    I had a class ring for a while in high school, but didn't wear it much. The only thing I wear (and it's on me all the time, nearly 24/7) is my watch.

    Same situation here, Altairion. Had a class ring in hs but didn't really wear it much.

    Today I don't wear jewelry of any sort--not even a watch. I'm one of those freaky people who kill watches by wearing/handling them. I remember even zapping several watches belonging to my very first girlfriend, maybe because she would always ask me to set them for her.

    (anyone know anything about this phenomenon?)

    Hi,

    I wear silver almost exclusively. I have two Navajo split cuffs, two split rings and two earings which I wear almost daily.

    A silver ring with the Greek symbol for good luck and a silver bar through my tongue, that's all.

    Two silver pendants on leather straps I am rarely seen without, which carry very serious emotional/spiritual qualities for me. Two nipple rings or barbells. Generally a watch. Prince Albert ring or curved barbell and once in a while the barbell that goes in my frenum piercing. Sometimes a bracelet or leather wrist strap. Other than that? Not much. Every piece of jewelry or body jewelry holds special meaning or marked a life passage for me. Like today, I wore my late fathers watch. Dunno, just odd in my relationships to animate objects, huh? And waaaaayy too much info.

    PS; and sometimes other kinky shit we won't mention in polite company. :evilgrin:

    Yes, I have it as well. Something about the electricity in my body zaps the batteries out of watches, jams copiers and fax machines, shorts out small office equipment at very odd rates. I've had to replace the five year battery three times in my watch in the last five years, as well as have some work done on the circuits. Stubbornly, I keep wearing the darned thing, it's the first decent watch I've ever had and I've made it work for over ten years. Also wear my mother's birthstone ring and a compliment pinky ring I had made to go with it, and now my nose ring.

    I just wear a watch. I used to wear a signet ring with my initals on it, but when I play the piano or the organ, it always turns and starts to "clack" against the keys, so I ended up always taking it off. I just ended up leaving it off more than I wore it, so now I never wear it.

    Wow, that explains a lot for me. Everyone at work (myself included) jokes about how they'd better get to the copier before I do because almost invariably I'll jam it or cause it to react in some insane, all-lights-flashing-and-beeping-like-the-end-is-near kind of way. Funny, because I've always been pretty comfy with tech stuff and never had many PC problems.

    (famous last words, there....)

    Wow, I've never heard of anything like that, but it sounds kinda cool if you two could learn to do tricks with your mutant powers :)

    Jana, I'm amazed that you can make a watch last 10 years despite needing to change the batteries. Over the past four years I've had 2 watches, one needed to be replaced because I screwed up the band playing football, and my current one already had a band replaced after it fell apart and now the seal on the watch face isn't solid so there is moisture on the inside. It's already flat out stopped twice in the past two days, so this watch is probably goin to the graveyard soon.

    my watch has been working fine for 10 years and I've never needed to change the batteries.

    It's funny now, but years ago when technology was newer I really resented the implications that I just didn't know how to run simple office equipment.

    The watch is a Tissot waterproof watch I got in the Bahamas, it's been to the depths of the ocean with me as well as worn frequently in the shower. I was told after the circuits were rewired that it is no longer waterproof, but it's still a reliable timepiece as long as I get a five year battery about every two years. I have very high iron in my blood, nobody knows if this is a contributing factor, but it's the best guess I can come up with.

    Not much, and what I do wear is natural, like hemp and shell. I've never been a fan of metal.
