SCP-147 Anachronistic Television | Euclid | Cognitohazard / appliance


Item #: SCP-147
Object Class: Euclid Special Containment Procedures: SCP-147 is
to be kept in a simulacrum of a 1950s-era living room. Its current container contains
a throw rug, two armchairs, a phonograph, a rotary telephone, and other suitable decorations.
SCP-147 will reject any items dating from later than late March, 1965 (See Addendum
0-40). It requires no external power source or connection. Description: Discovered 1983 in a civilian
home in Detroit, Michigan. SCP-147 appears to be a 1957 General Electric brand black-and-white
television, model 17TO26. SCP-147 has been observed to exhibit two different behaviors: Optimal: When SCP-147 is in an acceptable
room, it will display broadcasts of 1950s-era comedies, such as The Burns and Allen Show,
Father Knows Best, and I Love Lucy. In every case, each broadcast has been completely unique:
archives of the programs, none of which are still being produced, have failed to find
any record of the episodes that SCP-147 plays. No commercials are shown, and there is no
indication as to which station would be broadcasting these shows. All broadcasts are in black and
white. Subjects exposed to SCP-147 in its optimal state reported a pleasant feeling
of relaxation. In this state, the item’s volume and channels can be adjusted, though the off
switch appears to have no effect. Hostile: When modern-day items are present
in SCP-147’s environment, the item will only display extremely violent and gruesome color
footage; beheadings, rapes, executions, and torture have all been observed, but as of
yet no footage has been broadcast that indicates when or where the scenes depicted took place.
The footage is invariably of high visual and audio quality. Subjects exposed to SCP-147
in its hostile state almost invariably vomit due to the graphic nature of the broadcasts
after ten to fifteen seconds; one subject suffered a nervous breakdown after two minutes
of exposure. Every subject has displayed an extreme reluctance to recall the contents
of the broadcasts, and two out of the fifteen subjects tasked with viewing SCP-147’s hostile
broadcasts have since committed suicide. None of the item’s controls respond during hostile
broadcasts. Attempts to examine the internals of SCP-147
have been unsuccessful, as the item’s shell resists any and all attempts to crack it open.
Placing the item in a Faraday cage in order to negate any possible transmissions it could
be receiving had no effect. The effects of long-term exposure to SCP-147 have not been
documented. Addendum: Any and all recreational activities
involving SCP-147 are to be scheduled at least one week beforehand with approval by Level
4 personnel. Addendum [0-40]: See File TC-147-B for further
details. After [DATA EXPUNGED] suggestion, several objects manufactured throughout the
1960s era were brought in. Objects made past March of the year 1965 have resulted in a
hostile behavior. Exact dating is difficult due to troubles of obtaining materials precisely
made on testable dates and times. Reasons as to why it acts in such a way depending
on a specific object’s date are unknown, and being tested by [DATA EXPUNGED]. Addendum [0-40a]: As has been verified repeatedly,
the presence of persons born after March 1965 does not in and of itself trigger a hostile
event. For reasons still unknown, SCP-147 objects mainly to manufactured items. Dr.
████████ ████ recently conducted an experiment in which he clothed
himself with vintage (pre-1965) articles of clothing, with the caveat that he had three
Bic Flair pens (invented in the 1970s) in his shirt pocket. What he saw while seated
in front of SCP-147, he would later describe as “a bizarre episode of I Love Lucy featuring
a surprising amount of gunplay.” Addendum [1-80]: Recent tests that involved
exposing convicted rapists and psychopaths to the object while it was hostile has indicated
that the object is able to tailor the images to the viewer. A rapist was strapped into
a metal chair manufactured in 1986, and during that time not a single rape was shown on the
screen, while scenes of genital mutilation (primarily male) occurred more often. Similarly,
a psychopath who had tortured someone to death saw fewer scenes of torture, and more scenes
of botched executions.

  1. Object made after march 1965 turn the tv hostile? Does a cereal box count? If I bring old 1960/50s creral box and create something in the room like a children's craft and play does that count as new to the tv/over 1960 since i made it in the year like 2000? Does drawing count as new too if I made it in that room? I mean it just created and not created in the 1960, will the tv turn hostile when I finist mt cardboard craft and drawing?
    What I'm saying is does new creation made out of old material count/made the tv hostile even if i made it in the very room/in front of the tv's face?

  2. So you can't look inside it no matter what tool you have? What if it's you dropped it from space over the rockies?
