They are both made out of aluminum cylinders: Boeing says it will give its workhorse 737 a new more-efficient engine to better compete with Airbus' A320neo, which also has a new engine. The latest version of the Boeing plane has been dubbed the 737 MAX.

Considering that loggers routinely work with chain saws, axes, steel cables and huge tractors, we think they showed amazing restraint.
