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.

Part of the reason this is known to exist is because of regulatory filings listing the company's financial assets. Precious metals in that quantity take swings with the market and impact Overstock's overall wealth. Byrne reports that they're hoarding this pile of precious metals at a secret facility in the same state as their corporate headquarters:

It’s in a safe space in Utah. Utah has a lot of safe places.

Nothing wacky or suspicious about the phrase "Utah has a lot of safe places." What else might they have buried out there?
