Your collapsible is borked. Otherwise I enjoy, +1
Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!
I've written a tale upvoted by Djoric, Bright, Echo, Yoric, Moose, VAE and Voct, fite me irl if you don't respect
A pompous entity which attempts to give the appearance of being profound. I like it.

Isn't it the job of the containment procedure section to say what is appropriate?
I'd love a slightly more final ending. I see the fun of asking about destroying SCP-682, but really we know full well that this thing is pretty stupid-why do we think it could tell us? Or give us an answer worth taking seriously?
I like the implications this thing gives. The device itself is a parroting idiot, but whoever directed it's creation obviously knew something we don't. And if whatever eldritch, techno-gods it refers to are still alive then they're obviously close to making a move.
All in all it's a better execution of the idea than Prometheus. /Ridleyscottburn
I like this thing preaching the virtues of mastering steam power and industrialisation. It is now the Mr. Burns Box in my headcanon.
"Bah! I will not provide information to any organization that does not yet make wider use of the autogyro!"
Eh… it feels like it's been done, even though I can't say where. How did they know to capitalize Electricians in the interview?
Realistically none of the words would be capitalized since Morse code only uses one case. I capitalized it for ease of reading - it can be assumed from context that "Electricians" refers to a group or organization rather than simple electrical engineers, so it's capitalized.
You know, on reading this again, I do find it kind of fun. Happy face.
Communication with this thing seems a bit too painfully slow. I'd speed it up a bit, if only so that I don't have to feel so sorry for the interviewers assigned to this thing. I found the question about destroying 682 to be kinda shoehorned in there. It's a pretty abrupt change from the previous line of questioning.
Also, I love this line:
Dr. Samesh: Is that a no?
SCP-1852-1: No is another way of saying yes.
The object in question is not 682, and the doctor wasn't expecting any useful information in response - he merely wanted to observe the entity's reaction.
As for the speed of the conversation, it did deliver a 17-page monologue in the form of Morse code.
