...   I will not raise my hand in class until I can tell you why people would wear goggles ...

That's easy, sir.

As I believe I may have remarked elsewhere, goggles are essential to keep the dust out of one's eyes when piloting one's airship.

Also useful in the event of spitting cobras. One can never be too careful.

..... and carrying a few spare gears is like having a safety pin somewhere - one never knows when it may come in handy.

Good point!  In a world of clockwork gadgets, important things might wear out at the wrong time.  It would be handy to have a common selection of parts and pieces within reach.

Not that I'd repair it myself you understand, it would just make things easier for my minions (never let it be said that I'm an unreasonable despot!)

You have to tread a fine line between avant-garde surrealism and getting yourself sectioned...
