Does anyone else ever browse these to see the old (and frequently bad) SCPs?
Yeah… No. Can anyone verify these links are genuine?
It's the Wayback Machine. It saves copies of most of the internet through the years. Of course it's genuine.
When I followed the links my phone went a bit mad, that's all. I'm glad to report I haven't been identity thefted by a Nigerian.
Not yet, anyway.
Why is it always Nigerian princes, anyway? Are there even any kind of royalty in Nigeria?
HL2.exe has stopped working.
Description: SCP-097 is an antique, iron-cast mechanical bank in the shape of an African-American stereotype (black face, big smiling red lips, large white teeth) that was popular with children around the turn of the 20th century. A right arm sticks out with an open palm, where any denomination of coin is placed and the arm pushed down, released, flipping the coin into the bank's "mouth".
If an American coin minted between 1865 to present is used with this device, anyone present can faintly hear the hum and music of old Negro spirituals for around thirty seconds. Any coin minted before 1865 will elicit screams interspersed with the cracking of whips and cursing, along with the sounds of a fire raging. Very rarely, these vintage coins will result in what sounds like voodoo chanting and singing.
This is why some of these "Series I is better!" arguments make no sense to me. I know literary criticism is subjective and all, but Series II and Series III articles are largely better written, more creative, and more artistically valuable than Series I articles by any measure except fame or nostalgia.
