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 nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

Because the internet isn’t finished with Skyrim (the smash video game hit from Bethesda), Oddeh on Deviantart has made a complete Skyrimthemed Monopoly board! Custom currency and cards were also created. My favorite card? “You take an arrow in the knee, go back three spaces” lol.

Head on over to oddeh and tommyfilth’s respective DeviantArt pages to download hi-res images to print out and slap over your existing Monopoly board. [Geekologie]

To promote their upcoming game Firefall Red 5 Studios hired ex-American Gladiator ‘Hawk’ to play the part of one of the characters for press events and shows. Is it still Cosplay if you’re being outfitted by a video game developer for marketing purposes? I dunno, but I wouldn’t dare ask that to a ex-American Gladiator wearing an exo-suit.  [kotaku]

Maggie at Mad Art Lab created these 3D TARDIS cookie cutters, which were used to create these these timey-whimey tasty treats. [Boing Boing]

A majestically marvelous orchestrated rendition of the Portal Still Alive end credits song (originally by Jonathon Coulton and Ellen McLain) by Youtube user dummeh.  This is totally going to be my new ringtone! You can download the song at SoundCloud.

Yay, more Skyrim shenanigans.  This time YoTube user fncypntz  made  “Macho Dragons” mod for Skyrim, which replaces a dull, normal dragon with an enormous pink cowboy hat made famous by legendary late wrestler Macho Man Randy Savage.  [ObviousWinner]

A flash mob of Mortal Kombat characters took to the streets of New York City to test their dancing might. Everyone achieved a flawless victory except for Melina, poor girl fell off a moving truck bed (2:18).   [Dorkly]

What would happen if you crossed Contra with Paperboy? Pure mayhem. [BuzzFeed]
