TEM micrograph of SCP-5625

Description: SCP-5625 is a human-contractable negative-strand RNA virus that attacks the central nervous system of its host. Individuals infected with SCP-5625 typically display unfamiliarity with basic concepts, as well as a slight cough. An antiviral regimen has been proven to halt the progression of SCP-5625 infection and is currently in the final phase of testing.

SCP-5625 infection was initially diagnosed in Jason Nemo, an Anomaly Registration Agent assigned to Processing Facility 6. Agent Nemo was apprehended while attempting to register his own nose as an anomalous growth. After confirming that his lack of recognition was genuine, Agent Nemo’s cough led site management to preemptively institute a quarantine for fear of a contagious anomalous phenomenon. To date, 187 Anomaly Registration Agents based in Processing Facility 6 have been diagnosed with SCP-5625 infection.

Addendum: The following operational announcement has been logged due to its relevant content as required by RAISA Statute ID9807-E.

OPERATION NACIREMA

The average Anomaly Registration Agent identifies and registers about one anomaly every two weeks, on average. Considering that there is no known origin or initial date of infection for SCP-5625, there could be years’ worth of non-anomalous materials and organisms in our system. An overhaul is imperative. An ad-hoc Task Force has been formed for this purpose:

Assistant Researcher Alma Cortez – Quality Assurance Agent
Assistant Researcher Satomi Yamamoto – Quality Assurance Agent
Dr. Sullivan Boru, DDS – Remote Administrative Liaison

The core action item for this Task Force is to reconsider all objects and entities registered by agents with known cases of SCP-5625 infection. Erroneously registered entries will be processed at the discretion of Dr. Boru, with all relevant documentation automatically uploaded to SCP-5625's file.

Addendum 5625-1: The following reports have been logged by Operation Nacirema's Quality Assurance Agents as instances of erroneous registration as anomalous living entities.

RegID: ENT006-539424 Agent ID: ANREG86134072
Registration Description: Rat with overly hairy tail. Capable of coercing the elderly to feed it.
Ay, first non-anom spotted! Dr. Boru, here’s a squirrel for you. Am I doing this right? ~ Satomi
Yes, this format works. As long as you explain what it is, I can get it out of our system and into the proper channels. I think this little guy’s going to end up in the park. [Sully]
RegID: ENT006-443808 Agent ID: ANREG94063745
Registration Description: A fragile, patterned rock. When left alone, the limbs and head of a small creature emerge from it. The creature proceeds to drag the rock around.
Hermit crab. - Assistant Researcher Alma Cortez
RegID: ENT006-740678 Agent ID: ANREG83521120
Registration Description: Tall, spotted creature with horns and hooves. Primarily eats leaves.
Giraffe! Not gonna lie, finding these can be a little bit of a rush. ~ Satomi
RegID: ENT006-571350 Agent ID: ANREG21201978
Registration Description: Powerful sociomancer. Capable of dissolving any romantic union.
Divorce lawyer. They really couldn’t do this with an AI or automated code? - Assistant Researcher Alma Cortez
Turns out Foundation AICs don’t have the knowledge base required for this level of analysis. Sorry, Cortez. We’re all in this for the long run. [Sully]

RegID: GEO006-318676 Agent ID: ANREG99126962
Registration Description: A park in New Jersey where entities dressed as soldiers in the Civil War often reappear. Passers-by tend to act interested but not concerned.
War re-enactment. Is there any chance I can work remotely on this Task Force? - Assistant Researcher Alma Cortez
Sorry, InfoSec wouldn’t allow the remote access you’d need. They’re barely okay with me having it. [Sully]
RegID: GEO006-696716 Agent ID: ANREG16773901

Registration Description: Building that seemingly never ends. Considerably larger than any other I’ve ever seen.

Tricky one, but this is the Boeing factory in Washington! As a warning, Dr. Boru, I’m officially competing with Cortez to see who can find the most non-anoms. Mind keeping score for us? ~ Satomi
Already got the scoreboard set up. I respect your attempts to make “non-anoms” a real term. [Sully]
RegID: GEO006-578076 Agent ID: ANREG01698479
Registration Description: Undulating colorful spirit in the sky.
Aurora borealis. Please ignore anything that Yamamoto has said about me. Spending more than a week checking data will drive anybody insane. - Assistant Researcher Alma Cortez
Noted. [Sully]

Addendum 5625-3: The following reports have been logged by Operation Nacirema's Quality Assurance Agents as instances of erroneous registration as anomalous media.

RegID: MED006-339545 Agent ID: ANREG21201978
Registration Description: Book that causes a sense of unease, as if something is missing.
A translation of Georges Perec's novel La Disparition. Notably, the entire book is written without once using the letter 'e'. - Alma Cortez
Nice catch! [Sully]
RegID: MED006-139962 Agent ID: ANREG65137046
Registration Description: A movie that is somewhere between animation and live-action. No idea how they made this one.
Perfectly normal copy of A Scanner Darkly. Based on the novel by the same name by Philip K. Dick, an author I could never really get into. Admittedly, the rotoscoping does make me a bit queasy. But I don't think that's anomalous. - Alma Cortez
RegID: MED006-053329 Agent ID: ANREG21201978
Registration Description: A popular television series that depicts several entities contained by the Foundation with alarming accuracy.
This appeared to be a deluxe box-set of The X-Files. But just to be super sure that it isn't anomalous, Cortez and I are planning to watch it all together. Including, in the name of thoroughness, all 20 hours of bonus material. I know it sounds like a headache, but it's worth it to make sure this isn't going to cause an information leak. ~ Tomi
I certainly appreciate you two going above and beyond. In the future, though, feel free to not go so far, alright? I'd like to get through these records in my lifetime. [Sully]

Addendum 5625-4: The following reports have been logged by Operation Nacirema's Quality Assurance Agents as instances of erroneous registration as anomalous abstract concepts.

RegID: ABS006-555347 Agent ID: ANREG05685253
Registration Description: An unnerving sense that I've been here before. Note: I had not been there before.
Deja vu. This group of records is going to be insufferable, isn't it? - Alma
Yep. Enjoy! [Sully]
RegID: ABS006-171928 Agent ID: ANREG86134072
Registration Description: The tendency of some individuals to act with no conceivable material gain.
This is literally just the concept of altruism. Should we be worried about the guy who registered this one? ~ Tomi
I'll handle it. Good catch. [Sully]
RegID: ABS006-256177 Agent ID: ANREG83521120
Registration Description: I have several bland memories from childhood that I've found to be false.

Sounds similar to Freud's concept of screen memory.

On another note, I just sent over a quick notification that Tomi and I have begun seeing each other. I apologize in advance if that makes anything weird. - Alma

Yeah, I saw that. I wish you two the best of luck, if only so I don't have to deal with the fallout. [Sully]
RegID: ABS006-810631 Agent ID: ANREG83521120
Registration Description: A warm feeling felt while looking at close family members.
Is this the concept of love? That's a bit sad. - Alma
RegID: ABS006-430260 Agent ID: ANREG65137046
Registration Description: I have found that I get inexplicably sad while watching videos from my childhood.
Is it meta to say that forgetting about nostalgia is sad? Layers of sadness. Oof. ~ Tomi
RegID: ABS006-061613 Agent ID: ANREG01698479
Registration Description: Previously-unknown color created by mixing red, green, and blue paint. Very plain.
Looks like brown! Also, Alma and I are dating. She definitely already emailed you about it, but I'm taking the opportunity to brag. ~ Tomi
Duly noted. [Sully]

Addendum: The following email was sent to an account currently assigned to this document.

Addendum 5625-5: The following reports have been logged by Operation Nacirema's Quality Assurance Agents as instances of erroneous registration as anomalous objects.

RegID: OBJ006-153303 Agent ID: ANREG99126962
Registration Description: The remains of a bridge that tore itself to pieces.
Tacoma Narrows Bridge, specifically. I've attached a quick explainer on the topic of harmonic oscillation and its effects on suspension bridges. - Alma
Googled it. Looks good. Nice catch. [Sully]
RegID: OBJ006-114451 Agent ID: ANREG05685253
Registration Description: The crown throne of Denmark. Material is said to be unicorn horn.
Close! It's narwhal horn. Should I be concerned that we've had the throne of Denmark in containment for at least two and a half years? ~ Tomi
You shouldn't. I probably should. Nice catch. [Sully]
RegID: OBJ006-880975 Agent ID: ANREG16773901
Registration Description: A heavy metal object. Capable of manifesting small holes in anything it's pointed at.
An agent registered his own gun. We have reached a new low. - Alma
RegID: OBJ006-339127 Agent ID: ANREG94063745
Registration Description: Twenty cases of anomalously carbonated French wine. Tastes divine.
Like tasting the stars, huh? That's champagne, obviously. Save us a bottle, Sull. ~ Tomi
Are you kidding? There's twenty cases. You can each have two bottles. [Sully]
RegID: OBJ006-793144 Agent ID: ANREG65648404
Registration Description: A small silver ring. The stone set into it is anomalously hard and reflects light oddly.
I sent you an email about this one. I know it's a rather big request and it might seem like I'm planning too far ahead, but it's best to be prepared. - Alma
Very cogently put. It'd get trashed anyway, so it's all yours. From all I've seen of the two of you so far, it's an honor to be a small part of what comes next. [Sully]
