The Glowing Spider-Worms of New Zealand
For over one hundred years, millions of tourists have flocked to the ancient limestone Waitomo Caves on New Zealand’s North Island, where a stunning species of fungus gnat called Arachnocampa luminosa live.
Unique to New Zealand and Australia, they are found in caves, grottoes, and other sheltered places. Arachnocampa means ‘spider-worm,’ as the gnat is known for the way their larvae hang strong vertical silk threads from their underground habitats. Since the larvae are luminescent, the thousands of tiny threads light up cave ceilings like a starry sky.
Did you know that this scene was entirely unscripted? Johnny Depp just kinda went with this and no one stopped him, so the reactions’ on the other actors’ faces are their actual reactions to Depp’s shenanigans.
makes the scene 100000 times better omfg

You will never do anything this cool.
Iron Man (2008) deleted scene: Tony and Yinsen snark-off.
I would happily have sacrificed all of the “lol shooting terrorists” action scenes just to have this in the movie. Why was this not in the movie. T_T
!! There was a Backgammon scene?!
Me and Wirrow play backgammon (or Tavli as it’s called in Greek) all the time. I usually lose. I lost today :(
