Yet scientists this have announced that the colour pink does not actually exist.

Well it does, but only in our minds.

The trouble lies in the fact pink is a combination of red and violet, two colours, which - if you look at a rainbow - are on the opposite sides of the spectrum.

Everything we see is in our minds, not only non-pure colors. So pink is as real as red or blue are concerning our brains.

Considering there are only 6 pure spectral colors (7 if you add indigo as Newton did) and that they can be combined to make about 10 million colors that our eye can perceive, I don't see what's so special about pink. Simply because it's make up of red and violet which are thw two "antipodes" of the spectrum?

So you have these two faster-than-light neutrinos walking into a bar...

Pink the color (or colour) does (kind of in the way that the title is made for a combination of light) exist, pink the light does not. Pink the artist does, and scares the ever loving guano out of me. Pink the song by Aerosmith does exist, but the video also disturbs me.
I almost posted the 'minute physics' video, but it's in the original link at the bottom.

And engineers have stated before that bumble bee's can not fly...

And yet they do...


I suppose this means that the town of Pink, Oklahoma will have to change it's name... that will upset the 15 (or so) people that actually live there...

So, no one "proved" that a bumblebee can't fly. What was shown was that a certain simple mathematical model wasn't adequate or appropriate for describing the flight of a bumblebee.

In the spirit of Moose-hood, I give you full reign over being picky. I apologize, I'm a bug guy. "Where is your pink now?". Honestly, this is nothing new though, just in the news because some people who don't understand how it works got upset... just my opinion though, so take  with a mountain of salt.


EDIT: Also, us Squirrels have a long history of liking Moose-kind.

if i see it existing in nature it's real enough for me.
there are several instances where i've been hiking in the late afternoon and as the sun was getting lower the air had a pink quality to it. i don't know if anyone else has experienced this but it's very cool!

Posted 10 March 2012 - 08:39 PM

What will Hollywood stylists do without pink !?!?
And do the flamingos know ?!


Actually ,the flamingo gets its coloring from something called astaxanthin.
Flamingos are born white.Something they eat contains astaxanthin,which is dark red,and it stains their feathers as they grow,from the inside out.

I say pink exists ! and damn the scientists.
Next they will say chartreuse doesn't exist,and i will just die of chagrin !

Miss me?

Hmm, I think this might be true.
You can't exactly say if it is true or not really...
