I dropped my Outback at a Subaru service center today for an airbag recall and asked where the logo came from and what it means. They gave me this hand out FYI: --- As the first automaker to use a Japanese word as its name, Subaru has established a universal brand identity thanks to global use...
Hi everyone, I've been trying to find the meaning of Subaru, some web sites say it means "united" in Japanese but my son asked his Japanese teacher and she said the word has no meaing in Japanese... Anyone know what it really stands for? :confused:
Fyi, Pleiades is also known as Messier #45. So on a sky chart, if you see M45, thats it.
Back in Messier's day, they were gaga over comet hunting. So with the bare eye or rudimentary scopes of the day, he listed and mapped all fuzzy objects that he could find, that were determined NOT to be comets, so that people wouldn't waste time on them to determine if they were comets, lol.
The fuzzy clouds that most closely resembled comets, but weren't, were termed nebulas. As in, nebulous things that wasted many an observing night.
Today the Messier list is the go-to list of cool things to look at. Trust me, I know. My autism spectrum kid has made it his mission to find them all.
Years ago I was out in Canyonlands National Park in Utah. At night drove up into the park, got out and walked 5 feet from the car. Could not see the car at all.

Someone pulled up for gas at work yesterday driving a new Rav. I saw he had a local Toyota dealer emblem on his jacket.
I mentioned that I was on the fence with my purchase of my car, between a Rav and an Outback.
Obviously he poopooed the Subie but he mentioned something that many people say...
Anybody sell a car to Carvana or Vroom and if so did the transaction go well?
We are selling our 2019 premium with 7600 miles on it.
We like the car well enough but are both retired and decided to downsize to one vehicle for a while..
