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. Every Wednesday and Saturday (mid week/end of week) 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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com

You could say superpowers don’t really exists, but then you’ve never unleashed the wrath of a women scorned. I once made the mistake of calling my wife overweight (I am not a smart man) and suddenly she had the strength of the Thing and The Hulk combined, as well as the ability of throwing any object with the accuracy of a Tomahawk missile.

But, yeah, for the mos part super powers are figments of imagination brought to life in the pages of comics and super hero movies. There is, though, a science to it all. People much smarter than me can explain the physics and mechanics behind the abilities of our favorite heroes, as well as how science may one day be able to make such feats of fantasy possible.

In the latest Nerdist Because Science video,  host Kyle Hill focuses on the super-soldier serum that was used to turn scrawny Steve Rogers into the superhero Captain America.  (more…)

Ducks 2

If you are old enough to remember the Mighty Ducks movies or have parents cool enough to have shared them with you, you remember just how wonderful the first two movies of the franchise really were.  The morals of acceptance and perseverance in the face of adversity that ran throughout the series are timeless lessons that still have a positive influence on many fans of the films. Every few years, talk of a new entry in the franchise start-up and earlier this year, there was some chatter that the Ducks could indeed be making their way back to the big screen.  One of the questions that many fans always have is “How much of the original cast would return?”  Well, we had a chance to ask one of everyone’s favorite Ducks, Elden Henson, and it turns out, if the Flying V ever shines again, he is on board.
