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.

Of course the comments and interactions came pouring in.

Of course, people noticed a few of the notable Marvel women were absent...

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.

The real world is a harsh place. We don't learn that soon enough. When we're younger we believe everything is possible and whatever it is that we want to do for a living is going to be a success. So we head off to school to procure that dream and in school we learn all we can and the dream grows bigger.

Then a little while after graduation, many people realize, the dream is a fantasy and the major they chose maybe more problematic than bountiful. Not many companies are looking for experts in socioeconomic post Russian literature. So maybe a few plans.

Redditor u/Mahimah wanted the post college peeps out there to share with us, tell us which degrees may not be the most fruitful in the world. They asked.... College grads who discovered too late that your major is useless in the real world, what do you do now?

Public marriage proposals are such emotional events, even passersby stop what they are doing to applaud the presumably happy couple.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.
