Paranoia Ideas

I need some ideas for building materials that Secret Societies might make available for a competitive "building" project. Some of it should be useful, and the rest surplus of questionable use.
What I have so far:
Box of 10,000 Roses
Box of 10,000 Baloons
Box of 1,000 Ball Bearings
Metal tubing
Sequin Sheeting
4 2-gallon jugs of Glitter
Can of Metal Sealant
24 thin plastiwood bars (1/4 in by 2 inch, 12 feet long)
Blowtorch
Box of towels
100 LED Lights
Shoe Box filled with Shoestrings

I'm trying to get a list of 20-25 things. Help me give some tools to tormented Troubleshooters tasked with creating a "Loyalty Day" event in Alpha Complex. Kneeling is Treason. Clapping is Mandatory.

Multiple cans of paint. Green, blue, indigo, and violet paint.

Cans of higher level paints are a fun but dangerous idea. Sneaky bastards can put them to nefarious use too easily.

"Friend Computer, it was not my fault the cone rifle misfired and spattered that paint all over the corridor/troubleshooter/bot/bystander. But I was responsible for terminating the offender with the resulting security clearance issue."

Loyal and Traitor buttons in assorted colors.
Multiple cans of paint. Green, blue, indigo, and violet paint.

The complete Flags of different Complexes collection.
Tapes on Book
A box wrench and screws set with two adjustable ratchet
Rainbow streamers

One commemorative genuine simulated clone vat.

Nice... but that might give them the wrong ideas.

Make sure all items are appropriately colored to security level.

Wouldn't want any troubleshooters to get in trouble for having them.

Thanks, this is helpful. Hope to be able to put together an AAR after Origins next week.

I'm hoping that the Troubleshooters get into big, big trouble so they don't notice that I've ripped off the headlines, jumbled them together and given the pieces back to the players to put together. Or more likely blow up. That would be fun. Fun is mandatory.

I still highly recommend that you rethink Friday night's Strip RPG session.

Hepcat is jealous of Kobolds Ate my Baby. It's like Paranoia except with King Torg (ALL HAIL KING TORG!) and enforced stupidity by being Kobolds.

Your coming this year, right? It is so not my scene, but to watch Zarathud light up as a room shouts incredibly silly things, it is all worth it...

I think I played two years ago? Or was it three? I can't remember, but I will play in this again this year. :) It's a blast, and totally worth the price of admission, okay Zarathud let's me in for Free, but you know, still worth it.

Last year I bled for the kobold cause. Then the table before ours had their tale told by a 10 year old girl. Who crushed it.

Our Speaker for the Dead Kobolds was so nervous that he flubbed a reference to King Torg (ALL HAIL KING TORG!) so we were immediately eaten and disqualified. Partly because there was no way that we could compete. It was awesome.

Hint for RMC for Paranoia -- Animal House. Ramming Speed!

Something funny about so many bots finding this thread so appealing.

Bots would of course want to be involved in any conversation about the world being run by a computer.

hmm, I wonder, would a paranoi game be improved if everything the troubleshooters asked was answered by Cleverbot?
