Yeah but like…how many inches is that.

I’m absolutely not downplaying the victims injuries or the situation, just saying: At first glance, “1.2 million sq cm” reads like a metric *shitload* of skin to my American Eyes. That’s roughly 1300 square feet, about a quarter of a basketball court.

Mom always said to not play near an *active* volcano.

Do they get the skin from skin reduction surgeries (formerly obese peeps)? Heck of a commodity to export. A lot of Americans do seem to have an excess of skin they could donate.
