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.

Spartacus walks into Starbucks and does the whole “I am Spartacus” thing – a reenactment of the 1966 movie. Will the real Spartacus please stand up? [That’sNerdalicious]
Trailer for gritty Power Rangers web series EVIL REBUILT. POWER REBORN . At least they aren’t actually calling it “Power Rangers”, because that clearly isn’t what this is. Usually re-imaginings share some resemblance with the source material. I don’t see anything MMPR. [MMPRfanfilm]
