Special Containment Procedures: All satellite and flyover data of the SCP-4382's affected region must be actively censored. Roadblocks and checkpoints have been constructed along all roads leading to SCP-4382. Outpost 4382 has been constructed to monitor SCP-4382's expansion rate.

All personnel assigned to SCP-4382 must work in paired teams. Partners should be chosen with strong, preexisting relationships. If any member of staff begins to exhibit "looping" behaviors, the following measures should be employed:

1. Speak their name loudly and clearly. Use varying titles and nicknames.
2. Use light physical contact, such as shaking the shoulders or jostling.
3. Make sudden, loud noises such as clapping, snapping, or shouting.
4. Elaborate on a shared experience, or planned event. Focus on key sensory details.

If a staff member becomes fully locked in a "loop", immediately contact a member of medical staff.

Description: SCP-4382 is the town of Hulwick, Kentucky, U.S.A. Since October 18th, 2018, this town has been encased in a reality-altering anomaly, affecting 8.7km2 and expanding outward in a spherical radius at .5m2 per month. When viewed from the exterior, this sphere produces a mild visual distortion. Staff have described this phenomenon as "like the skin of a giant soap bubble."

All objects, animals, and people inside the town of Hulwick will continuously perform a single pattern of actions ad infinitum, and with total disregard for any physical laws.

This effect is poorly documented, as the area of SCP-4382 causes severe aliasing and static interruption in all forms of visual data. Audio transmissions appear unaffected. On May 18th, 2019, MTF-Xi-5 "Newtons Bullies"1 were dispatched to investigate this anomaly, and determine it's source.

Comment notes:

Don't you find it's harder when you're down?

Such an obvious reason, but nonetheless it's ours

Take the time to figure out the sound

Over and over and over and over
