"Don't shoot my face!"
Ever played an point-and-click adventure game and thought, "You know what would be really cool?

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek appeared on The Nerdist Podcast recently. It's a really interesting interview, and if you have an hour and a half to kill, it's a great way to do that. At one point host Chris Hardwick wondered what the theoretical maximum a player could win in one episode was, so we did the math.Read More

It's probably harder to find a not-insane Craigslist ad.
Last night, Karen Gillan stopped by @Midnight to read a truly bananas Craigslist ad for a "Haunted Engagement Ring." She was also there to promote her new movie, Oculus, but let's focus on the silly Craigslist ad that's trying to sell a ring "worn by Satan herself."Read More

This Exists... Because of A Lady
Danica McKellar’s New Nerdist Channel Show, “Math Bites,” Is Kind of Adorable (Though It Needs A Better Name)
Well, now we just want pie.

This first episode is all about Pi and features a cover of the first hundred or so digits set to "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies." That's all you can ask for, really.Read More

All Star Celebrity Bowling is a great web series, but doesn't it ever feel like Chris Hardwick's needs to be taken down a peg?

Edgar Wright, Nick Frost, and Simon Pegg (along with Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols) certainly won't stand for that.Read More
