SCP-1916: Zero-Gee-Whiz! Moon Rocks™
SCP-1916 consists of six hard sugar confections of the type commonly referred to as “jawbreakers” or “gobstoppers”, designated SCP-1916-1 through SCP-1916-6. Chemical analysis indicates that SCP-1916 are primarily composed of sugar and trace amounts of common food additives and colorings, as well as significant quantities of [REDACTED]. Each individual candy is spherical, measuring approximately 3 cm in diameter, and is brightly colored in a distinct pattern as follows;
- SCP-1916-1 is a uniform shade of bright red.
- SCP-1916-2 is colored a light beige with whitish streaks.
- SCP-1916-3 is white with several darker sections arranged in a pattern resembling the Earth’s moon.
- SCP-1916-4 possesses several horizontal streaks colored orange and white, with several small white and red spots, including a single large red spot.
- SCP-1916-5 is a uniform shade of black.
- SCP-1916-6 is a uniform shade of black with a large white question mark printed across one side.
SCP-1916’s anomalous effects manifest when an individual candy is consumed by a human being. Within 10-20 minutes of consumption, the individual’s weight will increase or decrease by a fixed percentage based on which candy the subject has consumed. No physical change in the subject’s size or mass has been observed in conjunction with this effect; the means by which SCP-1916 produces this effect is not currently understood. The subject will function as though the gravitational field of their current environment has been significantly altered; subjects testing SCP-1916 have in certain instances demonstrated an ability to jump or carry well in excess of normal human ability, and in several instances have proven able to escape Earth’s gravitational field entirely as the result of their own physical ability. This effect lasts for approximately 90 minutes before gradually dissipating. Test subjects who survive the effects of SCP-1916 show no indications of long-term illness. Additional effects have been associated with particular candies; refer to Experiment Log 1916 for details.
