My advice to you is stop trying to come up with answers and solutions
on your own.
Simply ask the questions. Offering up your theories only makes you
look foolish, and people will think you are a troll...

On the subject of your cord, you should have noticed that a 12 gauge

same length. You should have also noticed that a 14 gauge cord is MORE
EXPENSIVE than a 16 gauge cord of the same brand and same length. Such
information should tell you that there is something more to the choice
than picking a higher number.
Pay attention to small details like that. They can tell you a LOT
about how things work without you ever having to ask a single question.
