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.

The true evil that lies within video games is revealed. The Glitch! [Geeks Are Sexy]
In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Rap, watch the dwarves break it down about the time they had more money, bitches and mirth than they could handle. Pay attention at the 2:35 mark. [Dorkly]
Anyone want to spend their Christmas with a Dalek? To be honest, this video made it’s way online 2 years ago but I just found it today. It’s too good and odd not to share with the rest of you.
