Here's a wild fact that might blow your mind: being a superhero isn't quite as glamorous behind the scenes as it is on camera.

For some Avengers, like Tom Holland, even taking a quick swig of water can be an awkward ordeal.


Fans always take a special interest in the behind-the-scenes lives of the Marvel heroes.


But it's not all fun brunches and hang-time!

During a press interview with the stars of the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home, Tom Holland (Spidey himself!) revealed the web-slinger's true nemesis: hydration.

With his costume obviously blocking his mouth during filming, it turns out that Holland has to get water by removing one of his eye-pieces and sipping through a tube that runs through his mask.

There's always a trade-off when you get superpowers...


Naturally, Holland's revelation made front page news worldwide.

The fact that Holland has to get his water through an elaborate apparatus gave everyone who saw it a case of the giggles.



Perhaps Spider-Man will wrestle with his ability to drink in his movie.

If only Spider-Man's drinking method was the only eye-related headline inspired by the press for Far From Home!

It seems one of the designers for the movie's posters couldn't be bothered to remember which eye Nick Fury's patch is on.

Check out Spider-Man: Far From Home when it hits theaters on July 2!

Hopefully, Tom Holland is looking as quenched as ever thanks to the behind-the-scenes efforts of the entire Marvel team.

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
