after you make the first cut into the onion run it under some colder water for a few seconds. this will stop the tears.
For almost my entire adult life, I thought I was magically not affected by cutting onions. I could cut up a fresh onion all dang day and I never teared up. I thought, "well I just don’t have that gene".
Then I stopped wearing contact lenses and switched to glasses and that is how fucking dumb I am.

Don’t get too political on me. ‘Fight Club’ was about the awkward transition from obedient child to self-assured adult. Too often young people think that buying and owning things will make them adults, but those — sofas, etc. — are only the trappings of adulthood. The book is meant to show trials and challenges that allow an individual to build an internal sense of ability and accomplishment. The desire for possessions dissipates once someone establishes his or her skills and passion in the world.
