ParacendingScience brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
Tom had just jumped out of an aircraft at 5000 ft above hard ground when he looked up and saw a relatively large hole in his parachute. He did not use his reserve chute, no one else was around to help him, and yet he landed safely.
