Almost Stepped On This Little Nope-Rope While Shooting
That Could've Hurt A Lot
I work in lumber and had a customer shift a pile of 4"x4"x12's that my hand was next to. One came tumbling down right on to my fingers. I heard a snap and thought my finger had lost the will to remain unbroken, turns out my tungsten carbide ring caught the full force, broke, but didn't bend and potentially saved me a really chewed up finger. I'd rather replace a ring than a finger any day!
I found this to be one of the more interesting disasters avoided. The material choice made all the difference. If it were silver or gold it would have had enough ductility to deform rather than break, resulting in a crushed ring. I also found it interesting that if any deformation occurred, it happened exclusively in the elastic region. This makes me want to do 3 things. 1) Get a tungsten-carbide ring myself. 2) Get several tungsten-carbide rings and test them to see if this was a fluke or not. I personally don't think it was. 3) Explore other applications for tungsten-carbide where cracking would be preferable to a large deformation.

I once worked with a router and I accidentally touched the rotating blades with my pinky. it shredded the skin instantly but I was so fucking lucky because I only touched it for less than a millisecond and it didn't do any harm deeper than the skin. could have easily lost my finger or at least have my muscle/nerves shredded that day.
