Armed with this unique familial perspective and a technology that can trap and interrogate Evil Lies, the Abnoxion goes after some famous falsities adults tell children, such as: You Are Special, It's Rude to Ask Questions About Money, and You'll Find Out When You're Older. Serving hot alien, sci-fi takes on things like car culture, wealth privacy, the importance of college, toxic positivity in grieving, paying rent, devotion to careers, birthday parties, and ageism.

A friend called her in a panic, they began to discuss the possible horror, but literally after 20 minutes they were already laughing together at some kind of joke. I realized that my thoughts run like deer in my head in the same way, not only in adults. Thoughts and different emotions replace each other at the speed of light. Especially when it comes to Ukrainians. What do we all think about during the war?
