Hello fellow researchers! It’s Tuesday, and the Foundation is open once again! I hope you guys are ready for another fascinating specimen. Now, grab your Class S protective equipment, and let’s get started!
- Filth SCP-2194 Object Class: Keter
Description: SCP-2194 is a phenomenon affecting densely-populated urban areas, which appears to manifest in the presence of persistently excessive qualities of refuse and waste.
SCP-2194 manifests as an amorphous mass of refuse, dead micro-organisms, fecal matter, live bacteria, assorted particulate matter and other forms of biological and non-biological waste. It is currently unknown whether the initial mass of SCP-2194originates as non-anomalous waste that assumes anomalous properties, or forms spontaneously through other means. SCP-2194 propagates via direct physical contact, gradually spreading to adjacent surfaces as a brownish film of waste and particulate. Refuse, waste and dead biological matter becomes incorporated into the mass of SCP-2194 on contact.
Should material affected by SCP-2194 come into directed contact with any surface, including the skin of a live organism, it will leave a “stain” at the point of contact. This stain spreads at a relatively slow rate (< 1cm squared per hour) – however, any attempt to abrade, dissolve, corrode or otherwise remove this stain results in the formation of an amount of material roughly double the amount removed. Avian and mammalian subjects exposed to SCP-2194 are invariably distressed by the appearance and growth of the stain, becoming increasingly frantic in their attempts to remove it. This behavior causes the rapid spread of SCP-2194 material across the body surface.
Once SCP-2194 material covers at least 33% of a live organism’s body surface, the organism becomes an instance of SCP-2194-1. Instances of SCP-2194-1 are capable of spreading SCP-2194 via direct physical contact and display extremely unhygienic behavior, characterized by an obsession with both SCP-2194-1 and other, non-anomalous forms of waste. These behaviors include, but are not limited to: covering self in waste; covering nearby objects and surfaces in waste; collecting large quantities of refuse and dead material to add to the main mass of SCP-2194; immersing self in SCP-2194; ingesting SCP-2194; and attempting to [DATA EXPUNGED] causing SCP-2194 to spread to other individuals.
Instances of SCP-2194-1 typically expire within 5-7 days of exposure, often due to suffocation caused by the formation of an overwhelming amount of waste material in the lungs and the air passages. Larger organisms may remain alive as long as 18 days before expiring from the effects of blood poisoning and necrotizing fasciitis.
SCP-2194 can be partially removed by sustained exposure to an open flame; however, its regenerative properties in response to attempted removal allow a minimum of 10% of the material to remain on the surface even after several minutes of continuous burning. Incineration is 100% effective in the neutralization of instances of SCP-2194-1.
The most effective containment method currently known is the use of an expanding foam sealant to cover all surfaces affected by SCP-2194. Provided that the sealant is applied thoroughly and within a space of 2 hours. SCP-2194 is capable of spreading to the exterior surface of the seal in no less that 200 hours. Timeous reapplication prevents this occurrence.
Addendum 2194_01: As of (BLANK/BLANK/2014), SCP-2194 quarantine zones exist. No means of permanent removal or disposable of SCP-2194 have yet been identified. Research is ongoing.
