    Teddy Roosevelt's Exceptional Abilities

    15. That bear never stood a chance:

    16. He got away with discharging firearms in the house, just to amuse his kids:

    17. He relished exploring countries that had never been explored*:

    *by white men

    18. And he brought that adventurous spirit wherever he went:

    19. He was greeted by crowds everywhere:

    20. And it never went to his head:
