Arsen, now there will be quick questions. Don't think too much when answering:
Who would you most want to have dinner with, living or deceased?
My grandfather, for love, and Richard Branson - a man blessed by God.
Do you want to be famous? If so, in what?
I would like to be famous in entrepreneurship.
If you could live to be 90 and keep your mind or body as a 30-year-old for the last 60 years, which would you choose? Mind or body?
I am willing to be old, but by no means an invalid, bedridden, sedentary, etc. Visually, I am willing to be old, but I want my mind to be bright.
Name three traits that you and your spouse both have.
Damn, remembering her, I want to say beauty—actually, a sense of humor, perseverance and hard work.
What are you most grateful for?
I pray every day and say thank you for everything I have. For the fact that I have living parents, for the fact that I have the opportunity to help my loved ones, and for the fact that I have a wonderful family with wonderful children. I make a morning round before waking them up for school. This is my job; I wake them up and make them breakfast. And every time I kiss them and say thank you, Lord, for what I have. I am a grateful person in general. I am grateful for what I have.
If you could wake up tomorrow with some new skill or superpower, what would it be?
A person who, when touching someone, absorbs all the information that person has. Imagine, you speak Chinese, I tell you, Dina, hello. And now, I also speak Chinese.
What is most valuable to you in friendship?
What is your most cherished memory?
I was about two years old I got upset about something. It was in my grandfather's house. And he was barbecuing shashlik. And he dropped everything and went to ask me for forgiveness. I don't know; I remember some boundless love.
If you had to die by the end of today and not speak to anyone about anything left unsaid, what would you most regret not having said? And why haven't you said it yet?
I call my parents every day. On Sundays, we go out to breakfast together, we travel together, we were recently in Georgia, Israel, Jordan, and Dubai. Not that often, but twice a year, I try. But I have difficulty saying, "Mom, I love you," or "Dad, I love you," instead, I say, "Dad, Mom, how are you? How can I help? What do you need?" For some reason, I do not pronounce it; I don't know why. Maybe it was the upbringing. I don't remember being praised for anything. Maybe I was praised for something, but it wasn't often. For some reason, I don't say "I love you," but I should. When we finish this interview, I'll call and say it.
If you imagine your home burning down with all your possessions, and after saving all your loved ones and pets, if you have any, you have time to run back in and save something else from the flames, what would you take? And why?
Interesting. I do not get attached to things. And a pragmatist has come to my mind right now. I would only run back for a bag of documents; that's all because it is a hassle to restore documents. But otherwise, there is nothing. Screw it, let it burn. We will build another one.
