How to take off a stuck ring

I ❤️ clever primate tricks like this: how to take off a stuck ring, by threading some string under the ring, winding it around the finger, and then pulling the string. It kind of “unscrews” the ring. Amazing.

And I’m always amused by the way my heart rate spikes whenever I struggle a little to get a ring off. How exactly does my sympathetic nervous system think it's helping in that situation? 😜
