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.

Pour me a hero tumbler set: $27.99

How can you ever be a proper host if you don’t have epic tumblers in which to serve drinks for your nerdtastic get togethers?  I think it’s pretty clear how having these will boost your nerd cred.

Death Star dress: $130 AUD


Swimsuits Assemble ! ! !

Summer’s here and it’s time to hit the beach, lake, water park, and the backyard or local pool, but you can’t make the scene without a proper swimsuit to show off your nerdy interests. So NerdBastards’s has scoured the Internet and found some of the geekiest, nerdiest, and wonderfully whimsical swimsuits available for your inspection.

Take a look at the gallery of swimsuit goodness and let everyone know which is your favorite, and which you’d wear to Joss Whedon’s beach party next week.

You didn’t get an invite?

Neither did we, but we’re gonna totally crash it.

What d’ya know? The whole “hey, let’s have the audience assume that Samus is a guy” thing came from a douchebag agent! To be fair, most agents are assfaces — this guy more than most because for some reason he’s only got one real eye. But, anyway, this guy’s entire plan was to get Samus in a string thong bikini and be a cocktease at the end of every game and thus confusing dudes and gals alike about their sexuality. Empowering females? Yeah, that’s just a lie to get you to the end (very much like cake).

This is how their first meeting would go:
