That's something a lot of people don't understand about cancer, is that it can last for YEARS. There are some forms that will carry a person off in a matter of months, but others that can be fought for years as Boseman had to. I've even heard of people battling with hemotological cancers for 15-20 years. And a person with these cancers has to go on with their life the whole time, raising children and earning a living, maybe even having the kind of success he did, while dealing with cancer the whole time. We just never know what other people are going through.

It’s no surprise that there are so many cinema lovers who appreciate movies by watching them over and over again. Films have the magical power of pressing pause on our everyday problems and carrying us into distant worlds, full of the most interesting characters and fantastic scenarios. 

If you also consider yourself to be a true movie expert, you should definitely take a look at the Film Facts Twitter account. They take some of the best never-before-heard details about cinema and share them online with more than 251.6K of their followers. 

These tidbits of information are not only cool to know for your weekly trivia nights or for impressing your friends and family members. When you’re presented with a quick question, you need to be able to pull that information from your memory or try to connect the dots and think of a possible answer. Learning new things and being able to put them into context helps to keep your mind sharp and healthy.

You forgot to mention she is a professional video editor, which makes a huge difference as a lot of experience and software knowledge is required for this job. From text it sounds like she never edited any film before

Understandably uncomfortable, but historically accurate.

Some people tend to dismiss learning new and interesting facts as a waste of time because today you can find any information you need with just a few Google searches. However, when a person is asked a trivia question that they know the answer to, they suddenly perk up and feel engaged. 

One of the reasons behind this is simply that answering a trivia question provides us with a thrill. “You get a rush or a neuroreward signal or a dopamine burst from winning,” John Kounios, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Drexel University in Pennsylvania, told Healthline

“I think whenever you’re challenged with a trivia question and you happen to know it, you get a rush. It’s sort of like gambling.”

For anyone who’s wondering if you have to be smart on many different levels to be good at answering quiz questions, Kounios said that people aren’t necessarily better at trivia games just because they’re more educated. “Some people soak up facts,” he continued. “Plenty of people with a lot more education may not remember what they had for breakfast yesterday morning.”

“In typical people, my observation, not backed up by any research, is that their interest in trivia is confined to topics that they are generally interested in,” the professor added. “So if a person is very interested in history, then they may either seek out history trivia, or they might just naturally pick it up in the course of learning about nontrivial aspects of history.”

That was definitely a gamble. It was very possible that she would have felt even more attached to him after that encounter.

That's the weird thing about Hollywood. Sometimes the payday for doing great work comes with your next job, not the one where you really excel.

That probably helped her performance. Maybe she even avoided talking to him, because she wanted to hold onto the fear, and not realize he was just another guy!
