a holy number.

In the bible, when Jesus told the fishermen to cast their nets in a certain spot, they caught 173 fish.

the 17 represents completeness, I think, and the 3 represents the Holy Trinity.
they caught 173 fish.

Basically a number wanna-be's use nowadays to seem cool. They think that the world is run by numbers or some other delusional theory. This is how you tell who has done too much methamphetamines in life and should stick far away from these elements.

-Believe in sorcery, witchcraft, and all-around illuminati principles while not having any regard for the Word.

SCP-173 is a sculpture constructed from concrete and rebar with traces of krylon brand spray paint, the object cannot move while in a direct line of sight. If the observer looks off the object or blinks it will move a short distance towards the target, SCP-173 attacks by snapping the neck at the base of the skull or in more rare instances by strangulation. In addendum 1 it was noted that an SCP-173 multiplication event occurred producing 2 identical copies, in addendum 2 it was noted that a second multiplication event occurred, objects reclassed as Keter. And in addendum 3, 61 copies of SCP-173 which are for now unnacounted for. Nuclear bombing on ??/??/?? SCP-173 instances have been reduced.
I'm gonna blink, remember to not look away from SCP-173.
