Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.

Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

 

Check out these exclusive Doctor Who t-shirts from Forbidden Planet. Talk about making cosplay easy! Currently only the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 10th Doctors available.

So you think you’re pretty clever proposing to your girl with a ring inside a video game box or some such nonsense. Yeah, well, Gary Hudston proposed using  custom made Portal levels. Now, you’re proposing with portals. (TDW: Geek)

 

I wonder where they’ll be honeymooning? Maybe this kid will let them rent out his Portal bedroom for a weekend. (TDW: Geek)

 

Or, maybe they could honeymoon at a real hobbit house! And you wouldn’t even have to travel all the way to New Zealand, this one’s in Montana. See, this here is a 100% American made hobbit house. (TDW: Geek)

 

Somehow, I don’t think thong underwear would be Imperial regulation, but how are we to know what they really wore under all that white armor. (Deviant Art)

As a regular bike commuter I cannot tell you how badly I want this R2-D2 helmet. Thankfully, there’s a link to a DIY. (TDW: Geek)

 

And, if you’re really in a DIY kind of mood, why not try to make your own grappling hook gun. (TDW: Geek)

 

There’s no substitute for a good fencing foil at your side, kid. (Fashionably Geek)

 

Geek Tyrant has a good list you should check out, 168 Geeky Media People You Should Follow on Twitter. I’m, sadly, not on the list but you can still give me a follow,@SarahThisIs, or better yet, follow @nerdbastards.

 

Thankfully, I’ve never had an argument escalate quite so much, but I understand the sentiment. The stuff I like is the best, and everyone should have seen it! (TDW)

 

Slacktory has a whole collection of famous movie quotes as they would have been uttered by a proper English man. Totally worth the look.
