This Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Sushi Set from thinkgeek is pretty awesome! You set the food down on the wooden plate, and use the ship’s warp trail as chopsticks. The top of the saucer section comes off to reveal a sauce dish, and you can rotate the ship so that it doesn’t get in the way of your grub.

2015 Submarine Cable Map created by  TeleGeography.
"This year’s map pays tribute to the pioneering mapmakers of the Age of Discovery, incorporating elements of medieval and renaissance cartography. In addition to serving as navigational aids, maps from this era were highly sought-after works of art, often adorned with fanciful illustrations of real and imagined dangers at sea. Such embellishments largely disappeared in the early 1600s, pushing modern map design into a purely functional direction.
To bring back the lost aesthetic that vanished along with these whimsical details, TeleGeography referenced a variety of resources in the design process. One of the most invaluable was Chet Van Duzer’s Sea Monsters in Medieval and Renaissance Maps book, which provides arguably the most complete history of the evolution of sea monsters and map design from this period. Our final product is a view of the global submarine cable network seen through the lens of a bygone era
