This is a question Desperate Times

Stranded in a hotel in an African war zone with no internet access for two weeks, I was forced to resort to desperate measures. Possessing only my passport and the clothes I stood up in; and the warning "You can catch it shaking hands with a vicar out there" ringing in my ears, I had to draw my own porn in order to preserve my sanity.

Alas, it all came out looking like Coronation Street's Audrey Roberts, but, as they say, any port in a storm.

What have you done in times of great desperation?

Chopping onions
You should leave the tail on the onion while you peel it and slice it horizontally, otherwise your onion falls apart and you slice your fingers. If your feeling really clever put in a couple of slices parralel to the plane of your chopping board for extra fine-ness (sic).

Recipe sounds great, not sure why QOTW has come to this though.

Okay, once I was so miserable I consumed a braodsheet newspaper in its entirety.

(in) despair I ate Times.

Storing them in the fridge avoids teary eyes. I chop the ends off, cut in half and slice each half while holding it in its original shape so that the surface area of cut onion is minimised to virtually nothing, further reducing tears. And using a big knife makes it quicker, too.
