Online bargain retailer Overstock.com has been hoarding end-of-days supplies for its employees, including a 30-day supply of food and a distribution system to pay and feed employees in case the banking and payments systems collapse. They allegedly have a $10 million stash of gold and silver. It's impressive, and also means Overstock is the only company similar to that crazy conspiracy theorist uncle in your family.

The CEO of Overstock, Patrick Byrne, explained why they're more than prepared:

I want a system that can survive a three-month freeze. If the whole thing collapses I want our system to continue paying people, we want to be able to survive a shutdown of the banking system.
