Just like you do with ogres; you peel the rotting layer of skin off and it looks as good as new!

There is a Swedish folk tale where an evil dragon prince is defeated by by peeling his layers off one by one until a human is found at the core.

This is because his mother the queen conceived him by eating an onion (because a wise old hag told her so) but omitted to peel it first. So all the bad onion layers had to be peeled away first.

Suddenly, I understand that one bit in Narnia now.

How do people come up with these ideas?

How do people get these stories and then pass them down to their kids until we get to this point?

I feel like "peel the onion before you eat it, idiot" isn't something that normally requires a cautionary tale to instill in people, but then again, people from northern climates are known to value layers.

As you may see, I tried to change my avatar today.  I go to the profile settings, paste the URL into the textbox, but when I go to save changes it defaults back to "don't use an avatar".  It's unclear what I'm doing wrong.

Remove the s in https. The forum doesn't like it but it should work just fine if you make it just http.

Guess that explains why "http://" is filled for you at first in the box.

You badly underestimate how poor some people's cooking skills are. :P personally the fact that onions are basically a case of "remove layers until they become tender enough to use" and there isn't really any real differences between the inner and outer layers other than toughness and how dried out they are still blows my mind from time to time.
