His lack of skill and bad luck made it plain to see that he was both skilled and lucky.

His lack of skill was made up for by being lucky?
His bad luck was made up for by being skilled?

Is the male version of the girl in Deadpool2 relevant?

So thanks to an event due to bad luck (gambling? He was randomly shot in a pub?...) he was able to demonstrate that he was lucky (in the sense that it could have gone worse?) and skilled?

Skill 1: literary, art, science, knowledge, dexterity, performance, a craft, an employment, a knack, a hobby, an innate/natural ability, a learned skill?
Same Q’s Skill 2:
Luck 1 and Luck 2: same fields as Skill or different?

No.
So thanks to an event due to bad luck (gambling? He was randomly shot in a pub?...) Yes, but none of the examples. he was able to demonstrate that he was lucky (in the sense that it could have gone worse?) and skilled? Yes to both. It could've gone worse.

Skill 1: literary, art, science, knowledge, dexterity, performance, a craft, an employment, a knack, a hobby, an innate/natural ability, a learned skill?
Same Q’s Skill 2:
Luck 1 and Luck 2: same fields as Skill or different?
Skill 1: science, hobby, learned.
Skill 2: knowledge, hobby, learned.
Luck 1: combination of the fields of skill 1 and 2
Luck 2: same field as skill 2

Science: chemistry? Medicine? Pharma? Geology? Math? Astronomy? Others?
Fire involved? Experiments? On the field experiments? In a lab? Broken bones? Sonething falling?

Kitchen involved? Water boiling? Cars? Technology? Pc? Tv? Phones? Other devices? Something burning? Failing in writing down a formula? In explaining something? Are puns relevant? Acting? Making laugh someone? Cooking?

Is it something like for bad luck and the lack of practice with skill1 something went wrong but he was able to solve the issue using skill2 and a little bit of luck? Are science and knowledge of skill1 and skill2 related?

Is this a pub quiz team or Mastermind thingy? Is this something that did, or could, happen in real life? Movie, book, FYI?

Science: chemistry? This, ultimately.Medicine? Pharma? Geology? Math? Astronomy? Others? Would be more well known as this.
Fire involved? No. Experiments? On the field experiments? In a way. Wouldn't necessarily call it an experiment. In a lab? Broken bones? Sonething falling? Yes.

Kitchen involved? Water boiling? Cars? Technology? This. Pc? Tv? Phones? Other devices? This. Something burning? Failing in writing down a formula? In explaining something? Are puns relevant? Acting? Making laugh someone? Cooking? No to the others.

Is it something like for bad luck and the lack of practice with skill1 something went wrong but he was able to solve the issue using skill2 and a little bit of luck? More like "the issue was of much smaller consequence because of skill and luck".Are science and knowledge of skill1 and skill2 related? No.

Is this a pub quiz team or Mastermind thingy? No. Is this something that did, or could, happen in real life? Yes, it did happen.Movie, book, FYI?

Chemistry... something like helium in balloons? Hot-air balloons relevant? Is the hobby a common one involving chemistry indirectly? Are some substances involved? E.g. venoms?
Is Coke involved?

Substances = common ones? Mostly Solid? Gas? Liquid? Can I invole the list of elements in the periodic system? Metal? Iron? Gold? Silver? Water? A dangerous element? Acid? Others?

Something falling = the substance falling?

Substances = common ones? Yes. Mostly Solid? This. Gas? Liquid? Can I invole the list of elements in the periodic system? That would not be very helpful. Metal? Iron? Gold? Silver? Normally no metals.Water? Could be. A dangerous element? Normally not. Acid? Don't know. No strong ones. Others? Yes.

Something falling = the substance falling? It fell too, but it was not the main thing.

Is a discovery relevant? Was it recognized that he was skilled and lucky formally? After years? After months? Immediately? Did he manage to solve/attenuate an unsolved issue? Did he risk to die? Are charges relevant? Is fire/heat relevant? Is cold and ice? Is internet relevant? Electronics and water? Was him in a dangerous situation? Mountains relevant?

Technology = iPad? Stereo? Household appliances? Something that can commonly be found in houses? Fluo lights? Headphones? Electronic fireplace? Airplanes?

Was he falling with the something that was falling? Was the something falling because thrown by someone? By him? Because something went wrong? Falling = falling from the sky? Falling in the sea? (E.g. he was captain of a ship which was sinking) was the something falling from an exceptional height? Was the something supposed to fall down? Is airbag system relevant? Parachute? War times relevant?

He did something, but not throw it.Because something went wrong? Yes. Falling = falling from the sky? Yes. Falling in the sea? No. (E.g. he was captain of a ship which was sinking) No. was the something falling from an exceptional height? DOYD. 1000-1500 meters I think. Was the something supposed to fall down? Yes, but... Is airbag system relevant? No. Parachute? Yes. War times relevant? No.

Does this happen in the 21st century? 20th? In the early days of the parachute? Was the something that fell attached to him? To the parachute? To cause the thing to fall, did he: kick it? Push it? Touch it at all?

Trying to figure out the noish to "risk to die". Did he die? although perhaps he thought what he was doing was not risky? Was he testing something? Did he risk injury?

So he intended to do skydiving right? If so is 1000-1500 meters the height ib which the problem occurs? I mean did he take up skydiving from a plane flying at an heigher distance and then a problem occurred at 1000-1500 meters? Does the problem involve nature? (A storm; wind; others?) Was the parachute open at 1000-1500 meters? If not did he manage to find a safe place to land in? Were there others relevantly skydiving with him? Communications with others relevant? Coordination? Is some show performed?

Wingsuit relevant? Walkie talkie? Is automatic opening of parachute relevant? Did he manage to open it manually? Was there an emergency parachute? Relevant? Was him unable to open the parachute for the presence of birds? Are helping signals relevant?

Is the jumper inexperienced? Are they abnormally high winds? Is the plane going faster than usual? Does the wind cause something to be blown off of him or out of his hands? Cause him to tumble? Does he hit something on the plane on the way out? Is temperature at all relevant? Does the problem affect his parachute? His clothing? Some other gear? His orientation? Are the effects of the problem immediately realized?

Does the skill/luck that he exhibits to alleviate the problem occur while in free fall? Once his parachute is opened? During landing? After? If he had not exhibited the skill, would it have affected him personally? Anyone else? Would he have been hurt? Would it have caused financial loss? Would he have landed far off target?

So he loses something off of his person upon jumping. Is that the lack of luck and skill?

Is the thing a camera? Another electronic device?

Does he retrieve the thing in midair? Does it fall all the way to the ground? Is his skill related to how well he protected the thing?

Is the thing a camera? Yes. Another electronic device?

Does he retrieve the thing in midair? No. Does it fall all the way to the ground? Yes. Is his skill related to how well he protected the thing? No.

Does he do something to the camera itself beforehand that helps him find it? Like cover it in bright tape? Or attach some kind of locator/transmitter to it?

Does his knowledge of math/trigonometry help him calculate the approximate landing spot?

Is the skill related to: electronics? Math? Science? Related to skydiving? Related to photography? Related specifically to locating things?

Is the skill related to: electronics? Math? Science? Related to skydiving? This. You may need to find it laterally. Related to photography? Related specifically to locating things?

Does he know the general area where it is likely to have landed? Because he is experienced with the flight pattern/timing of the jump? For some other reason?

His lack of skill in gluing the camera mount and bad luck in that it came loose just as he exited the airplane made it plain to see that he was both skilled in picking the absolutely perfect place to exit the plane and lucky in that the camera landed, undamaged, at the center of the designated parachute landing area, where it was found five minutes later.
If he had exited the plane four seconds too early, the camera would be in the forest. Four seconds late, and it would be on a huge field.
Well done, thanks for playing.
