Well, you could try nesting them and see what the compiler tells you!

Yes, but what's the point unless you are synchronizing different objects? Even so, it's risky, a deadlock waiting to happen.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction. - Ernst F. Schumacher

Yeah really quite funny. Like especially if Objecta synchronizes a recursive function.
Ha ha it will deadlock itself. I think. It would be even funnier if I didnt know what I was talking about
