Nerdy Bits: Get a Tentacle for Your Laptop, ‘Portal’ on a T1 Calculator, Dumb Ways to Die – In a Video Game, 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.
Above: Oh, what, no big deal, just Matt Smith and Neil Gaiman grabbing breakfast together before they go watch the Doctor Who Christmas special. [The Mary Sue]
Again, no big deal, it’s just Bane and his son dressed as Batman. Wonder if Tom Hardy was a little upset his son didn’t want to buy his costume? [Fashionably Geek]
Though I fear this dress would be the worst at covering Rogue’s power sucking skin, it sure is sexy. Made-to-order from 4D/Supatex rubber and will be based on your exact size. You can also customize it with your choice of colors and texture. Pick one up here. [Fashionably Geek]
Simon Petrikov or rather, the Ice King from Adventure Time is cosplayed here by kill3rtcell, and photographed by nahashon. Fantastic alternative to the blue moo moo, err, “wizard robes.” [Comics Alliance]
Taking tattoos to a whole new level is this Yoda who GLOWS UNDER A BLACKLIGHT. How crazy is this? Crazy awesome, I mean. It was inked by tattoo artist Kenneth Bryan of Intimate Body Art Studios. [Geekologie]
Why, oh why wasn’t this around when I was stuck in math class with no smart phone, no iPad, no DS or whatever other gadgets kids have. All I had was a T1 calculater, and I sure as hell couldn’t play Portal on it. Available to download. [Kotaku]
It’s Gandalf, on a unicycle, playing bagpipes. You’re welcomes. Though you should really be thanking The Unipiper. [The Mary Sue]
I’m a little surprised we hadn’t seen this video game parody of the song, “Dumb Ways to Die,” yet, but I’m glad it’s here. [Kotaku]
