Lore Name: Benjamin Walker
Rank: Junior Researcher
Clearance Level: 02
List of personnel involved in testing: Junior Researcher Ben Walker; SCP 173, Unnamed Security Officers, Junior Researcher Lamarr.
Level D Personnel involved: Jslchatt, Daz.
Hypothesis: SCP-173, the "you blink you die" statue is prone to neck snapping if no retained eye-contact. The test on SCP-173 was to conduct if it would indulge in human parts after death or further more kill them on general attitude, generally, I suspect it would be nothing more than a couple of minutes till both die.
Observation: After putting 2 d-class in, blindfolded and set to a wall, the door was shut and given a proper solitude. The room now empty and quiet, the d-class voiced to the statue in the room a deal or proposal that they had done nothing wrong and shouldn't be killed as if they could work things out. Reluctantly, both were kept alive until the test conceded and had to end; which both broke free and had to be put down.
Visual Stimuli (Photos/videos): Not available.
Errors and/or safety hazards: Two D-Class personnel broke containment causing a small fuss, but nothing more.
Conclusion: Thought, and/or feelings are seen to be prevalent in 173; it could be confusion or a curious state of mind to why it didn't execute both of them, but it was quite a remarkable exploit. If worked with further, the SCP could be labelled "SAFE". It's only a vision, but a strong one to de-weaponize for the safety of the foundation.
