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.

Valve’s Portal 2 level creator DLC, Perpetual Testing Initiative, is out today, along with an important memo from Aperture Science head honcho Cave Johnson.

So to put your minds at ease, let me clarify: You are not mentally ill and you did read the memo just fine. It was real. You should be designing test chambers, right now and at all times, or by God I will fire you.
Avengers Assemble! One Direction parody of ‘What Makes You’. Huh? These guys might have a superhero’s physique, but they’ve sure got some super dance moves. [ScreenTeamShow]
