Bagel plates <link> are like regular plates with a hole in
the middle, just like bagels. The general concept is that
since no bagel exists in the middle of a bagel, then why
bother not removing the small bit of plate that would be
As a thought experiment, I decided to reverse
the logic and
add extra plate to occupy the volume that the bagel
routinely neglects. The result was a plate with a circular-
section lump in the middle. More thinking led to the
realization that this would provide excellent stability by
physically interlocking with the bread product. The bagel
would be very difficult to remove from the plate,
particularly by side loading.
The product could be a boon to bagel consuming racing
drivers or centrifuge enthusiasts. Sadly the benefits of the
system are lost after one bite, and the plate is useless for
other bread. Downward acceleration is limited at 1 G.

||If you had two such plates, with a suitable attachment on the centre portion, they could be brought together to enclose the bagel in a sort of comestible Tokamak.

||Wouldnt this plate occupy all space not occupied
by said bagel, filling up all spacetime?
