Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Proof that exercise is terrible for you: The Post reports that a "very large" (their words, not ours) gym-goer was tossed across a Harlem gym yesterday by a rogue piece of equipment. "If you are on a machine, it's you versus the machine," explained a witness who clearly has seen The Terminator too many times. "She was, like, sling-shot from it." The best part of the article comes at the end, which consists of four paragraphs about a totally different obesity-related incident (as if to say "Elsewhere in fatty news...") You stay classy, New York Post. [NYP]
