Nerdy Bits: Did ‘Dexter’s Lab’ Inspire ‘Big Bang Theory’?, Buy Your Own Bat-Mansion, Dr. Zaius Performs as Mark Twain and MOAR!
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

I think we’ve all reacted a little irrationally from time to time, especially while playing any of the frustrating Zelda games. I can totally relate to Link, you’d think you get out such important information a little quicker dying dude, sheesh. [Dorkly]
