Dr. Ke's handmade description of SCP-CN-123-J, explaining why seven urinals cannot be used by four people

rating: +1+x

Item #: SCP-CN-123-J

Object Class: Keter Eucild Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Because of its wide propagation, it is impossible to be completely contained. The foundation is working hard to eliminate SCP-CN-123-J's effects, but with very limited outcomes.

(updated on 14/5/2018) The foundation has found out a way to eliminate the effect of SCP-CN-123-J perfectly by the genius design of Dr. Ke, and is now working on promoting it globally, but with very limited outcomes.

(updated on 17/5/2018) Class Two assistant researcher Huskar proposed a more constructive suggestion: dividing neighbouring urinals with boards. The investigations of the foundation has showed that this suggestion had already been applied to more than half of China's public restrooms. According to RAD's anlysis, SCP-CN-123-J can be contained compelety with appropriate boards (with appropriate length, height and width). A peripheral company called Special Cleanroom Planning Corporation is assigned to promote this way globally.

Description: SCP-CN-123-J is an abnormal cognitive influence which only happens on males. Its main manifestion is that influenced males (designated as SCP-CN-123-J-1) will comply with the two rules below whenever possible when urinating in public restrooms with urinals:

  • choosing the urinal which is farthest from others, and choosing the farthest urinal from the door when there is no other person in the restroom.
  • there is at least one unoccupied urinal between any two people.

SCP-CN-123-J-1 would continue to urinate when these two rules can not be complied, but they would have psychological changes for a short time, usually coming up with saddness and slight anxiety; but SCP-CN-123-J-1 will feel a little overwhelming frustrated in some situations1.

Nothing has been found as the catalyst to SCP-CN-123-J's propagation. It is conjectured that it is part of our instinct.

I'm just confused, its only excreting in the restroom, why are you staying so far from each other? -Dr. Hannah

No, you won't understand, you females excreting in the single rooms won't understand. It's just as unbearable as two guys using one urinal! -Dr. Ke

Well then, okay. -Dr. Hannah

Note: Dr. Ke is being investigated for suspection on sexual harassment to Dr. Hannah.

Addendum: A chart of the relationship between the number of males going to excret and urinals needed to go on excreting normally:
number of males number of urinals
1 1
2 3
3 5
4 8
5 9
6 14
7 15

Note: more computings stopped temporarily due to Dr. Ke's refusal.

Really, why the heck did I compute this? -Dr. Ke

Addendum 2:
In 14/5/2018, Dr. Ke speaked in random proposed "why don't we just add the place of a urinal between two urinals" in the research on SCP-CN-123-J. The propose was judged immediately as the effective way to contain SCP-CN-123-J. The containment procedure was updated.

What a waste of room to add places between urinals, could we just use boards to divide them? -Class Two assistant researcher Huskar
