Utility keyring

I've got quite a lot of "things" of my keyring (very few of which are actual keys!) and it occurred to me that there are a few things missing, so I bought them:

That's a super powerful LED torch (much brighter than the usual LED keyring torches) which is focusable and the bottom item is a lighter! No I don't smoke and frankly I've got no idea when I'll ever use a lighter... but the ability to make fire seemed like a good idea... you know for all those times when I want to set something on fire... like... erm... never. But hey... who knows! Now I just need to get some lighter fluid to power it... :) Unfortunately this does mean that my "keyring" is now turning into more like Batman's utility belt (in keyring form) so the complete thing now looks like:

Yes I actually lug that lot round with me! Start from the top left and going round clockwise: The new LED torch, Tesco clubcard, keys for work, trolley token, 16Gb Titanium U3 flash drive, Disklok key (steering wheel lock for car), car key, emergency £20 note, Leatherman Micra multitool, a card with my name/email/phone number on it for if it's lost (but obviously not my address!), Tritium glowing light (to find keys), keys for my house and my parents house, hand clip (for whatever reason), Micro SD USB reader (with 8Gb card as well), emergency £5 of coins (5 * £1) and finally the new lighter! PHEW!

Best part is those multi-rings, because I can disconnect/reconnect any item to anywhere else on the chain i.e. for easily handing over car keys to garage or for taking less items etc. Most people just have one of those, but as you can see, I've got 3 :) The only thing I don't have is one of those capsules that opens/floats to the surface so you can retrieve your keys if you drop them in water... I should get one! :)
