SCP-XXXX in containment, watching television

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is contained in a specially constructed humanoid holding cell on the surface of site ███, furnished with a single bed and appropriate bed ware, a table, a CRT TV showing appropriate content for the north eastern united states, an ashtray, table and two chairs. At all times, a fully stocked carton of cigarettes is to be provided, as well as a daily paper detailing events, and must not under any circumstances contain any references to anything that would be considered politically sensitive, "Liberal", or anything disparaging the United States of America. Any personnel entering the containment area must wear uniforms bearing the logo of the "Placid acres" retirement home.

A full medical staff is to be on standby 24/7, with facilities to perform a heart transplant immediately. A supply of medical grade oxygen and accompanying face mask is to be kept within reaching distance of SCP-XXXX at all times.

Despite their harmful nature, cigarettes cannot be withdrawn from SCP-XXXX as he will become noticeably agitated, complaining about "them god damn ██████" trying to take his cigarettes.

SCP-XXXX is to be taken for brief walks in the surrounding grounds to encourage good health and healthy foodstuffs, prepared to resemble typically unhealthy steak and French fries, are to be given at mealtimes. At all times SCP-XXXX is to be monitored for signs of deteriorating health, should any serious deterioration occur, the O5 council is to be notified immediately.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an elderly white male, 6'1 in height, of average to heavy build, with graying hair. SCP-XXXX entered foundation custody on October 29th 19██, after several small and one large earthquake were found to have a focal point on a retirement home near ████ ███, Idaho. SCP-XXXX answers to the name bill, however his real name is William ████████. SCP-XXXX has no anomalous background, and no clues to the nature or source of the subjects anomalous effects cannot be located. SCP-XXXX suffers from a variety of illnesses, ranging from a mild form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, heart failure, frequent bouts of eosinophilic pneumonia as well as the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, and does not remember entering foundation custody.

SCP-XXXXs demeanour is difficult to tolerate for site staff. SCP-XXXX will frequently curse at staff, using whatever object comes to hand to strike staff that make a mistake or displease the subject in any fashion. SCP-XXXX will lash out at non-white members of staff and frequently uses racist and derogatory language to refer to such. SCP-XXXX will not tolerate any discussions of traditional liberal ideas or concepts, and as such must be avoided around the subject. Contact with Non-White members of staff is to be minimised where possible.

The anomalous properties of SCP-XXXX manifest when his heart rate slows. This most frequently occurs when SCP-XXXX coughs. Coughing can be when triggered when SCP-XXXX becomes agitated to the point that he will begin to swear so much he does not use his oxygen, if cigarettes are unavailable or during a medical emergency.

Any slowing of heart rate in the subject will invariably cause an earthquake of equal proportions in the Earths crust. When the subjects lungs are severely agitated and heart rate slows significantly, such as during a coughing fit or, momentarily, if the subject sneezes, will produce powerful shock waves in the crust of the planet, with the strongest recorded being above 9 on the Richter scale before monitoring equipment was destroyed.

Current estimates on the strength of the earthquakes caused by the subject do not have an upper bound. Some foundation researchers believe a full denouement may have the power to rip the entire planet in two, thereby causing an XK-Class end of the world scenario.

Subject does not seem to be aware of the anomalous effects he is having on the surface of the planet, shrugging off tremors and full on quakes with "back in my day, we didn't have so many quakes. Its 'cause of the ██████ █████ our drinkin' water".

Termination is not advisable, as forceful stopping of the subjects heart could produce shock waves that the planet may not survive. It's been surmised that a heart transplant may be possible, as keeping the heart beating may be sufficient to ward off any possible XK-Class End of the world scenario.

Note from O5 Council: Too risky at this point, site ██ was wiped off the map by this guy. Even the best surgeons in the world would need minutes to remove the heart. The planet could be in fragments by then. Come up with something else. -O5 ████

Note from O5 Council: I've added a full medical staff capable of a heart transplant to the special containment procedures.
If he dies it's our best shot. If any of you have any other suggestions, now's the fucking time -O5 ██████████
