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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

A totally galactic upgrade to your soldering gun. But there’s a somewhat sad tale behind it:
In 1983 (the year Return of the Jedi came out!) a 15-year-old Smith dropped and broke his dad’s soldering gun. To make amends, he took apart his prized Han Solo pistol and installed the soldering gun’s guts, even putting a lightbulb inside the blaster’s scope.
Genius. But hey, at least your blaster can live on through something actually useful. (TDW: Geek)
