Many of my friends refer to me as the -original- "Zombie Apocalypse" guy because for roughly 35 years "When the Zombies come" has been my euphemism for being at least modestly ready for emergencies/disaster/social upheaval (as in the LA riots). To the absolute astonishment of my friends and associates, I have begun to actively disassociate myself from the whole "Zombie" thing at this point. It used to be a way for me to address some serious disaster prep issues with a bit of levity so as to avoid overwhelming the trainee with what can be a fairly intense topic with a lot of psychological and emotional baggage. Then things started to get "commercialized" and "trendy". Well that's fine because a quality bit of survival equipment like a good blade, or pistol grips, that happen to be neon green, can still be a good bit of equipment. But the whole thing has "jumped the shark" and now, it's just a purely commercialized for profit fad with people pushing the most amazing variety of utter crap. So I have no problem with others enjoying the "zombie slime green" trend but as for me, I'm done. When the fad phase finally passes, maybe I can regain the use of my favorite euphemism.
