Light a Candle When Chopping Onions

To help stop your eyes from burning and tearing when you're cutting up onions, light a candle and sit as close to you as safely possible. Don't know why this works but for some it seems to provide relief.

Strike a match, blow it out and hold the match (burned side out) between your teeth while you peel onions. I haven't tried the candle method.
