Item #: SCP-C252

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: While SCP-C252 has been denied a URL, attempts to take it offline entirely have been unsuccessful. Thus, SCP-C252's IP address has been added to the global blacklist of all major internet providers.

SCP-C252 may be used to generate disposable material en masse for use in other containment procedures. As instances of SCP-C252-1 present a moderate health hazard, a setup that involves little or no direct human interaction should be implemented.

Any disruptions in the collector beverage market should be investigated for SCP-C252 involvement.

Description: SCP-C252 is a website formerly located at http://beverages.aq1 and currently accessible only via its IP address. SCP-C252 is written in rudimentary HTML with very little styling. SCP-C252 contains two pages, titled "News" and "Beverages". The 'News' section contains several messages from the site's creator and displays no anomalous properties.

The 'Beverages' section is an unorganized directory of 18,104 files, each with the extension ".slurp" and a gibberish filename. Each file contains 147 to 281 bytes of similar gibberish.2 Whenever one of these files is opened, a fully stocked and functional beverage refrigerator (designated SCP-C252-1) will appear 13cm above the device used to open it. If precautions are not taken, this typically results in the device's destruction and injury to the user.

Each instance of SCP-C252-1 is unique to its corresponding file; no duplicates have been identified, either in construction or content. All drinks found in SCP-C252-1 were produced between May of 1989 and August of 1999. Consequently, they are almost always expired and generally unsafe for consumption. All drinks correspond to real, non-anomalous beverages that were sold between 1989 and 1999, though many are rare or obscure.

SCP-C252-1 each contain several thousand non-anomalous bird droppings, mostly from pigeons, covering the drinks and interior surfaces. Unlike the drinks, these droppings are fresh, seeming to have been deposited no more than an hour prior to SCP-C252-1's manifestation. No other signs of habitation by birds have been found in SCP-C252-1.

SCP-C252 was discovered after the 2011 death of ████ Lieu, a prominent soft drink collector and dealer who had been using SCP-C252 to acquire rare and discontinued products. The cause of death was reported as cryptococcosis. Based on reports of hand injuries in December of 2006, Lieu is assumed to have discovered SCP-C252 sometime around then.
