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: It was very difficult to choose just one Joffrey Bieber image to share with you all today. So, if you haven’t already, scoot your nerdy butts over to the Joffrey Bieber Tumblr to see two whiny teenage brats mashed into one.
If you, or someone you know, has boobs awesome enough to require their own galaxy, you need this corset from Etsy seller Fash N’ Fuel.
This steampunk AT-AT was all over the internet yesterday. We first saw it via ThinkGeek’s Twitter, but the gals at the Mary Sue have more images of it. By the way, it was made by Broken Journalist as an engagement gift to his finance. This is what you all must live up to, gentlemen!
Nerdify your keyboard with these superhero (and villain!) decals from Killer Duck Decals. They make a lot of other geeky decals, but the ones for the keyboard are my favorite.
OMGOMGOMGOMG!!!! Funko now makes a little Alien Pop! and there’s also a little Predator Pop! and a little She-Ra Pop! to shut that shit down if the intergalactic warfare between those two gets to be too much. Can you tell I’m slightly excited by Funko’s new 80s inspired Pop! figures? You should be too. [the Mary Sue]
Fashionably Geek describes this as the nerdiest tattoo you will see all day. I think it’s the nerdiest tattoo you will see EVER. It’s a combo of HitchHicker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Doctor Who and Lord of the Rings. Can’t get much nerdier, can you?
I’m not sure it’s possible for me to get through a Nerdy Bits column without posting some TARDIS cosplay. But this lovely steampunk TARDIS is from Mental Floss’ collection of 10 TARDIS dresses for fancy occasions. The article has some incarnations of the Doctor’s Wife we’ve seen before and some that we haven’t, including a dress that would perfect for prom.
Okay, so the commercial for these QR code interactive bedtime story PJs is pretty lame, but the concept is cool. It might be the only time anyone will ever use a QR code. [Bit Rebels]
To kick off Philly Tech Week, Dr. Frank Lee, from Drexel University, created a gigantic game of Pong on the side of a building. The three-story paddles were controlled via laptop. [the Verge]
