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: This Lady Deadpool is rockin’ a steampunk/Victorian inspired look so she can appear completely ingognito as cons. How’s it working? (Neatorama)
“The “regenerated” version (aka 2nd version) of the guiTARdis. Or the Patrick Troughton Doctor if you will.” This is awesome! When can we start seeing bands perform with guiTARDISes? Thanks for sharing Arthur Yet Lew.
Charting the life of a time traveler can’t be easy. Especially when he’s prone to jumping to and fro throughout our world’s timeline as well as his own. For example, the Doctor, the 900+, mad-cap, genius time traveler in a blue box from BBC’s Doctor Who. Revitalized for a whole new generation in 2005 the series has already racked up a mind-boggingly amount of adventures in time and space. How are we supposed to keep track?
Ta-da, the internet and it’s constant need to have things visually explained comes to the rescue! We’ve found an infographic which makes sense of the Doctor’s convulated (recent) history. This graphic details adventures with his companions from his 9th, 10th and 11th incartnations. Could you imagine trying to map out his timeline for his entire existance as we know it?!
In the meantime, while we wait for the ultimate infographic of the Doctor’s life , check out this fantastic timeline from Nathanthenerd. Please note the key on the left, this map would be jibberish without it.

I love the addition of River Song’s timeline, represented in the pink. It still hurts when I really try to wrap my mind around her and the Doctor’s relationship. Ow.
What if everything from movies and TV shows that were set in the past and/or future actually happened? What if they all occurred within the same universe and were displayed on a real-world timeline? Well, you are in luck!
The folks at blastr (a part of SyFy) have created a time-line showcasing 120 of the most memorable science fiction events from movies and TV shows in order. It covers everything from a long time ago in a galaxy far away in Star Wars, to Jean-Luc Picard’s birthday from Star Trek, and even the end of the universe from Doctor Who.
I can just imagine science fiction geeks all over the world drooling and waiting to print it out to put it over their walls.
How many have you seen?
