    Ring update: it's still there, still stuck although not actually uncomfortable, and has stained the skin underneath it green.


    So not only is it stuck on your finger but you've been sold a fake :D

    Time to go on a diet, chubby :)

    It's not coming off. It's not too tight, just won't go over the knuckle. I've tried soap, vaseline, fairy liquid, immersing my hand in snow, but the only effect was to take a chunk out of the finger next to it with one of my nails...

    Any thoughts?

    Hot water on the ring.
    Metal expands far more when heated than your finger will, might give you the edge. If you can heat the ring and cool the finger at the same time that'd be great.

    This post is full of fail.
    Metal does expand, but very fucking little.
    What he should do, is have a few beers until he starts pissing his brains out.
    If he loses some water, his finger will shrink.

    Works on can lids and I've tried it a few times myself, might give hime the edge. Anyway if it's the actual bone it's not likely to shrink from dehydration, if it's the tissue that's a really good idea and he should get himself pissed right away.

    Well, I'm sure he's got SOME soft tissue overlying his bone, unless banks employ skeletons. You really have to get quite dehydrated to affect peripheral tissue. The vasocontriction as a result of expose to cold would be easier. And safer.

    So far this thread has suggested extreme heat, extreme cold, doing nothing, using string and anal penetration.

    So seeing as we all seem to be guessing I am going to chime in with. Have a long bath and when your hand turns into a soft wrinkly claw, try and wriggle it off.

    Has anyone pointed out that St George is the patron saint of syphillis?

    I probably shouldn't ask, but do we get an update on this one?

    Hot, cold, soap or anal? Or a combination?

    Hand should stay cold longer than the ring, as metal's a better conductor.

    So - immerse hand in freezing cold water. Leave hand in freezing cold water for quite some time.
    Immerse hand in hot water. This will be very painful. Soap up the ring, and when it's nice and hot, try and get it off your finger.

    If this doesn't work, go to the hospital.

    It isn't 4th Century Greek at all, how many Early Christians did you get in Greece during that period. What did the bloke in Camden Market say to get you to think it was genuine?

    /art historian off

    Eh? Plenty. Greek was the language of choice for Christianity before Latin.

    but yeah, it's not really valuable and almost certainly fake. And still there.

    St George has turned green as well, probably due to the washing up liquid.

    Actually, if the ring is already ruined then I genuinely suggest putting some padding between the ring and the finger and VERY CAREFULLY cutting through the metal with a small hacksaw.

    Nuke the ring from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Ring's not ruined, just a bit daft on the wrong finger. I'm getting used to it to be honest.

    Whizzo is, of course, absolutely right though :)

    Slide a piece of thread under the ring, down towards your fingertip. Then starting from under the ring, wind the thread around your finger until you reach the end. A bit like a screw. If you tighten it, it'll reduce your finger size long enough to take the ring off.

    Now, I've read some of the stupidiest things in this thread.
    Here is how you remove a ring (I have very large knucles compared to my finger girdth, so eventually you learn a trick or 2).

    Water is a no no, because water cleans any sort of lubrification (that's the same reasion why you shouldn't have sex in the pool, the vaginal fluids will be washed away and you'll be burning rubber in no time).

    The best lubrification you have at hand is (wait for it), saliva. Learn with the porn stars. The best way to remove a stuck ring, is to suck your own finger (better yet, get some hot girl to do it for you), if possible covering the ring in the process with saliva. Make sure you leave saliva right next to the ring.
    Then, just rotate and pull it while rotating. If the finger dries up (saliva will dry up pretty quickly in this situation) suck again. Just do the same pressure you did to get the ring in. It shouldn't hurt much more to get it out.

    Would sticking it in a vagina work?

    Very relative. The vagina would need to have good lubrification (some vaginas are dry sometimes), and you'd have to make sure you'd get the vaginal fluid well betwen the finger/ring (a vagina can't get tight enough to wrap arround 1 finger properly to lube it completly).

    It'd be easier with saliva...

    When you say it's stuck at the knuckle, if you're trying to pull it straight off with your finger straight too then there will be a lot of excess skin there. Have you tried bending you finger to work it up to the first bit of the knuckle, then straight again and pull the excess knuckle skin back under the ring by pulling the skin behind the ring, then bend the knuckle again a bit, then repeat until it goes all the way

    Actually yea. It's a good piece of advice, specially in a "Oh shit the ring is stuck and I can't get it out". No one thinks of using their own saliva, and it's something you have available everywhere.

    Just suck it yourself man. Seriously. I use rings every so often, and I used to need olive oil every time to remove them. Sucking the finger and then pulling works better.
