There is no way that it could be bigger than the fuselage of a 737... Look at the picture! There is one man standing there. Raise him up a few feet for cargo area, and the floor of the cabin obviously, and you'll see that there is no way that you will be able to fit 6 seats and an aisle, AND overhead bins.... it might be close to the size, but I find it impossible.... anyone else share my opinion here?

I looked at the numbers awhile back...the GE-90-94B's diameter is 134 inches, and the GE-90-115B's diameter is 135 inches. 737-500's outer fuse diameter is 13 ft 2 in, or 158 inches. Data taken from the websites of GE and Boeing, respectively.
Still, it's one big mf'ing engine.
Edit: the 737's interior cabin diameter is 11 ft 7 in, or 139 inches, so that's closer (but still bigger) than the engine.

"Two and a Half Men" was filmed in front of a live ostrich.

Does this mean that a 777 can taxi past a 737 and have it's wing go over the body of the 737? That would be quite the site to see. So when they say look for FOD do they mean 737's for the 777 pilots? I have indeed been in a UA 777 engine and the damn thing is like a studio apartment.
