While the flux-capacitor hasn’t been perfected, and we can’t help you fix any past holiday humbuggery, maybe we can help you get this holiday season off to a good start.
For the next 12 days (Dec 1st-12th), the staff of Nerd Bastards will be listing a few of their favorite nerdy things. Gadgets, doohickeys, thingamabobs and more – all sorts of items that have been Nerd tested and Bastard approved. Basically, stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t have.
We hope you’ll find some unique and nerdtastic gifts among our selections, and that they make their way under your tree, Menorah or Kwanzaa bush.
Hit the jump for Chris’ list of Nerdful things. Check back tomorrow for Jeremy’s list. To see the archive of this feature, click HERE.
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: Completely impractical for fighting crime, but if you’re just wanting to look good and maybe catch the eye of your own Nightwing, this Batgirl latex ensemble should do the trick. [FashionablyGeek]
Because apparently devoting hours upon hours to World of Warcraft online isn’t enough, now spend hours playing some of the longest board games all steeped in Word of Warcraft-iness. [Geekologie]
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like ATAT on ATAT humping, Fisto from Masters of the universe actually fisting and other crazy shit like that. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm art lovin’.
Above: Fighting the Empire is tough. The rebels you need some sex appeal to reel in the new batch of heroes. With Princess Leia methods of persuasion, thes new recruits will always be filling the X-wings.
Be sure to check out the full gallery of Star Was propaganda art by Ant Lucia.

I love this! Click the picture for a full-sized version. Ever wondered what the top ‘net browsers, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari would look like as chicks in hawt dresses? Probably not. But here you have it, anyway! Credit goes to the very talented Moie “Eskimoie” Preisenberger.
You never really see much about the mechanics of pooping in space in the movies, it’s all scary space monsters, ray guns, and green belly dancing women. Just look at the picture above, that’s the most expensive toilet ever created. I think I’ve had nightmares about alien probings that involved a machine like that.
Here’s a couple of videos to enlighten, educate, and enhance your Space Pooping Awareness. So the next time your enjoying your favorite episode of Firefly or Star Trek, peek into the background, is there a space toilet behind that door over there?
For the funnier side 0f Space pooping check out this YouTube Video link.
Hot on the heels of Nathan Fillion’s “Swamp Ass” PSA comes Kaley Cuoco of Big Bang Theory fame with her Nerdgastic Break PSA – “Slave Leia.” I personally don’t think this is a real problem. As far as I, and many other panting, sweaty, semi-creepy convention and or party goers there can NEVER be enough Slave Leia’s. Please feel free to Google “Slave Leia Car Wash” for convincing evidence. I will heartily agree though, that variety is, much like the spice of Dune, a great way to crank up a party.
Tonight I’m frakking you. That’s my pick-up line. It never works. Of course, if I was Alessandra Torressani of Caprica and said that, there would be a lot of bent wookies, if you know what I mean.
OK kids, gonna keep this real short. Scifi Music Spoof Video. Torressani in Slave Leia Costume. Rapping from Big Bang Theory‘s Raj. More Nerd Pop Culture References and Cameos Than You Can Shake a Stick At. Or, as break.com likes to put it “A geek fantasy comes to life when one lucky nerd finds himself in Sci-fi’s hottest nightclub with every girl you’d ever want to frak.”
Ever wondered what Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde (is it sad that I remember their names) ever talked about when they were hanging out in the box while Pacman is out there eating his pellets. Well, the folks at College Humor released a video based on it and hey, the ghosts watches TV and talk about it like us nerds. Of course, not everyone watches all the popular show and that is the case with Clyde, in which I can relate to because of WWE’s programing… though I have no idea what the hell Private Practice is. Anyways, check out the vid and enjoy!
Battlestar Galactica, which failed to get a single Emmy nomination for dramatic series, earned the award for top program of the year at the Television Critics Association awards ceremony Saturday in Pasadena, Calif., Variety reported:
“It certainly feels appropriate that we received the acknowledgement from the people who were champions of this show from its outset,” Mark Stern, exec VP of original programming at Syfy, told Daily Variety. “Critics really adopted this show early on and, in a weird way, this feels like a conclusion to the process.”
Among other winners: HBO’s True Blood took home the award for new program of the year, and CBS’ The Big Bang Theory was voted as top comedy (that show’s Jim Parsons also won an award for portraying the geeky Sheldon).
