Registered Phenomena Code: 808

Object Class: Alpha-Yellow

Hazard Types: Emotional Hazard, Ideological Hazard, Grouped Hazard, Transmutation Hazard, Mind-Regression Hazard

Containment Protocols: RPC-808 is to be contained in a secure containment locker at Site-007. Access to RPC-808 is restricted to personnel with Level-3 clearance or higher. Any personnel may petition to experiment with RPC-808 with approval required by two Level-3 research personnel or higher.1

Description: RPC-808 is a hand-carved white marble cup of approximately 7.5 cm in height and 5cm in width. It has an internal capacity of 124.3 mL and weighs 184.26 grams.

RPC-808 exhibits no apparent anomalous properties besides the memetic effect of causing subjects when viewing at RPC-808, to be thirsty. It neither compels viewers to make use of it nor does anything to entice use beyond the minor thirst effect. This effect dissipates harmlessly within three minutes upon breaking visual contact with RPC-808.

Additional anomalous properties manifest when a subject introduces a minimum of 100 mL of fluid into it at which point the subject becomes compelled to drink the contents. Attempts to prevent the subject from drinking the contents of RPC-808 are met with violent resistance on the part of the subject until they are able to do so.

When fluid has been poured into RPC-808, any attempts to pour a second fluid into it is met with an unknown force that causes the fluid to divert from the top of RPC-808. Fluids mixed before introduction to RPC-808 may be poured in without this trouble. Once RPC-808 has been sufficiently filled, no method has been shown to be able to empty it besides consumption by subject or termination of subject. Testing with CSDs shows termination to inevitably cause RPC-808 to be knocked over or otherwise spill its contents in 100% of recorded tests.

The results of consumption are different with every kind of fluid tested. It would appear that the concept of the fluid is more important than the actual chemical makeup. For instance, two tests made with two different types of grape juice showed matching results despite one being 100% fruit juice and the other being from concentrate, water, and added sugar. This means testing is limited to the type of drink, not the chemical makeup. The final result of RPC-808's effects on subjects appears to be determined by the taste of the fluid and the perception of the subject deciding what kind of fluid it is. This is supported by the results of Test Log RPC-808-08. Please refer to logs for further details.
