Physiology & Medicine / Re: Why does holding a mouthful of water stop you from crying when chopping onions?« on: 04/09/2021 17:17:28 »
How about the head angle ? It could just be different strength onions, how diligently did you Cary out the experiment ?
Not that diligently, but now I'm tempted to go at it with a fully randomized, double-blind experimental design
I suppose the head angle might be a bit different just from having a mouth full of water... I guess I could test this by having e.g. a mouthful of food. The life hack was specifically about water for some reason.
I will have to report back the next time I chop onions.
