I started listening to one of Tim Ferris podcasts who is head of the FBI and I want to get into technology when it’s getting into cyber security.
  11. What profession would you not like to do? There isn’t a profession that I would not attempt or not like to do. I’ve cleaned the bins out of London when there was a strike and the army had to go in and do it. That was fine, doing that service. I can’t think from working on a farm to being on trawlers on the ocean there is nothing I wouldn’t do. There’s nothing that really stands out that I wouldn’t do. I’d clean the streets if I had to.
  12. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Considering I’m not believing in God, I believe in universal energy, so if there was something that said, you know what Tony if I can give you one wish, what would it be, and it’s a very 60s statement, but it would really be to create more love on the planet more harmony without going too far down the hippie road, by taking loads of psychedelic drugs I think it would be a case of people realizing that everyone is just different. Some sort of glue that brings everyone together under a big pink umbrella of love.
