The reason why the room was pink was because on black and white film, hues of red become dark shades of black. Pink is the perfect balance to give it that dark creepy grey.
A related fun fact: while old black and white film was under-sensitive to reds, it was correspondingly over-sensitive to greens. Actors whose characters were meant to have unnaturally pale complexions - like Morticia Addams - would often take advantage of this by wearing makeup with a green base tint in order to make their faces “pop”. This is where the modern trope of cartoon vampires having green skin comes from.
These are some fun fucking facts
The tallest statue in the world, Ushiku Daibutsu.
this always gives me chills
This entire movie was an emotional roller coaster but this is the scene that absolutely shattered my heart.
If the first 10 minutes of UP dont do SOMETHING to you… you have no soul.
IT IS NOT EVEN OKAY TO TALK ABOUT THIS MOVIE YOU GUYS
LET’S MAKE A MOVIE THAT STARTS WITH A BELOVED WIFE DYING, THEY SAID. LET US BATHE IN THE TEARS OF CHILDREN, THEY SAID. ADULTS, TOO? EVEN BETTER.
THIS IS IMPORTANT, PLEASE DON’T FEED THESE TREATS TO YOUR DOGS
My mom bought these recently and they have made both of my dogs really sick. She later saw an article online about duck and sweet potato treats made in China(these fit the description) killing dogs and the FDA is doing nothing about it. Apparently over the last few years 600 young, healthy dogs have died after eating these treats and I don’t want anymore to suffer or be killed so please spread the word and don’t let your dogs have these!
This is VERY important! A lot of these animal treats made in China are killing dogs and cats. It’s not that the FDA isn’t doing anything about it, it’s simply that they don’t know why it’s happening.
They are conducting investigation after investigation, but the ingredients used in the food killing dogs (and 10 cats) is used in many different brands and companies that have been shipped, all from overseas. At this rate, a total recall and knowledge of where it’s coming from has proven very difficult. Just recalling one brand in particular will not solve the problem. Please conduct a thorough search about any brand of treats that have been made in China should you pick them up for your pet before you feed it to them. If all else fails, just buy local.
Please PLEASE be aware that this isn’t only happening to dogs, but some cat treats, too!
This may save lives!!

Beguinage of Bruges. Beguinages were lay communities founded by women for women beginning in the 13th century in the Low Countries, which allowed for independent living without the stricter lifestyle of nunneries. They funded themselves by handcrafts such as weaving and through inheritances. The decline of beguine communities during the Reformation is one example of how women lost status in early modern social shifts.

this makes me feel old.
Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry.
She registered for the race under the gender-neutral “K. V. Switzer. Race official Jock Semple attempted to physically remove her from the race, and according to Switzer said, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend Tom Miller, who was running with her, shoved Semple aside and sent him flying, and other runners provided a shield for her. The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.
Was just talking about this to my mother the other day…Katherine Switzer’s interview in The Makers is pretty awesome.
My least favorite thing is straight men who come into lush and act like it’s a direct attack on their manhood coming up to me like “I’m in here for my girlfriend” ok thanks for confirming your heterosexuality everyone who likes soap is usually gay

If I’m comfortable with you, I’ll:
- call you names
- tell you weird and personal details about myself
- say “I NEED TO PEE” instead of just brb
- type in caps a lot.
If i’m extra comfortable with you I’ll do all that and:
- talk casually about porn and really perverted thoughts
- share funny photos from my tumblr dash
- actually tell you when i’m upset
- try to make conversation with you
- just generally act really silly when I’m in a good mood
- tell you jokes even if they’re bad
I just wanted a refill on my Sprite.
That’s all I wanted.
and I would have done anything for it
