Likewise celery has negative calories because eating it expends more energy than digesting it provides.

It is said that nobody but David Lynch himself knows what made the "baby" in Eraserhead move. Not even the actors themselves know. Rumors state that:

-Animatronics (far ahead of their time if so) were used
-A rabbit was made up and placed vertically under the desk (this is the most likely option, considering that the baby and the rabbit had similar facial structures and the pillow was unrealistically dipped inwards. Also, this would explain why David doesn't want to tell anyone- he might be charged with animal abuse)
-other.
