When it comes to making sure you stand out as an awesome coworker, one of the most honored, time-tested, fool-proof methods is to just bring food.

It works for offices, it works for retail jobs, and apparently it works for big budget Hollywood movie sets.

Robert Downey Jr. proved that one with a recent #TBT (Throwback Thursday) post on Instagram that has people kind of swooning.


RDJ "had the pleasure of hosting" a lunch on set for the women of the Marvel universe. He snapped and shared two images of the mini get-together.

If you're one of those people who likes to keep the fantasy pure and doesn't want to see the reality behind the magic, then maybe just skip looking at the pictures.

The group is sitting in a covered tent with a large air conditioning hose at the top and some plants to make it a bit of a more comfortable attractive space.

They're together at a long picnic table which is sitting on a patch of fake grass surrounded by a few bits of outdoor furniture. Essentially, it's a faux picnic!

The cast members are in various states of wardrobe and personal clothing mixed together. It's obvious the lunch was held in between scenes. Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Shuri (Letitia Wright) and Okoye (Danai Gurira) look like they could hit the set again with just a few touch ups.

For example, some of the body paint has rubbed off of Zoe Saldana's arms and the ladies of Black Panther are probably missing an accessory or two.

Mantis (Pom Klementieff) is just sitting around like an adorable bug in casual streetwear hanging out with Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow.) Evangeline Lilly (Wasp) could literally go for a walk and just look like some super cool person you'd like to meet.

And then there's Nebula (Karen Gillian).

If you're used to seeing her like this...

...then seeing her as pretty much just a head sitting on top of a normal body might freak you out a little bit.

Don't stress, though. We are 3,000% positive that neither Robert, nor any of the Marvel fans, could ever actually "forget" any of the powerful women who just weren't there that day.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
