Did you know that the official color of women is not even a real color? It’s true! According to this cute “One Minute Science” video, pink light does not exist in nature. (No, the Victoria’s Secret store does not count as nature.) What your eye actually sees as pink is a combination of red and blue light, or, to put it another way, the full light spectrum with the green light removed. “Minus green” isn’t as catchy a word as “pink,” but it’s a more accurate way to say it.

Another mind blowing bit of info is that the color pink is what our feeble brains substitute for all the un-seeable wavelengths on the color wheel between red and blue: radio waves, ultraviolet rays, X-rays, gamma rays, etc. So basically, pink is a substitute for something way more awesome. Sounds about right.
