Hello fellow scientists! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more SCPs. Now, grab a protective suit, and let’s get started!

- The Fires of Pangloss SCP-1612 Object Class: Safe
Description: SCP-1612 is a previously unknown variation of soya bean plant. Instances of SCP-1612 continually secrete a volatile, pyrophoric oil from the central and peripheral zones of their apical meristems. The resultant flame (SCP-1612-1) is generally small and well-controlled, but intermittent flares have previously caused first-degree burns in nursery personnel. The source of additional mass SCP-1612 uses to produce the oil is yet to be determined. Experimentation has shown that SCp-1612-1 is extremely difficult to extinguish. Oxygen deprivation of below 3% by volume is required to prevent combustion of the secreted oil. It has been discovered that SCP-1612-1 is resistant to dousing. When SCP-1612 is submerged in water, SCP-1612-1 will continue to burn for several seconds before cessation. However, when SCP-1612 is re-introduced to standard conditions, SCP-1621-1 will reignite. Regular watering of SCP-1612 has shown to produce a reduction in activity from SCP-1612-1. SCP-1612 was initially discovered near the base of Mount Kazbek, Georgia at 42O40’N, 44O35’E. Since then, groves of SCP-1612 have been found in numerous locations on all seven continents, with each grove containing between 20 and 100 instances. The largest groves have been found in the Great Rift Valley, Kenya, and the Indus River Basin.
- The Rot Skull SCP-077 Object Class: Euclid
Description: SCP-077 appears to be the top half of a human skull engraved with runes, each filled with an unidentified black resin. The runes change every lunar month (defined by the full moon rising above the horizon in Ireland), as well as the winter and summer solstices, the spring and autumn equinoxes, and whenever a partial, annular, or total solar or lunar eclipse is visible from Ireland. If these engravings are not read aloud at least once within a 24-hour period, the eye sockets and nasal cavity of SCP-077 will emit SCP-077-1. SCP-077-1 is a luminescent green vapor whose precise nature remains undetermined; it is to be noted that, although SCP-077-1 behaves as a normal gas in all other ways, it only occupies those spaces which are within SCP-077’s effective “line of sight”, and does not flow into the space behind SCP-077 unless confined. Opaque impermeable barriers with no biological content can provide temporary protect from SCP-077-1; however, attempts to permanently contain SCP-077 within opaque containers have failed, due to the artifact’s production of sufficient quantities of SCP-077-1 to explosively rupture these containers. All biological material (with the obvious exception of SCP-077 itself) which comes into contact with SCP-077-1 is instantly transformed into viscous, malodorous ooze; the ooze has been identified as the rotted flesh of potato tubers which have been severely infected with potato blight. One (1) cubic centimeter of SCP-077-1 transforms upwards of 800 grams of biological material. Reading SCP-077’s engravings has noticeable, if transient, effects on the health of the readers. These effects include nausea, cramps, headache, dizziness, incontinence, fever, skin rashes, nosebleeds, and fugue states . Effects intensify as the time between readings increases, and can become cumulative for individuals who read the engravings too many times consecutively and/or too frequently. Readers have a 60% chance of developing an allergy to potatoes.
The artifact was recovered from BLANK BLANK in the village of [REDACTED], Ireland. Locals have built a shrine around the artifact , where upwards of [REDACTED] participants would engage in a nightly ritual.
Fragmentary historical documents, retrieved from the remnants of the village church (see archive 077-1576) and library (see archive 077-1582), indicate that the artifact existed as early as 1848, at which point in time it is described in highly positive terms – including ‘proctor’ and [REDACTED]. By 1869, however, references to the artifact are fearful, resentful, and couched in euphemism.
