Be careful what you say or text on the phone in the Czech Republic, someone could be listening to you ... that is unless you have 007. If you are older than 50 and happen to have only one eye, where is it most advantageous to be a peeping tom, Russia or Texas? Why do 45 percent of Taiwanese women refuse to use public toilets? Provokátor answers these questions and more while monitoring the state of VOYEURISM & SURVEILLANCE in the world today.

Provokator and the Instigator Media Group have taken the Ž and are holding it for ransom. In it's stead we've put a spiral similar to the one that forms in the foreign eye upon first viewing the Czech language, and the subsequent realization that not only are you not in Kansas anymore and that yellow brick road is actually a lengthy pee stain coming from the corner pub.
