Ever hate peeling strong onions because they make you cry? Well this simple no brainer tip will keep that from happening ever again and you don't have to have any special tools or do any ridiculous thing other than this:

Before peeling your onion, take off the outer skin like you normally would do. Slice your onion in half and rinse the cut side under cold water for a second or two. Now you can chop your onions tear free!
Another way to keep from crying if you don't have water near by is to place onion halves cut side down on a wooden cutting board. The wood absorbs the juices that would have become air born before they make it to your eyes!
