Doesn't emergence of strange flora when the birds are agitated contraindicate "standard traps"? Seems like you'd be better off gassing them, whether lethally or non-lethally.
Also "Addendum 01: It appears that when instances of SCP-1028 are in distress for a prolonged period of time, an emergence of one or more sprouts of unusually-colored flora in the vicinity of the distressed animal." seems to be missing a verb regarding the flora <doing something> in the vicinity.
Personally, I think the addition of the flora and alien worlds is unnecessary. Flocks of birds (angry birds!) that cause hallucinations are just fine as they are. Downvoted for now.
I dislike the hallucinations, but I think the pulling another world here with their music bit is nice. So I'm kind of the opposite of the guy above me.
I like how frank the interview is. Most interview logs you see on this site either have class-Ds freaking out or some kind of secretive resistance. This dude just had a hallucination and then talked about it. It's oddly refreshing. +1.
The tone is really careless here and kept me from enjoying the article.
Please note that this is supposed to be a scientific briefing from an all-powerful shadowy research organization. Use of the passive voice and the overuse of "should" do not fit into that setting.
I like this a lot.
Just by flocking into a populated area, these things could kill hundreds without even trying. And they have a near extra-dimensional feel to them.
On an unrelated note, I think the Foundation should open that aviary to researchers on their lunch hour.
I'm glad you get what I was trying for. And why do you think the aviary should be open to researchers during their lunch hour? If you have an idea, I'd love to hear it.
I like the overall idea, but while I am upvoting I think the closing statement needs to be gone. It's redundant on face, and unnecessary overall. Of course the amnesiacs were so he would forget, and I don't think the Foundation would bother to record what he's going to think instead.
