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: Chocolate sculpture inspired by Daleks. It will exterminate… your diet (I’m here all week folks) [GeeksAreSexy]

X-Wing made out of left over beet cans. Well, that’s one way to recycle empty beer cans. If it were me, I’d take to the recycle center and claim my nickles.  [ObviousWinner]

Pacman Lamps. Each lamp includes a wireless remote control, which lets you set your ghost to one of sixteen colors. So, you get all the classic ghosts ((Blinky, Inky, Pinky, Clyde) and then some. I’d choose my own color and name the new ghost Susan. I ask you to respect my life my choices.  [Technabob]

To say George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones series is expansive, would be an understatement. It’s hard as hell to keep track of who’s who, what happened when, and where. Well, now there’s an app for that. This GoT guide helps you sort through over 450 characters and 380 locations complete with interactive maps.  It’s available for the whole series or individually for each book, and even includes an anti-spoiler feature so you won’t get information you shouldn’t have yet. [NerdApproved]

ThinkGeek’s Dragonscale Bag of Holder. Now you can cram all of your books, pens, and tablets, laptop, not to mention your scrolls, wands, and potions into a single messenger bag that just got a +5 to Charisma! [ThinkGeek]

Homemade TARDIS control room. Pfft. An imaginarium would have been much cheaper. Also, are those pie pans on the wall? Crap, now I want pie. [DailyUnique]

TV character’ business cards imagined. Completely accurate to their respective persons, and thus very funny. Imma steel the Barney Stinson one. [Imgur]

Don Cheadle reprises his role as the deranged Captain Planet. Best part is when he and Ma-Ti have a heart to heart. [FunnyorDie]

“Ganon can eat my Deku nuts!” Why being a henchman in Zelda universe would suck. [Cracked]

Cool things the Mars Curiosity rover could find (parody of “dumb ways to die”. Prolly the cutest video you’ll watch all day.  [TheMarySue]
