To make a difference, we could always make the stuff 106 leaves behind harmful to the player, as it still contains some of the corrosive powers. I've actually always expected that to happen, and been jumping over or at least evading those dark spots and cracks he left behind. We got med kits now anyway.
Yeah that would be a good addition to the game, but medkits... are useful for an unknown corrosive substance?
Of course, do you not know how medkits work?

You just take it, rub it on your chest, and you are healed of all injuries.

It's science.

Really, comes down to how it would work in-game rather than how much sense it makes.
Not EVERYTHING needs logic, per say.

perhaps if he get's you in a stranglehold, you could have the chance to break free by repeadedly blinking and pressing your move buttons, that would be a neat thing to me.

That probably wouldn't break you free, that would just bring him to option 2: Snap your neck

Not if he wanted to kill you slowly, it could create a very tease moment for the player.

I really felt creeped out when I read an expanded article that details when 173 undergoes binary fission and spreads across the world, and the foundation relocates the entire human race under the sea, WHILE nuking the earth into all hell, WHILE making two entire continents containment zones.

Maybe not... THAT bad, but perhaps it could occasionally split in half, thus doubling its spawn rate, and the original spawn rate would be low. Then those to would split in half, quadrupling it, then something with six it, and so on. Soon multiple rooms would have eight or 9 173's in it at once, with every room having at least 3. If you didn't get out soon enough, there could be a new ending where 173 rips apart the facility and you along with it.

That article is not exactly canon, since the author of the article and the original 173 article arent the same. Also if we used every alternate apocaliptic scenario that appears on the wiki, we would need hundreds of endings.

There is no canon, but point understood. Too confusing.

Also very frustration if you need to survive as long as possible ... Not to mention completely impossible. You go in a room, see two 173s in front of you, and hear four 173s snap your neck behind you. Plus, way too variable, as you have absolutely no control over his duplication.
Also, only cells duplicate that way. Something made of concrete and rebar can't really do any binary fission. But that's just me and my biology in reality.
