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.
PHOTOGRAPHY BITCHES

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

Don’t think of exercise as burning off food you’ve eaten or plan to eat.

It’s not, “I just burned 80 calories, now I can eat that yogurt tonight guilt-free.”

It’s, “I just burned 80 calories, now I’m going to eat that yogurt to give my body the energy it needs to continue burning fat and building muscle.”

Change your mindset.

Before morning workout
Eat within 30 minutes of waking up so you can jump-start your metabolism. Having some oatmeal, a banana, eggs are all great choice to start your day
Before afternoon workout
Your pre-workout snack should consist of foods that are easy to digest, low-fiber and low-fat within the hour. A banana, apple slices with peanut butter
After your workout
Eat within 30 mins - 1hours after your workout so your body doesn’t start burning muscle. The key factor is fuelling your body with protein. Handful of almonds or a protein shake, fruit smoothie with skim milk, cottage cheese with fruit, greek yogurt with fruit
