Well it's semantically incorrect to say there is no pink light. It's just not monochromatic (single-wavelength). Actually, almost no light except for lasers (or LED if you are not very exact about your definition) is monochromatic, all light you know as light is broad spectrum (it doesn't mean it doesn't exist). Take for instance your LCD monitor - filtered white light by three different color pixels. No problem. Sloppy expressions can mislead people. And while we are at it, none of unsaturated (grayish) colors are spectral colors.

Pink always looked to me like a lighter version of red and sometimes with a little of yellow mixed in it. But red and blue, i would really never guessed it. :S

#2 That's because we're talking about the additive color system where red and green also produce yellow and not one mixed with the other.

In the subtractive (paint) system, you get pink by mixing red with a little bit of blue. Too much and you end up with violet. I guess you can compensate for that with a little yellow to brighten the final color.

In the additive (light) system, you can mix them equally and get a perfect pink.

There's no such bloody colour as PINK...its Magenta! ( minus green) Try printing some colour films and see what happens when you take out green, but hey...what do I know...I've only been in photography for 50 years.

#10 reflected light is still light. You can't even tell them apart. Indoors during the day, everything is lighted by reflected and scattered light (it's mostly your white walls that are lighting your book).

I have always knew magenta was blue and red after trying so much in getting my monitor calibrated cuz i hate green hues in the faces and some shadows looked green no greyish so when i tried to remove the green from the faces too much i could see a pink / magenta color in the faces getting more pronuanced cuz the red and blue were replacing the green. Also magenta , cyan and yellow are the next subpixeles we have to be using by know besides the red blue and green in order to see a wider range of color in our monitors and tvs like the Sharp 2nd gen TVs.
