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

Above: When live gives you lemons, uh, make lemon grenade from Portal 2 with this DIY from Epbot. Note, lemon grenades sadly do not actually explode. Unless you make ’em that way. [The Mary Sue]


And if you’re in the crafting mood why not attempt to make an AT-ST from a popsicle stick. The tutorial is up on Instructables and I’m sure you’ll only get frustrated and glue your fingers together once, maybe twice. [Geeks Are Sexy]


Get ready to drool over this incredible looking Michonne statue releasing from McFarlane Toys on Feb. 11th. It’s 14 inches talls, has a limited run of only 1,500, and will cost ya $295. But look at her, she’s worth it. [The Mary Sue]


If that Pee-Wee Herman cycling suit really isn’t your style, how about Spider-Man? Or maybe TRON? [Fashionably Geek]


Just imagining GRRM describing a Super Bowl party menu is making me hungry! [Winter is Coming]


Speaking of Game of Thrones, these flasks – available in Stark, Lannister, Baratheon, and Targaryen –  are the finest flask a King could ask for. From Emporium of Fluff there’s also designs based on Star Wars, LOTR, and Doctor Who! [The Mary Sue]


God of War: Ascension releases March 12th and in preparation Sony has released this kick ass, live action trailer. Want a glimpse of how cool a God of War movie could be? He ya go. [Geek Tyrant]

Jonathan Keogh created this cool video featuring 50 of Quentin Tarantino’s greatest characters. It’s got everyone from The Bride to Bill. [Geek Tyrant]

Billy Eichner and Zachary Quinto take to the streets of New York to play “It’s Spock! Do You Care?” Sadly, many don’t. [Laughing Squid]
