Oh what the hell, why not? Everybody gets two more noms and two more seconds.

And why not, I'm expanding the tourney to 64.

Everything noted. I'll have the thing updated by tonight. And if things run short, I'll hand out more noms and seconds as we go.

How about Zorg's ZF1 Assault Weapon from "The Fifth Element"?

EDIT: I guess make that my "automatic" - I don't normally do these tournaments, but The ZF1 can't be overlooked!
You brought two too many.
