I think we're talking about different ratios Mine was ratio of the length of the chain to the distance of the circuit, where a 1:1 ratio is plausible. My palm will stay firmly away from my face.

I think I'm more likely to damage my fork hitting a unicorn than I am to actually get that exact ratio.
