conflictingheart:

the waitomo caves of new zealand’s northern island, formed two million years ago from the surrounding limestone bedrock, are home to an endemic species of bioluminescent fungus gnat (arachnocampa luminosa, or glow worm fly) who in their larval stage produce silk threads from which to hang and, using a blue light emitted from a modified excretory organ in their tails, lure in prey who then become ensnared in sticky droplets of mucus.

Anonymous asked: I think Rick's choice on having Nico be gay was stupid. It DIDN'T help his character development and DIDN'T explain why he was acting the way he was since the Titan's Curse. He's been acting the way he has been because his sister died and he felt betrayed by Percy, then since her death he has felt VERY alone, he has also been hanging out with dead people most of the time and has been hiding his knowledge of the two camps. Rick making him gay didn't help his character, he wanted to prove a point.

thesibyllinebooks:

Yes, he DID. he wanted to prove that BEING HOMOSEXUAL DOES NOT DEFINE A PERSON. Excuse me, I didn’t know there was a GAY reaction to your sister dying. What did you want him to do? Cry glitter and fly off to the Underworld on a fucking PINK unicorn? You have to be kidding me. I’m done.
