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

Because you’re not nearly well-versed enough in the reign of Kim Jong Un, Moneyhorse Games has gone ahead and summed it all up in this short, 8-bit animation. [Geeks Are Sexy]

A giant, green lizard trampling through your town is a really bummer. Have you ever experienced any of these problems during your own hometown kaiju attack? Yeah, #GodzillaProblems, man.

With X-Men: Days of Future Past dropping this week, there’ still time for some speculation about what’ll really happen. I’m all for this wild idea where the X-Men travel back to 1960s New York to stop the mad man, Don Draper!
