<@packrat> ugh, whose great idea was it to tie piercing sizes to wire gauge standards
<+indigo> i think it's a great idea
<+Stormgren> probably because piercing posts, are, to an extent, based on metal wire?
<@packrat> sucks for stretching though
<+indigo> it makes answering questions like "how much current could the hole in my ear handle, when filled with copper?" easy
<+Stormgren> LMAO
<@packrat> hah
<+Stormgren> that depends on how fast your earlobe can dissipate heat
<+Stormgren> otherwise you have to provide a earlobe derating factor to the wire
<+indigo> i'd think an ear is a better heatsink than air
<@packrat> yeah, bloodflow can dissipate heat to the rest of the body
<+indigo> it's liquid cooled
