    Use (the) force.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Update: same finger, NEW RING. This one is of Boba Fett's helmet, and is altogether chunkier. Updates and bulletins as events warrant.
    Beggars belief.

    The old ring came free eventually and was ultimately lost to an evening in New York, along with the heel of one if my shoes and much of my dignity.

    This I fear is a whole new ballgame. The band is much wider.

    I'll try turning it sideways but I think the best way might be cold water, patience until it's less swollen, then a sudden aggressive jerk.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    It's much more chavy than I thought it would be as well :(

    I'm going to give this the context it deserves.

    IE - none.

    Hold it over a flame, might get a bit hot but should expand the metal.

    If you remove the finger, you will no longer be attached to a ring.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Update: I have passed an uncomfortable night. However it just came off and ny knuckle looks a touch unhappy at proceedings. But anyway, success!

    You passed a whole night? I've had a dump that felt like a tree trunk, but I can't imagine what passing a WHOLE night would feel like.

    I read this thread through from page 1, thinking all the time that the reason it was bumped can't be because (1) it's still stuck or (2) you've done it again. Turns out this is the third time.

    LB, you really are a hapless fool.

    See you in 2014 or 2015 with a new bump LB.
    Can we nominate the ring to get stuck next time?

    I think this suits you.

    I don't know why you'd want to take it off - Boba Fett is regarded as the best bounty hunter that's ever lived, just ahead of Dog.

    @LeoliansBro Have you considered displaying your nerdery via necklaces in future, or is that just asking for trouble?

    The mind boggles actually. I'm almost too scared to Google "I have a 4th Century Greek Seal ring depicting St George stuck on my nob" for fear that LB has taken the real problem to another forum. :)

    It will also reveal the hidden description with instructions on reaching Mount Doom.

    Nah, it's safely off. And tragically a bit too Southend Bling to be worn on any but the most geektastic events (and even then it's massive).

    They had Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper and Chewbacca rings as well if anyone wants one :)

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I haven't had a centuries old Greek George stuck on any part of my anatomy since backstage at the closing ceremony.

    A map is like comparing velocity and speed.

    That's the one, but brass effect rather than chromed.

    (Also if I wanted to be pedantic I'd note it's Jango Fett because it lacks the blast damage on the crown, but I'm buggered if I'm wearing that antipodean cocksucker's facebrace)

    Bets on what style ring for LB next time?

    My money's on Dale Winton.

    Ooh...
