Onions and tears

As we cannot avoid to water our eyes when we peel onions, many people tried some tricks to avoid the tearing eyes. But as it seems, no one helps. Personally, I use diving glasses when peeling onions. Do you have any special trick to avoid the tearing eyes or do you don't mind?

Peel the onions under cold running water and not more tears is what works for me.

Chew a gum while peeling onions.

It works for me and is not too expensive.

I usually put on my glasses to keep from crying but someone suggested putting a tooth pick in your mouth while you peel the onions. I haven't tried it yet but my friend says it works
