They should use manly diesel engines instead of those girlie hair blowers.

Those are high reving girlie engines operated by girlie girls.
A real man's engine maxes out at 125 rpm, a bit higher for generators.

I feel like we've seen this before, one entire stage of an engine getting up and going walkies. But i can't remember when or where.
This total fan blade and engine inlet disaster?
Yep, that's the one. Not much actual commonality I guess...

Actually no, maybe it's not. What I'm remembering is the broken-off turbine shaft, because it looks... odd.
