O’Rahilly? Sorry, I didn’t read carefully.

How did you know my dad liked Tubular Bells?! He made me play it on my piano (some Vangelis within his reach he played himself; his instrument was a bass guitar and his band was invited to tour around the US with som big name, but he didn’t go because my mom said she wouldn’t wait for him- which brings me back to my previous rant, why modern women chase men who love other women or things more? he didn’t blow up anything for her afaik).

RoR was grandson of "The O'Rahilly"
My grandad was there in 1916 and survived, otherwise my pen would be still.

Brave men, war heroes. Similar story about my grandpa. If the family didn't have tons of money (sold their whole land at the time) to pay every scumbag in the local communist aparat, and the infamous Lublin Castle in particular, at least one of my X chromosomes would feel different. It feels so empowering that it's my mtDNA - the life engine - which goes into the child, regardless of its sex.
