However, a quick re-scan shows that one of the Alex questions was a bonus part, so I already have no beef. Again, I was just curious that it appeared that many knowledgeable folks were asserting, I thought, that two TUs on the same answer line were fine as long as no clues were repeated, even if they were both of the same category (as in Mike's "Probably Unacceptable" section above).

Also going here is "Toss-Ups on the Same Answer in Different Categories in the Same Packet." cf. HSNCT 2009 and "Ethiopia."Cheynem wrote:PROBABLY UNACCEPTABLE
Toss-Ups on the Same Answer in the Same Category: You could do fine tossups on George Washington's military career and his presidency, I guess, and they wouldn't overlap, but two history tossups on George Washington in the same tournament is probably pushing it. Tossups on countries is a little different, I suppose, but even still, I think it's a little bad form to have two history tossups on like France, even if they are from completely different time periods.
