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.

People Divulge The Scariest Thing That's Ever Happened To Them

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
