Familiarize yourself with this story. (The Navy pilot, not the dog walker.) Then, when you catch your opponents double-turning themselves, start your last rebuttal with it. Worth several extra speaker points, I predict.

The case that won NFA nationals this year was a giant double turn--the advantages literally turned each other.

No one noticed it until the finals, and even then it was the audience, not the neg that caught it. She won 3-2. So yeah, watch for it. You'd be surprised how common they are.

What do you mean by double-turning? Do you mean contradicting?

Double turning is link-turning AND impact turning. It looks like this.

1AC
Advantage 1: Less pollution
mpx: pollution is bad

1NC
Advantage 1. Two answers.
1. They actually pollute more!
2. Pollution is actually good, not bad.

2AC
They're right. Cool. Vote aff.

What was the case?

Something like:

Plan: Pressure China to revalue the yuan

Adv 1:
1. Manipulation will collapse the economy
2. Causes nuke war
3. Stop the collapse of the Chinese economy

Adv 2:
1. Manipulation allows the Chinese to modernize their military because their economy is artificially strong
2. Guarantees nuke war with the US
3. Forces them to stop modernization

So, if you solve for adv 1, you cause nuke war on adv 2.

People (myself included--I lost to it in quarters) didn't notice it because we all had deep files on currency manipulation, so nobody really looked at the case itself. And I reworded the tags to make it more obvious.
