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 email@example.com.
Yup, and we’re elusive, like unicorns. (TDW: Geek)
Wednesday is here and with the release of our 19th podcast episode comes the 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 is the biggest nerd fight you’ve ever had? The winner was Ekey and he won a free t-shirt from Bustedtees.com. Ekey, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the style of shirt you want and the size so we can set you up nice. Ekey’s answer was: Biggest nerd fight I was in involved a complete psychological and moral deconstruction of BatmanSuperman. My argument was that Batman was better since he was driven morally to be a vigilante for good by a broken system whereas Superman was merely a product of being an alien with superpowers. His argument was that Batman was only acting out his own self-preservation tendencies using an unlimited amount of money and technology that could have otherwise gone to school reconstruction or infrastructure to help clean up the city whereas Superman was poor and worked only as a lowly journalist and acted solely for the good of the people he saved. The argument got heated enough that the bartender gave my friend and me a pitcher for free and said we either needed to start drinking more or leave. vs.
Good job, Ekey!
This week’s question is: What is the nerdiest way to die? (Make sure you tell us what you’d like us to plug or who you’d like a shout-out to with your answer, so we can say it on the podcast if you win!)

Nerdbastards is lucky to have Bustedtees sponsoring us for the next few weeks, not just because they’re donating prizes for the winners of the ‘Nerd Question of the Week’ but also because they’re an amazingly kickass company!
First off, they are owned by the same company that brings you CollegeHumor from whom we post hilarious videos almost daily. Obviously they are awesome because they produce some of the most consistently hilarious shit found on the internet these days.
Second, the products they sell are stellar quality. This is a direct quote taken from their site:
All BustedTees t-shirts and hoodies are screen printed with plastisol ink and discharge printing, which gives the shirts a soft, worn in feel. Many of our competitors use print-on-demand to produce their shirts, which gives them lower production costs and gives you an inferior product that may fade or peel after washing.
I have several t-shirts right now that are fading and peeling and considering I paid my hard-earned money for them, I consider it a personal affront! I’m going to have to do the right thing and purchase future t-shirts from Bustedtees so I can wear them for a while.
