With the release of our 30th podcast episode and ending the nerd week comes our ever-popular question of the week! Question of the week is a question we ask you, our readers and listeners, and you answer it by either commenting to this post , or telling us your answer on facebook or twitter (@nerdbastards)! We choose the best answer on the Podcast and the winner will have their answer read aloud on the air, as well as the ability to shout-out or plug anything they want to. You will also see your answer written here on the weekly question post.

Last week’s question was: “What would be the Nerdiest Sex Scenario You Could Think of?” Our most frequent and most succesful commenter Mordrun has the winning answer. Mordrun said:

You meet a great nerdy girl who knows all the right stuff. She reads the same comics you read, she likes the same movies, she can hold her own when arguing the finer points of Han shooting first. She even loves Cosplay. Nothing could be going better when you discover she likes to mix her Cosplay with her amourous intentions.

Then the whole thing crashes down. She likes to Cosplay the female version of male characters. You think, Ok, I can handle that, who doesn’t like looking at sexy Han Solo or female stormtroopers with bare midriffs? Then it happens. She walks into your bedroom as a female Star Fleet captain. She likes to stay “in character” and insists you to call her Captain Picard as you hesitently touch that smooth, bald, head. (Wait, yes, the carpet matches the drapes, “shudder.”) “Make it so number one!” she bellows in a suprisingly accurate accent. Things get progressively worse as she creates costumes for you as well, Bearded Riker, Mirror Universe Spock to her Spock, Slave Princess Leia to her Jabba the Hutt, Yoshi to her Mario.

Lets congratulate Mordrun on submitting such a nerd bastard worthy answer. For this awesome submission Mordrun wins a prize from our partner SPLITREASON.COM. If you’re not familiar with SPLITREASON.COM they are an awesome (and I do mean awesome geek/nerd online apparel store. Tagged as ‘Gear for Geeks and Gamers’ their shirts are inspired from our most beloved video games, as well as commentary on nerd/geek culture. Mordrun, as our winner gets to go to SPLITREASON.COM and pick out 1 free t-shirt of his/her choosing, any style, any size. Awesome prize for an awesome nerd. Cheers to Mordrun!

This question is: If You Were Given a Million Dollars Under The Condition That It Be Spent For The Betterment of Nerds What Would You Spend It On?

We implore you to have a lot of fun with this and hope to see some funny and creative answers. Something like “I’d hire a ninja to kidnap the head of FOX television and drive bamboo shoots underneath their finger nails until he/she promises to bring ‘Firefly’ back on the air”

Please note that we DO NOT have a prize for this weeks nerd question. However, if your answer is really good, Luke (Our Senior Editor) might scrounge up something nice for ya. So what are you waiting for, ANSWER!

You will also see your answer written here on the weekly question post.

Last week’s question was: What Superpower Would You Like to Have and What is the Most Dastardly Thing You Would Do With It. The user who won answered here on the site with the username: lokeinlyesmith. lokein provided a hilarious, elaborate answer on how he would use mind control to rule the world and fix certain wrongs. Like force FOX to bring back ‘Firefly’ and turn the station into an all Joss Whedon Channel. As well as take any kids that are fans of Jar-Jar Binks to a rehab facility for electro-shock therapy.

Lets congratulate lokeinlyesmith on submitting such a nerd bastard worthy answer.

We implore you to have a lot of fun with this and hope to see some funny and creative answers. Don’t just say “Sex with Scarlett Johansson”. Be descriptive. What exactly would happen between you and Scarlett Johansson? How would it play out? Make it nerdy. Make it dirty.

We appreciate our readers, like a lot. We do what we do because of you.

No fans = No Nerdbastards.com.

There is no way to show just how much we appreciate you, but we got something today that’s very close to doing just that.

So, let me ask you. How do you feel about Playstation 3 and Starz original series  Spartacus: Blood and Sand? We certainly hope you got good feelings for them, because we are giving them away FOR FREE! Yes, that’s right, FREE!

“What’s up”, you say? See our friends from Starz want us to spread the word on their critically acclaimed series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. The First season  is on DVD/Blu-Ray right now and they/we want it on every nerds DVD shelf.

And, if I must say, why wouldn’t they? Spartacus: Blood and Sand is awesome. It’s about  a wronged tribal leader (Spartacus) that must fight for his freedom in the arenas of Rome. It’s filled with backstabbing, plotting, cliques, chicks, jocks, fighting, sex, sex and yea did I say sex (Naked Lucy Lawless!)? It’s a ramped up, blood spraying, full front guilty pleasure, but I digress. The show speaks for itself. To celebrate the boobs, blood, mayhem and chiseled dudes in loin clothes (hey it gives the ladies a reason to watch) Starz has partnered with Nerdbastards. Together we are thanking fans and bringing awareness to those among you that missed out on the show that makes ‘300’ look like a Disney film, by providing the ULTIMATE GIVEAWAY!

We are giving away 3 killer prizes to 3 random, but equally lucky fans that spread the Spartacus gospel on Facebook or Twitter.

“What exactly are the prizes”? “What exactly do I need to do to win”?

Great questions. Here’s the deal:

Contest: Write Nerdbastards Next Top 10 List

nerdcontest

Every week we give away cool little prizes or Shwag bags of goodies for our Nerd Question of the Week Contest (Done every Wednesday). Sadly, we will not be doing a question of the week this week. Before you come at us with torches and pitch forks (because we know how much you love NQTW) we are subbing it with something a little cooler. NQTW will return next week (July28th) but today we’re raising the bar. Setting a new standard. Kicking dirt in the face of all the other sites that just want your hits and don’t wana give back just for the fucken fun of it! So, after much debate and Xanax, we came up with an idea, totally Brill!

Briefly, I must prelude and say that every Thursday nerdbastards delivers a weekly Top 10 List. Whether it be “The Top 10 Badass Bitches of Scifi Cinema” or “The Top 10 Crap Comic-Book Character Costumes” we compile the best and sometimes worst of nerdy culture into funny lists (or at-least we think there funny). Well, we want you, our audience to write our next top 10 list. OK. I admit it. We’re being lazy and just passing off our work to you, but this will be fun. I swear. Did I mention there is a prize involved?
