You don't need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

somewhere to work where the wife cant nag and annoy you whilst working seems pretty close to the top of the list for me.

I carry a old toothbrush in my toolkit on all my bikes - The uses have been endless:

Bristles used for unblocking jets
The shaft can be shaped/cut/snapped to perform a multitude of tasks.
A harmless chock, lever, used to protect in conjunction with hammer.
Jams in the brake/clutch lever to hold it on.
A non conducting spare finger for where I cant reach or dont want to.
It can be dipped into the fuel or oil tank to get a drop of whats in there for cleaning or lubricating.
Non damaging as a wedge and very effective for jamming srockets ect
Popped under the side or mainstand on rough/sloping ground
Not to mention cleaning things such as threads/seals/glands/allen heads.....
