We would like to think that, as adults, school taught us basic facts that could save us from potentially embarrassing situations in which we reveal how naïve we are about things.

There’s really no way to argue against the fact that actors are paid insane amounts of money — more money than 99.9 percent of us will ever see in our lives or those of generations that come after us.
