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: Spot-on Rose Tyler and Donna Noble spotted at C2E2. Well, that’s a fan-fiction I never thought of before. I’ll be in my bunk. [FashionablyGeek]
This Periodic Table of Middle-Earth was made by the Lord of the Rings project and includes characters from the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. You know, because science isn’t nerdy enough as it is. [LOTRProject]
Finally, a Portal 2 turret statue that’s to scale. Only downer is it doesn’t talk or light up or nothing. [ThinkGeek]
Learn how to speak Klingon. In addition to using text and colorful pictures to teach useful phrases like “jlHmo’ jabwl’ ylHoHneSQo’!” (Please don’t kill the waiter on my account), the hardcover book also features audio that allows you to hear exactly how the phrases are supposed to sound. [GeekAlerts]
Japanese girl creates Triforce crest for family tombstone. Very touching and honorable, but it would have been even cooler of she added some Ocarina glyphs for Song of Storms or Song of Time. [Geekologie]
Star Trek figures get McFarlane-esque makeover. Cool, but did we really need a figure set featuring Khan and Kirk mid crip-walk? [SlashFilm]
I thought asking your fan questions it can only say “no” to was the funniest you can you can do with a fan. I was wrong. May I present Super Street Fighter Turbo edition desktop fan. [ObviousWinner]
Have you ever noticed how Commander Riker sits down? Oh, right in the childhood! *glass shatters* [ToplessRobot]
The trailer for Star Wars 7 as made by kids. It features tiny kids in Jedi robes, puppets, and a Sith. Could you have asked for anything more adorable? [NerdApproved]
