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?
Luck 1 = luck 2?
Skill 1 = skill 2?

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.
