Happy Holidays from Spangler Subaru!



In 2018 our adventure got even better at Spangler Subaru.

Thank you for being a part of our journey. The contributions you make to the world give us the motivation to…

The Psychology in Mad Max: Fury Road

What was it behind Mad Max: Fury Road that made it resonate so deeply in many people who watched the movie? Was it the incredible special effects culminating in several epic fight scenes? Was it that George Miller released this fourth installment 30 years after the original trilogy? Or was it the pronounced symbolism of the ruling patriarchy and the voice of the female fighting back in this Hobbesian dystopia?

Their injuries were all from a similar device, although this was not from a mill explosion, nor from a mine collapse, and not even from a rogue equipment truck. These patients were all treated for the same exact problem: overdose from heroin…

How do potholes form?

Spring is almost here, and that means we look forward to the Pennsylvania truths: birds chirping, fisherman populating the rivers, endless rain storms, orange signs signaling impending road work, and our favorite- unabated crater-sized potholes. Some of these appear without any scientific explanation (like orange cones reducing traffic to one lane when literally nothing is being done to the other), while others have been studied and have a verifiable reason for their occurrence.

Why is the weather forecast never right?

This time last year I penned a blog detailing the amount of snowfall Johnstown receives yearly compared to other areas. In it, I gave a brief yet concise expository on the history of weather prediction. When I say brief, I mean about a Bachelor’s degree worth of information in two paragraphs. Nonetheless, lately I have heard numerous people comment on the efficacy of “the weatherman” and his predictions after temperatures ranged colder and snow…
