All tag results for 'machine'
Chalk this day up as a wash.
A father and mother in an inspired attempt to teach their toddler son a lesson put the small child in a washing machine.
When the machine auto locked and the wash cycle began, these terrible parents realized their kid was trapped inside and did what every parent has done at least once - they panicked.
Watch the semi-comedic, semi-horrifying, and semi-just-plain-absurd video (above) !
It's one hell of a ride.
In order to lose weight, you have to REALLY want to lose weight. Aretha Franklin admits although trying to lose weight most of her life, she "didn’t know how to lose weight.”
Recently, the singer has begun an incredible transformation and lost 85 pounds, leaving people to speculate that she may have surgery to thank.
In actuality, she should be thanking an embarrassing accident! In an interview, Aretha revealed that she BROKE an exercise machine at her heaviest, which spurred the revaluation that she was "just to heavy."
She explained the accident, saying:
“I had a Power Rider that I used for exercise and I actually broke it — I was that heavy. I didn’t know how to lose weight.”
Besides the actual epiphany to R-E-S-P-E-C-T her body, the singer credits good old fashioned healthy exercise for her weight loss, saying:
“I’m on the track at least three times a week, and the treadmill. I’m up to about 26 minutes on the treadmill and a mile and a half on the track. I haven’t worked up to a run yet; it’s more like a slow trot.”
Trot or not, we're ecstatic that she was able to focus on the positive after her embarrassing fitness accident, instead of focusing on the negative.
Keep up the good work, gurl! We can't wait to see more pictures of the results!

Wait, Madge has cellulite!? Where???
The $75,000+ machine that's being put into her home uses acoustic wave therapy to rid the body of the cottage cheese appearance.
A spa owner in London who owns a machine explains:
"The force of the acoustic shockwaves shatter and destroy the cellulite-causing connective fibers. The waves break down the fibrous walls to release clogged fat, water and toxins. The process stimulates the nerves and increases blood flow to treated areas, which produces fresh, thicker bands of collagen, as well as stronger and smoother skin."
Suuuure it does.
However, the company that makes the machine says the ideal candidate is a woman who already has good muscle tone. That's a nice way of saying no fatties!
