Exercise Machine Almost Strangled Göring

In October of 1937, Hermann Göring, the drug addled slob who was head of the German Luftwaffe, played host at his large estate to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The Duke, formerly Edward VIII, had recently abdicated the throne of England and was quite taken with the Nazis. Göring showed the Duke and Duchess one of his many fat reducing machines.

Forgetting that he was in his military uniform instead of his workout suit, Göring mounted the machine, his clothes got tangled in its vibrating rollers, and he was almost strangled.

Too bad he wasn’t.
