15. That talking softly and slowly often gets your point across better than angry yelling ever will

16. Go Pittsburgh!

17. Mr. Rogers was a teacher, a minister and a puppeteer before he got his own show. He was 40 when he began filming Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, so if it took Mr. Rogers that freakin' long to figure things out, you're going to be just fine.
