17. If you're cute enough, bubbles will spontaneously erupt behind you at random moments.

18. If it's undeniably impossible in real life, don't worry, you can totally pull it off.

22. Travel of any form will either take 3 seconds, or 30 episodes.

41. Nobody has body hair unless it's there for a joke.
