sometimes. It usually depends on what kind of onion it is.

 All onions but green ones.

 Sometimes, when the onions are strong. I usually try rinsing the onion under cold water, and don't cut off the root end until the last, that seems to help.

I rarely cry when using Visalia onions (which I use most often), but almost always with red or white onions.

Sometimes.  I try to lean back when I cut them and that seems to help.

I just read on Pinterest today that if you put a piece of bread in your mouth while cutting onions you won't cry.  Not sure if it works but I'm willing to try it!
