. then go back home and collect the cheap dollar tree knife and cut it back on mt

put a wet paper towel under it, the acids in the onion are attracted to wet surfaces, so if you put a wet towel under the onion when cutting, your eyes won't start watering like it's the end of the world!!

le like if you woul add then kick out the 0 and u will have 1.5 and 1.5 is bigger than 1.3
i would choose just putting water on it and then soap and then water and dry it.
it's really not disgusting
and if it doesn't work, try doing what kind of bath you use when you get skunked... taking a tomato bath.
you just have to resist.

wear swiming goggles, a gas mask or a space suit to keep your eyes in an air tight enviorment stoping the combination of hydrogen sulfide, sulfuric acid, and sulfuric dioxide, otherwise known as syn-propanethial-s-oxide that oinons release when cut from reacting to the water in them.
