Schweinshaxe is one of the greatest foods on earth. And seemingly impossible to find in the few German restaurants where I live. It's like M&M's but made of pork. Crunchy outer shell, sweet wonderful pork inside... I'm hungry now.

So many good ones everyone has mentioned already. Working in an engineering office, I find that any sci-fi quote has a fair chance of being recognized and well received.

Borders actually had a pretty cool computer based set up for a few years, before they closed up shop.

I wonder how this one would have flown once they fleshed out the design a little more. You can see the break lines on the head on view in the lower left corner of the sheet, so it was meant to be symmetric. It just doesn't make sense to show it all on a concept drawing.

I'm hoping for Twin Ion Engines as the propulsion for the next generation of fighters.
