I can almost see the grizzled, veteran engineer sipping his coffee and turning to the rookie next to him (who is about to run,) to say "That's why we always clear the test cell before a run."

I can imagine it now...
"State Farm Insurance, may I help you?"
Uh, yeah, my car was just totalled.
"Sir, where did the accident occur? At what intersection?"
It happened at work. A jet engine being run in a test cell came off the stand, blew through a cinderblock wall, and hit my car parked on the other side. The thing hit my grill and hood, and has pretty much cut the car in half all the way to the trunk.

Can you imagine the mess it made of whatever was to the left, just off-camera?
I can just hear it now...
"Good Morning, State Farm Insurance, may I help you?"
Uh, yeah, my car just got totalled...
"Can you tell me the intersection where the accident occurred?
Well, uh no. I was parked next to the maintenance building, and a running jet engine blew through the wall from inside and hit the front of my car. It hit pretty much dead center, and plowed a hole all the way through the car and hit somebody else's car behind me...
"Sir, it's only 9:03 a.m.; isn't that a little too early to be drinking...?
