I vaguely remember reading some references to the amount of current
you need to be concerned about.  IIRC, it was something on the order
of 200mA for DC (which thanks to skin effect is lower than AC).

It seems to me that since it's electricity that fires up the nerves,
that'd be the most efficient pain generation means.  The alternative
would be to trigger specific effects: sharpness, pressure, heat,
etc...  What'd be cool is to be able to directly stimulate those
nerves without actually causing the effect.

You can't change an individual, but you can change the world.
