The SCP Foundation. It’s a wiki that takes the form of a large inventory of sorts of a secretive research foundation. Each entry is another “item” in the inventory. It’s not just objects, there are several living things, abstract things, large contraptions, etc…
I’ve already wasted a lot of time reading this site over. It’s sucks you in, because most entries have links to other entries, so you read those, which have links to others, etc…
A couple of my favorites so far:
Item SCP-294 appears to be a standard coffee vending machine, the only noticeable difference being an entry touchpad with buttons corresponding to an English QWERTY keyboard. Upon depositing fifty cents US currency into the coin slot, the user is prompted to enter the name of any liquid using the touchpad. Upon doing so, a standard 12-ounce paper drinking cup is placed and the liquid indicated is poured.
Document SCP-294a (regarding incident 294-01): On August 21, 2005, Agent Joseph ██████ attempted to utilize Item SCP-294 to obtain coffee during his allotted break time at 9:30 AM. At the request of Agent █████ █████████ “to see what it would do”, ██████ requested “a cup of Joe” from the item. Moments after confirming the selection, Agent Joseph ██████ began to sweat profusely and complained of dizziness before collapsing. After being moved to the infirmary, the medical team recovered the contents of the cup dispensed by Item SCP-294; a foul-smelling combination of blood, bits of flesh, and other various bodily fluids. Most disturbingly, testing revealed the DNA sequence of the biological material dispensed by Item SCP-294 matched that of Agent ██████.
Addendum [SCP-294ad]: Researcher produced request consisting solely of the phrase, “Surprise me.” Device produced a opaque cup containing normal water, later determined to have been superheated to about 200 degrees Celsius. Upon receiving vibration from transport, the contents of the cup turned into steam, violently spraying boiling water in a 2 meter range. Researcher reported a quantifiable level of surprise at the occurrence.
