Doggie dentures: One of the more misleading rumors floating around the Internet this week was the claim that the U.S. Navy SEALs outfit their dogs with titanium teeth to make them even more ferocious. Spencer Ackerman over at the Wired's Danger Room was quick to dispel the myth. The only reason that a dog would have any titanium would be medical, he pointed out. Dogs sometimes lose teeth, and their handlers or trainers would have them replaced. But no one should fear these iron teeth, as Ackerman says: "Our proper reaction is pity for the creature."
