Provokator Mapazine Issue #33 March/April 2009

Press Release / Provokátor Magazine Issue 33, March - Březen /April - Duben 2009

We’re all going to die.

It is part of the plan; there’s nothing you can do to stop it. The moment you are born you begin to die. This is mortality. Ah, life.
There is nothing that naturally exists that lacks an expiration date. Even stars die (and I’m not talking about celebrities). They get so big and chemically cantankerous they implode and become vacuous black holes (now I’m talking about celebrities). Ah, death.
So why do we make things that will outlast us by eons? Though it is human nature to want to leave a mark on the face of time, should that be our goal?

FEATURE: Clip'n'Save by IMG

Provokator magazine accepts NO responsibility for the effectiveness of 'Clip & Saves' despite the many 1000's of hours of research we poured in, or loss/anguish that may result from NOT following this advice.

Confused? Good! Now clip out these handy reminders, and put them in the following locations, preferably where you will actually look at them...

HALL or FRONT DOOR (... step forth and be green!)

BEDROOM (attach this to your loved one's back, or porn stash if you're single)

PUB*IC AREA (COOL! FREE! LESBIAN HYPER-MEGA-SEX!... got your attention?)

LIVING-ROOM (as opposed to the death room!?)

KITCHEN (if you can't stand the heat in the kitchen... stop global warming)

BATHROOM (not down the toilet bowl)

FRIDGE (protect chilled beer from global warming...)

THE OFFICE (not just a British sitcom)
