Also, one of the main points for the Design Patterns book is not just to 
show you the patterns but give them names. Most of the patterns are 
things that were in wide use (or obvious) before the book was written. 
But now you can name a class BlargFactory, and people can tell just from 
the name what the purpose of the class is.

  Ever notice how people in a zombie movie never already know how to
  kill zombies? Ask 100 random people in America how to kill someone
  who has reanimated from the dead in a secret viral weapons lab,
  and how many do you think already know you need a head-shot?
