First, make sure your ears are completely healed. You can cause a lot of damage if they're not. Second, most ear piercings are either 18 or 20 gauge [20 gauge is rarer] so a 14 or 16 gauge is usually a good place to start although it is recommended to go in order [18, 16, 14, 12, 10...etc.] instead of skipping sizes [18 to 14] Skipping smaller gauges is less dangerous than skipping larger gauges and can be very painful later on [6 to 2] and near impossible to do safely.

How much water should you use boiled 12 ears of corn?

Two inches. Use a hay box.ANS2That pretty much depends on the size and shape of your pot and the size of the ears. Put enough water in the pot to cover the ears. Corn tends to float so, either put a lid on the pot or turn the ears while they cook.Personally, I think corn turns out better roasted in the husk.

How small are goose ears?

Gooses, or geese, don't have ears. They have small slots that the hear out of on the side of their head. The size truly depends on the size of the goose. I know that Canadian geese have "ears" a centimeter or two in diameter.
