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
ABOVE: This beautiful Chi cosplay, based on an artbook design, comes from Ani-Mia. You can check more pics of this and more costumes on her Facebook page. You’re familiar with Chobits, right? The manga and anime about guy who falls in love with his cute, humanoid personal computer, Chi. Yup, a true nerd fantasy. (Fashionably Geek)
Some people fear the new line of “girl-friendly” LEGO bricks won’t offer the same creative freedom for kids as other sets. But I don’t believe that’s the case.

He also updated LEGO Friend Stephanie, giving her a custom painted flight suit and boots. Check out more photos at TDW: Geek.

Often what makes a tattoo really standout is its placement, and I can think of no better place to get some sweet lightsabers than on your forearms. This man will be duel-wielding for the rest of his life and I think we’re all just a little bit jealous. (Obvious Winner)
It’s completely possible to traverse through Skryim never killing anything. It may not sound nearly as fun as laying waste to whatever’s in your path, but if you’re committed to a pacifist lifestyle it can be done. Watch the video above of Felix the Peaceful Monk not killing a soul. (Laughing Squid)
On the other hand, you could attempt to mod Skyrim to allow you to experience the biggest and bloodiest battle imaginable. This video features, “500 Draugr, 200 skeletons, 500 Dwarven Warriors and a dragon” in what could be Skyrim’s greatest battle. (Nerd Approved)
