We say that a function h: R→ R is a "Hamel function" (h∈ HF) if h, considered as a subset of R2, is a Hamel basis for R2. We prove that every function from R into R "can be represented as a pointwise sum of two Hamel functions". The latter is equivalent to the statement: for all f1,f2∈ R R there is a g∈ R R such that g+f1,g+f2∈ HF. We show that this fails for infinitely many functions.
