All you little girls and WASP-y prepsters pining for the peaceful Nantucket summer take notice: Pink doesn’t actually exist.

GASP!

Scientifically speaking, pink doesn’t technically exist.

Informative and punchy video maker MinutePhysics is back with their latest video explaining why pink doesn’t exist and how our brains make up the color that should go in pink’s place on the color spectrum.

The long and short of it is, the brain commits a bit of neural trickery by stripping the green out of the color spectrum to create pink!

This is still a difficult concept to wrap the noggin around.
