Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures:

Description: SCP-XXXX is the collective name for any document detailing an educational chemistry demonstration involving the production of a substance referred to as "Hippo Hand Lotion." These documents may appear either in printed form or via e-mail, and may be addressed to specific individuals or an entire chemistry or physical science department. Individual recipients are invariably licensed chemistry or physical science educators.

All attempts to determine the source of the documents have failed; printed copies are not postmarked, and electronic versions lack identifying headers. In spite of this, recipients have stated that they implicitly trust the source, to the point of disregarding established safety procedures and governmental regulations.

SCP-XXXX-A is the collective designation for any demonstration utilizing the procedures outlined in SCP-XXXX. An SCP-XXXX-A event begins with the receipt of SCP-XXXX by a licensed chemistry or physical science educator. Upon reading the procedures completely, they will prepare for a demonstration following those procedures by purchasing all required chemicals and lab equipment, even if their institution already possesses them. At no time will members of their institution's administration question these actions, regardless of budgetary constraints or rules and regulations.

Once all the required materials are obtained, the educator will schedule a public demonstration. Depending on their institution and class schedule, the size of the audience will vary (recorded sizes range from 12 to over 1,500) and may consist of students, parents, other educators, and members of the media. Once the demonstration begins, all those in attendance will be compelled to remain until its conclusion, even if doing so would adversely affect them. Notably, attendees do not appear to require food or rest for the duration of the demonstration.

Each version of SCP-XXXX is different, varying in length, supplies and equipment required, experimental procedures and safety precautions.
