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
Just because the dead walk the earth and hunger for the flesh of the living is no reason to not be cheerful. Combine rainbows and unicorns with 5.56mm of hot lead and a chainsaw and you get the OMG AR-15 zombie killing rainbow assault rifle. Don’t act like you are not impressed. [ObviousWinner]
While losing long tracks of time living out the dream of being a Jedi (or a Sith, we don’t judge) on BioWares Star Wars: The Old Republic keep you eyes pealed for some of the insanely awesome lightsabers. I find the lack of rainbows and unicorns disturbing. [nerdapproved via swtor]
The video game entertainment curve is a harsh mistress and this infographic is far to true. The only thing left out was Strategy games, granted those things are just a wonderful time black hole, I still have a CIV4 game going somewhere. [Loldwell]
If you’ve ever wanted Westley and Inigo Montoya eternally locked in a sword fight on your shelf (who doesn’t) you now can! This Princess Bride statue is available here and here will nicely compliment any room or cliff of insanity. [GAS]
Well, at least now we know why it would never work as a FPS. 25 years of Street Fighter in hilarious first person view. [YouBentMyWookie]
Guys, when you finally decide to settle down with the lovely nerdette in your life into blissful wedlock, do not take the proposal lightly, you must sweep her off her feet. If you do it in binary while wearing a Bender mask and she says yes, you know she’s a keeper.[TDW]
After you have proposed, remember there is still the whole getting married thing too. A brides first dance with her new husband is something she has been dreaming about since she was a little girl, make it special with Malukah‘s cover of “The Dragonborn Comes,” one of the main themes from Skyrim. Am I the only one that was expecting the dance to glitch out halfway through? Damn you Skyrim. [TDW]
