    One other use I failed to mention is finding small hooks that fall off the tying table into the berber carpet... damn thing has paid for itself twice over :D.

    You just answered freestoneangler's question. Rings fall off swimmers' fingers because the (often) cooler water temp causes the skin to contract a bit, decreasing the diameter of the swimmers' fingers.
    I had a beautiful silver ring inlaid with abalone that a girlfriend had given me, and although getting it off my finger was usually an ordeal, one day it just went flying off when I was swimming out thru the surf at Makapu'u.:eek: I lost points for that!
