No, Dogs Are Not ODing After Eating Fentanyl-Laced Human Poo

First there were police officers falsely claiming to overdose simply from being in the presence of fentanyl. Then there were the cops giving their K-9s naloxone for the same reason. But the latest fentanyl moral panic is a lot grosser: pet owners—and a growing contingent of drug war proponents decrying San Francisco as a dystopian hell hole—are warning people that dogs are getting high from eating the feces of drug users.

Earlier this week, a San Francisco-based reporter tweeted about...

Watch LSU players react to the new air-conditioned helmets for 2023

Ask any football player and they’ll tell you the toughest part of the season is training camp. Putting on the pads multiple times a day in the August heat simply wears you down. It was tough enough in New England, so I can only imagine what that’s like down in the heat and humidity of Baton Rouge.

That might be slightly easier for the LSU Tigers this...

After winning the Charles Schwab Challenge, Emiliano Grillo qualified for the 151st Open Championship, but he isn’t the only one.

A restored 1973 Ford Bronco isn’t the only perk of winning the Charles Schwab Challenge for Emiliano Grillo. He officially qualified for the 151st Open Championship later this summer. He isn’t the only notable name that qualified for the Open, as multiple rising stars and household names will now get to tee it...

Paul George’s impersonation of Charles Barkley is too good

This is SO GOOD.

It turns out that Paul George isn’t knocking down shots he’s knocking impersonations out of the park.

My only gripe with Paul’s take on Charles Barkley is that it doesn’t go on enough. This is a really, really good impression of Chuck — and he’s got Barkley’s unique pattern of speech down pat. Now what we need...

Google’s latest feature drop makes Wear OS more useful and expands dark web reporting

Illustration: Alex Castro / The Verge

Google’s dark web reporting feature — a service that allows users to run one-off scans to see if their Gmail address has been exposed to the seedier corners of the internet — is now fully available on most Google accounts across the US. It’s one of just a handful of updates announced in Google’s latest Android feature drop, which is otherwise looking fairly sparse as we approach the public rollout of Android 14 later this year.

So is this the week someone finally catches Red Bull?

F1’s European stretch rolls on, as the grid heads to Barcelona for the 2023 Spanish Grand Prix.

While the circuit in Barcelona is a familiar one for teams, it will look a little different this year, more on that in a moment. This is also the home race for both Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz Jr., and is the site of Alonso’s last F1 victory, the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix.

Etrian Odyssey’s new remaster makes me miss the Nintendo DS even more

Image: Atlus

When Nintendo discontinued the 3DS — and with it, the existence of dual-screen handhelds — I lamented the weird games we would no longer have. High up on that list was Etrian Odyssey: a line of dungeon-crawling role-playing games built explicitly with the handheld’s two screens in mind. They’re games where you fight your way through dangerous labyrinths and literally draw your own map to chart your progress. I had a hard time imagining playing them on any other...
