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 dunno about you, but turning the clock forward for Daylight Savings Time fucked me up immensely (This is why there was no Nerdy Bits yesterday. Sorry). I want my hour back, you son of a bitch!
Björn Hurri used a series of illustrations to imagine Star Wars as a product of the 1870s instead of the 1970s. Here’s Yoda in a hookah bar on Dagoba. [Neatorama]
Clipping your nails to include bat ears, that’s being devoted to your fandom fashion. That, or you’re hoping to eff somebody with some serious scratches. Catwoman-style. [FashionablyGeek]
From Etsy seller greyskieseternal — creator of the clever “You Shall Not Pass” rubber stamp — comes a Pokémon stamp that offers students a little bit of positive reinforcement: “STUDENT used Study! … It’s super effective!” [buzzfeed]
Toby Turner takes the incredible Mass Effect 3 trailer and gives us literal lyrics in what is probably the best explanation of what’s happening the game, yet. [ToplessRobot]
Even in16-bit graphics sexual encounters end awkwardly and leave you feeling unsatisfied. Dammit, video games, why can’t you just perpetuate the lies of fictionalized sex scenes! [Dorkly]
The events of the trailer take place during the first war against the Covenant on Reach, as recounted by an aging UNSC veteran whose team was sent to retrieve the helmet of a fallen Spartan.
Not bad, considering this was made for $200. [geeky-gadgets]
Skeletor, master of insults. Watch this compilation of all of Skeletor’s greatest zingers. Is this guy touring? I don’t think Dane Cook is touring anymore, I’m sure that opened up some venues. [CollegeHumor]
This will probably be the greatest thing you see today. It’s a Delorean that can fly. Just like in the movie!! This RcC Delorean is a quadrotor which allows for flight and it was built by a Russian. Could this be the beginning of a new space race? Get crackin’ American nerds! [GAS]
