"What would you changes if you would run this company?"

Well, first of all i would hire some guards to prevent stealing and production halts. Depending on how the other companies are doing i would try to have at least one more guard then everybody else!

When i set up all the defensive stuff i would perhaps try to do some sneaky deals with the guys from overseas (perhaps even trade some stuff away and then steal it back - but only in an case of emergency). Besides that i would probably shift the production from computers to more valuable stuff like say clay or stone - damn rare stuff lately - but i think you know that!

If things are really running well i would try to build an extra long road around our company. If it's leading anywhere or not doesn't really matter much - most important thing is that it's long.

Btw, i could only make profit on my turn. So 3/4 of the week i would only sit on the phone and trying to pull off some good deals.. but that's the way we've done it all the time

Q: This job may require a lot of travel. Can you handle that?

A: Handle it? Hell, I'll get rich doing it if you put me on the carriers where I'm the majority stockholder.

This job may require a lot of overtime. Can you handle that?

Come on, you've asked me this question four times already.

Um. No I haven't.

I know you don't remember, but you have. This is not the first time I've passed through this segment of the timeline.

So, overtime?

Don't worry. I have no problems with time and your narrow perception thereof.

Q: What is your typical way of dealing with conflict? Give me an example.

A: Doomsday device. Usually with a cobalt salted nuclear device. The idea of the cobalt bomb originated with Leo Szilard who publicized it in Feb. 1950, not as a serious proposal for weapon, but to point out that it would soon be possible in principle to build a doomsday device that could kill everybody on earth. So I don’t have an example per say, just a theory.
