- 11-01-12Cool Stuff, Cosplay, Funny Videos Posted by Luke Gallagher

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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

ABOVE: The only 2013 calender you’ll need; featuring Battlestar Galactica alums Tricia Helfer and Katee Sackhoff. Yeah. It’s exactly as sexy as you are imagining. Imma keep the pervy comments to myself, though. The duo created this calendar for Acting Outlaws, their charity that raises funds for various causes. I can’t be dirty nerdy when charity is involved.   [NerdApproved]

Behold the Hog of Thunder! [9GAG]

There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, so when we needed them, they could play the orchestra battles we never could.  [GAS]

“Don’t make angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry” ~ The People’s Hulk [CBM]

Portal 2 companion cube ice tray. “We’ve both said a lot of things we’re going to regret. But I think we can put our differences behind us. For science. You monster.” [ThinkGeek]

The 10-foot flamethrowing Bumblee costume you never knew you wanted is for sale. [FashionablyGeek]

Ghostbuster backflips over cop and gets arrested. Because cops have nothing better to do than arrest people doing backflips… [Geekologie]

Darth Vader goes to Disneyland. Oi! The whole Disney buyout of Lucasfilm just seems so jarring when you see it like this. [Slashfilm]

“BadIdeaOnline” – took footage from Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead and Evil Dead II and re-edited the films to match the recently-released teaser trailer for the Evil Dead remake.  [ToplessRobot]

This shocking VHS footage was discovered inside the case of a clamshell copy of The Little Mermaid purchased from a Goodwill in Gary, Indiana. It seems to depict a person who may or may not be George Lucas traveling around the world and destroying as many VHS copies of the original Star Wars trilogy as he can. It is unlikely that this footage was ever meant to be seen by the public [ObviousWinner]

And now, T-Shirts You Gotta Buy…TODAY! (Before they’re gone.)

    Totally unrelated to this particular post, but to ALL Nerdybit Roundups…

    Can you fix your layout so that your Header (starts with “Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most….”) is at the TOP OF YOUR POSTS? Currently, you separate your first image and the caption that goes with it with your header. Why would you do that? How in the world does that make any sense? Not even the completely amateur editor of a Highschool newspaper would make that obvious mistake.

    Seriously.

      Sorry, we’re not changing it. All our articles lead off with a header image. This is typical of most professional blogs.

        It’s typical of professional blogs to have amateurish layout? I find that contrary.

        Your first image is separated from it’s caption by your standard preamble, which places the caption above your second image, which makes it seem that each image is titled with the caption from the previous image. No amount of justification will make that seem any less disjointed. It’s clearly a layout fail.
