A good example of why movies should be seen and not explained.. March of the Penguins/Emperor.. A lot of Napoleans' in this. ;)
What's your strangest bit of jewelry?
Scholars recently returned from New Guinea said they noted a lot of elderly natives there had missing fingers. Research revealed that it was the custom some years ago for a young fighting man to give his lucky girlfriend a finger cut from the hand of an opponent. And said girlfriend wore that finger on a string around her neck.

Can I give you a hand? Will a finger do?
That is pretty strange! ;) Like.. from the movie, or just randomly scrawled on it?
Eee. That remake is kinda awful.
I laughed so hard while watching the March clip, my ears about imploded under my headphones!
I can't remember the last time I wore jewelry.
But, a flashback summons a blue ceramic star the size of my palm, worn as a necklace.
LOL! Isn't it SO funny? I giggled. A lot.
Wow! I have a good friend that has some really awesome huge pieces like that. They can either be really great, or really not great, depending on what they're paired with. Hers always look awesome.
French TV is strange. Can stare at it for hours.
"Would you do me the honor of accepting part of my enemy's hand in marriage?"
The big one is, quite obviously, the strangest.
I have more...unfortunately, I've since damaged my knuckles beyond the point of being able to fit rings over them, so I don't wear any of that crap anymore.
WOW!!! That is one giant piece of jewelry!!! Impressive!
What happened that you can't wear them anymore?
Long story short, I got into a sword fight. Luckily, I missed the tendon by less than a millimeter (I was able to see my tendon when it first happened, and I thought it was bone...scary shit) so I fully recovered motor functions and whatnot, but it left me rather scarred and it left a bit of a...sort of permanent swelling in my knuckle. It also fucked up my pinky a bit, as the blade clipped the side and sliced it clean open, so after that disfiguration, I had to wear this long-ass metal brace on my finger, thus rendering me temporarily left-handed. After that, I just didn't really wear rings anymore.
P.S.: Disregard the nail polish. That's another matter entirely.
OMG!!! OWWW! A sword fight!?! Like... not just a friendly swordplay gone awry!? Someone did this to you on purpose?!
Well, my best friend bought some new swords, and we decided we'd just have a straight-up swordfight to see how they were in action, since we both dabble in that sort of thing as a hobby.
He decided to do some crazy fuckin' move that I was able to block successfully (god knows how, though). Unfortunately for me, though, I blocked a bit too high, and his blade his the hilt of my sword and just so happened to slice through my hand in the process.
So, I took a journey to the hospital to get my shit stitched back together.
The doctor was rather taken aback when I told him I'd gotten the injuries in a swordfight.
No doubt! Yikes! *hugs* Glad it was "friendly" slashing anyhow, vs. some huge ass fight in an alley with some mean renfester... lol
Easily the quickest reply ever, right there.
But yeah, I don't think too many back-alley thugs out there tend to carry swords, so I'm not worried about that ever happening.
It'd be a really interesting world though, wouldn't it?
And I'm swifty when there's insomnia going on.
All the same.. time to sleep now.
