There are horror stories of people who wear tungsten rings, the problem is the medical people cant cut them off if they need too. My brother one time was messing around with black powder, and chucking some into a fire, like an idiot. The fire jumped straight to the can of blackpowder in his hand, It blew up. Luckily he still has his hand, the problem was cutting the ring off with a crispy burnt hand. lets just say they had to rip his ring over his burnt flesh, to get the tungsten ring off, they couldnt cut tungsten.

not so, i knew a fella that got across 440 volts changing out a starter. it cooked one of his arms down to the bone and half his shoulder on one side, and three fingers on the other, and blew a chunk out of his leg. he lived and deid from cancer 40 years later.
