But I vaguely recalled sailing on a ship from Kagoshima to Okinawa
in 1980, more than thirty years ago. What I think is, yes, there is a big possibility that this tragic event
happens for a reason or just a test of faith.

But then it must be said, we are totally unaware of what the Bajoran stance on death and reincarnation is, it may be that there is a Bajoran form of karma
(based no doubt on the person’s “pagh”) which
could lead to you being born into a better family and so a better caste.

I will alway cut my child’s grapes , tom, and hot dogs until he is 18. It does help to prevent chocking to death it allows air to push the lodged food out of the wind pipe! With out it being cut it’s like a plug.

Nicole Taylor 8 months ago

I don’t think I ever considered cutting them. I used to bite them in half and give smallest portion to my daughter when we ate them. She’s 5 now and tries to do this to me by handing me soggy squished grape halves lol.

Christi Monson 8 months ago

I know it’s crazy, but I just put the damn things in those net bags until my daughter was able to biter them herself, and I gave her the whole grapes. I remember eating whole grapes my entire life as a kid and never choked.

This technique was shared to save children (and parents) from mess, discomfort and choking. The grape is still in the same length, and DOES NOT terminate the chances for choking.

It’s all about the cherry tomatoes for me! Much easier to eat them cut in half than trying to spear one with your fork, and smacking the person across the table in the head with it.

Angela Heid 8 months ago

Wow. Impressive. But I prefer my grapes in liquid form.

If it requires tedious work to cut it so they don’t choke, then they don’t get it until they’re old enough not to choke. Just can’t handle it!

You know the only way I’ll ever cut grapes again? (Even if I use this method.) After cutting garlic with the knife. That little bit of garlic flavor on the grapes is amazing. It’s sort of like a little salt on watermelon, or baking bacon with a little brown sugar on it. A sweet/savory thing.

Stephanie 1 year ago

One of my students (in culinary school) was bragging about this method of cutting cherry tomatoes in class one day. He didn’t believe me when I told him it’s no faster than cutting one tomato at a time so I challenged him to a race. I cut 14 tomatoes in the same time it took him to cut 11. (And I went easy on him since a student versus experienced chef isn’t exactly a fair race.)

I’ve doing this for years, also cherry tomatoes and olives. To chop a bunch of hard boiled eggs for potato or other salads, take one of those old fashioned French fry baskets with the square holes and push the eggs through the holes into a bowl. I always use short cuts like these. Anyone looking to hire an efficiency expert?

We cut grapes to reduce the choking hazard. A grape cut in half is still the same diameter if it gets sucked into the windpipe (although, now you only have a 50/50 chance of a complete obstruction…that’s still a huge improvement). I cut them in quarters to eliminate the choking hazard. This trick is great for salads and for kids above the average choking ages. 1 year ago

FWIW. Toddlers can choke on ANYTHING. You just have to watch your children closely. Grapes cut in half for toddlers is perfectly fine. If you’re cutting your grapes and hot dogs and other things and then walking away from your child, you’re still putting them in danger.

This is genius but just cutting grapes in half for small children isn’t safe. You might as well just leave them whole since they are still circular and can cause choking just as easily as a whole grape. They should be cut into 4’s to eliminate the circle shape which is what occludes the air way : )

While this is quick and great for grapes, if you want to keep the innards of grape/cherry tomatoes from oozing out (if tossing in a salad for example), it is best to cut them vertically (through the spot where they were attached to the vine).

Yea except even cut in half grapes are one of the leading causes of choking in toddlers. They should be cut in quarters. Still a time saver. However are you serious about not cutting them at all because your kid will still eat more than a few at a time? Still need to try to cut the chances of your child choking! (No pun intended) lol smh

I had a grape lodge in my esophagus. I am 54 and after I was given a muscle relaxer the docs pronounced it had passed. It had not. After struggling to swallow for three days they did an emergency esophageal scope and poked the grape into my stomach. It was all frightening. I was talking and swallowed the thing whole.

Grapes and hotdogs are the most common choking hazards for children — that’s why the should be cut — for those of you who aren’t aware. And when you’re cutting, make sure that your dogs don’t get any pieces. A grape or two could kill a small dog.
