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: A tank with a giant Darth Vader head is totally rad on its own, but it gets even cooler when you look closely and realize it’s made from all different kinds of materials.

If Bilbo Baggins was a girl, she would probably look something like this! Cosplayer Aishafee created this lady Bilbo after about 3 months of work. Adorable.

I love nerdy cakes. They’re one of my favorite things to post about…. but this one…. it’s amazing, don’t get me wrong, but how on earth do you cut into it? Do you lay it down first? Do you take off the fondant cape first? Do you just rip off one of the arms and start noshing? [Home Geekonomics]
I thought seeing Hank and Marie watch Walter’s “confession” from this week’s Breaking Bad was the best thing I’d see all week, but nope, watching them watch Miley’s VMA performance is the best thing I’ll see all week. [Obvious Winner]
Dude, the people of Japan are serious about their pranks! This poor guy believed he was being chased by a dinosaur. [i09 – who, btw, erroneously called this a velociraptor.)
