Don't get on this plane

Quick, what's the whole point of an airplane?

Stay in the air? Sure.

Try not to break apart? Absolutely.

Go really fast? Probably.

Back up a little. What's the actual point?

How about carrying stuff? People, cargo, you know, ... stuff.

With that in mind, what about this thing?

That... is a flying wood chipper. It carries no cargo. It exists only to carry itself. Attempting to store something in it will result in immediate consumption and destruction.

Gee, it's almost Freudian.
