Did she get it(2) and then lose it(2)? or did she never actually get it(2) in the first place?

It(1) = inanimate? Tangible? countable? H?
Same for It(2)?

Man, it's been ages since I've played at one of these...let's see if I remember how.

Did the relevant actions with It(1), It(2) and It(3) happen in a short time period - say a few minutes? A few hours? A few days?
Is this relevant?

Are any of the following relevant:
Her age?
Her Location?
Time period?
Her socioeconomic status?
Marital status?
Her profession?
The fact she is a she?

Anyone else important here besides her?

Man, it's been ages since I've played at one of these...let's see if I remember how. Welcome back, pretty lady

Did the relevant actions with It(1), It(2) and It(3) happen in a short time period - say a few minutes? Somewhere between here A few hours? and here A few days?
Is this relevant? only in that it may help you figure out what is going on

Are any of the following relevant:
Her age? not really, but adult if that helps
Her Location? yes
Time period? Current day..this year in fact
Her socioeconomic status? no
Marital status? no
Her profession? no
The fact she is a she? no

Anyone else important here besides her? Indirectly

ditto for the amount she didn't get of It(2)?

Was not getting It(2) inevitable? Could she have attained It(2)...
with more of It(1)?
if she had something else?
if she knew something?

My idea was something along the lines of water to operate a heath robinson type device, and it(2) is dropped just before She can catch it...

Or something along the lines of Fort Boyard.

Rephrasing here for a moment...

So she kept a liquid to gain something else, which she ended up losing anyway?

Is the nature of the liquid relevant?

Let me improve how I asked that...

Is what KIND of liquid it is relevant?
Is it important that it is a liquid (rather than a solid, plasma, etc.)?

Is it a liquid a sane person would drink?
Is it a chemical?
Is it the liquid form of an element?

If this is going to a dihydrogen monoxide place I will figure out how to kick you through the intarwebs :P

Is it a combination of two elements? Three?
Is it commonly consumed?

And, because anything can be described a combination of elements on a molecular level, would MOST people refer to it as "a combination of elements" rather than by another name?

Is it a combination of two elements? Three? closer to 7 to 10. The first seven are most common, and the remaining ones are highly variable. This is probably not the best path to what the liquid is
Is it commonly consumed? no

So...it can be consumed?
But it is not commonly consumed?
Is it harmful to the body if consumed?
Is it medical in nature?

Could it be purchased?
Purchased easily?

Is the container the liquid was in relevant?
Was it in a container?

Spinal fluid?
Some sort of glandular secretion (dear Lord, I am grasping at straws here)?

************* SPOILER **************

A preliminary autopsy states that a woman died of "water intoxication" following a water drinking contest for a Nintendo Wii. News10 in Sacramento reports Station 107.9 The End's "Hold your wee for a Wii" contest had contestants doing exactly what the title says. The winner was the person who didn't release their bladder the longest. According to the woman's co-worker, after the contest, "She said to one of our supervisors that she was on her way home and her head was hurting her real bad ... she was crying and that was the last that anyone had heard from her." The co-workers contacted the woman's mother later on to check up how she was doing and she discovered the body. No word yet on how much water the woman consumed.

Another senseless trajedy brought on by uneducated foolishness. As Vesica stated earler, this kind of thing is really stupid and I really hope the law comes down on them hard.

Thanks to all for the good work. Not bad for a first puzzle back. Now I need to step it up a bit, I expect.

I happen to live near Sacramento, so I imagine the story got quite a bit more coverage here than elsewhere. It was very sad.

Unfortunately, no charges have been pressed; the only action taken was the firing of several employees at the station.
