    Sorry for the de-rail, but since you asked.

    Many people consider themselves onion-allergic. I'm on a Yahoogroup mailing list called onion allergy and we whine about onions every day. I don't think it is technically an allergy. It's more like an intolerance, like being poisoned.

    The compound that makes onions smell and taste like they do is called a sulphur analog. This is a strong smelling, unstable, and powerful organic compound with an oxygen atom substituted by a sulphur atom. Sulphur is just below oxygen in the periodic table.

    Other sulphur analogs include skunt scent, mustard gas, rotten eggs, and that stuff they mix into natural gas to make it stink for safety reasons.

    I'm not making this up!

    For onion-intolerant people, onions are just another nausea-inducing poison, like the above. I have no idea why some people react to them and some people can eat them.

    It's not much of a survival situation when you can name what foods you want available.....

    I would have 3 pigs (a boar and 2 sows) and 4 chickens (a rooster and 3 hens) and live off the eggs and whatever else I could scrounge until the pigs started doffing off little pigs. At the same time, one of my hens would be assigned baby chicken raising duty. When the day finally came that I had little piglets I would commence living like a damn king.

    ~ Chris

    When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.

    When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didnít understand the assignment.

    I told them they didnít understand life.
