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 email@example.com

“The beer, an American pale ale, was made for a dystopian and post apocalyptic themed party.” Sadly, if you want your own bottle of Brow Sweat you’d have to brew your own. Or you can see what goods you could barter with homebrewer, Calum for a case. [ObviousWinner]
The Los Angeles Times put up a gallery of varied Dark Knight Rises toys including this Pop figure of Bane. I’d hug him if not for that goatsie facial apparatus.
Meet Mary Jose Cristerna, aka “The Vampire Woman,”. Where’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer when you need her. Hell, I’ll even settle for Eliza Douche canoe. This pile of mutilated flesh with fangs will haunt my dreams till next Tues. [BuzzFeed]
Cosplayers MeltingMirror and HexReedfly pulled off one of, if not the most, elaborate cosplays I’ve ever seen. They spent many hour making up this dual costume from Final Fantasy XIII‘s Ediolon Shiva Sisters, Styria and Nix. I’ve got the weirdest boner. [TDW]
Segway-like vehicle for the disabled. Yea sure, the disabled.
The Chariot is Exmovere’s vision for the future of the mobility scooter. Like a Segway PT, it’s guided by movements in the hips and lower torso to signal direction and speed. As a result, users have both hands available for other tasks. [DVICE]

I totally want Thor’s hammer, solely so I can run around in my underoos (and nothing else) whilst the Mighty Thor TV cartoon intro plays over my computer speakers. Verily.
OMG, check out this cute two-faced kitten.Naturally, he was named Harvey Dent, after the Batman villain known for his double features. The cat’s two heads function as a single unit. When one side “meows” the other opens its mouth, same with the feeding. Adorable. [GAS]
Bethesda is preparing to launch the Skyrim Creation Kit, which will allow players to create Skyrim mods using the same tools that helped Bethesda developers build the game, and they’ve released a preview video to show what the Kit can do.

Vocalizing maestro/Youtuber Nmckaig. does The Simpsons theme A Capella Style…by himself.
Luigi and Waluigi get acquainted over a meal and things get weeeiiirrrd. You’d think the two plumbing sidekicks would have a lot in common, but no, definitely not. [Dorkly]
