People generally think pretty highly of brain surgeons and their intelligence. Like, if you want to say something's easy, you say "It doesn't take a brain surgeon" to do it. But this guy might singlehandedly ruin that reputation.
Dr. Steve Carr is a brain surgeon in Denver, Colorado. Last month, he and his girlfriend Mary were on vacation in Naples, Florida . . . and he wanted to propose to her.
So he decided to BURY the engagement ring in the sand, take Mary to the beach, dig up the ring, and propose. But when they got to the beach . . . he couldn't remember where he'd buried the ring.
We're not sure if he didn't mark the spot or what, but when he couldn't find the ring, he started digging. So he told Mary what happened, and SHE started digging. Then OTHER people on the beach started digging. But no one could find the ring.
After two hours, they went online to find a local 'ring finder'. Yes, there's actually a nationwide 'Ring Finder' network that handles this kind of thing.
A guy named Larry Spearing showed up with a metal detector, and was able to find the ring. There's no word on what he charged. Steve proposed to Mary, and for some reason she still said yes.
