Just scanning through Yahoo! News today I found this article.. It's about time

http://news.yahoo.com/seriously-government-warns-citizens-zombie-apocalypse-urge-better-230018621.html

Quote:
The theory: If you're prepared for a zombie attack, the same preparations will help during a hurricane, pandemic, earthquake or terrorist attack.


Another link at the end of that article points to a blog at the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

Yup, that's always the way I've seen it as well. Hope I don't get lynched on this site for saying this, but I don't actually expect a zombie apocalypse to happen. I do however expect any and all kinds of emergencies. From natural disasters to civil turmoil, zombie preps cover it all.

Trust me man, none of us actually believe in zombies :lol: well, might be a few folks on here that do, but they are the exception not the rule.

Funny, I saw this story as well. On the one hand, you can kind of say that the gov't is ripping ZS idea(and if they aren't actually knowingly doing that, the similarities are uncanny). I don't know if thats a bad thing, if it gets people to prepare, then it's helping ZS fulfill its intended purpose. At the same time, if someone wants to criticize a ZS member for being a "zombie nut" or whatever in a social or (hopefully not) legal situation, you can always counter that the Federal Government is using Zed as promo tool for preparedness too.
