** It doesn't even have to be a supervolcano. Just look at how much the ''ordinary'' volcano eruption in Iceland in 2013 disrupted air travel and the like, or that if Mount Rainier or the Long Valley Caldera goes off there will be everything from a pyroclastic flow and lahar flowing through populated areas in Washington State with Rainier, or LosAngeles getting pelted with volcanic debris if a point far enough south in the Long Valley explodes.

* If the government decides it wants to frame you for a crime, it has the resources to do that. And you're very unlikely to prove your innocence, because they control any law enforcement agencies that could investigate it.

* Imagine that there was an event in the past that traumatized you really badly and has haunted you ever since. Now think of anything that started to happen some time afterwards, specifically habits or other ticks that began to occur almost automatically. There's a high chance that you now may be suffering from Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of that specific event, and it may be years until you realize it or until a therapist officially diagnoses you with
it.

* The selective service. Yeah, its probably never going to be put to use again, but just imagine if it DID. You're having a great day and everything seems to be going spectacular for you, your life couldn't be better. Then you open up the mail box and find a letter from the U.S. army...

* Thrill killers. You don't even have to piss someone off for them to kill you. Thrill killers set out to murder people for the adrenaline rush and [[TheyJustDidntCare they don't even care]] who their victim is. They are also the hardest kind of serial/mass murderer to profile and catch, because they frequently do not follow any specific rules modus operandi, killing anyone of any age, race, nationality or orientation purely for the hell of it. They also tend to not have any specific "hunting ground", some having murdered people across multiple states/provinces or even countries.

** Even other countries weren't safe. Leon Trotsky moved from Russia to France to Norway to Mexico, and all the time his family and friends were being tracked down and killed, with Trotsky himself being assassinated in 1940. Ukraine, meanwhile, saw 8 million people starving to death within a year just because Stalin thought that the people there would rise up against him. And from April to May 1940, Polish officers, policemen and civilians were massacred at Katyn just because Stalin and his associates thought they would cause trouble later on.

* Paranoids themselves. Perhaps the ultimate example would be JosephStalin. Most people say that he would have actually been a good, if ruthless ruler were it would not be for the fact that he was so paranoid. He always thought that someone was conspiring against him and saw this in the vaguest of hints (for instance, people applauding for a shorter time than he liked, or briefly looking at his shoes or not smiling when he passed them in a corridor). Later on, he would kill nearly all his friends because he saw somehow that they were against his dictatorship and would go on to authorize the torture and shooting of millions of Russians for 2 years because he saw spies everywhere.

** At least in the case of an asteroid or comet, there's a chance--however slim--that you could stop it. If a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamma-ray_burst gamma-ray burst]] or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Near-Earth_supernova supernova]] occurred near Earth, there would be nothing anyone could do about it. In the case of the later, it's one of the theories behind [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ordovician%E2%80%93Silurian_extinction_events the second largest mass extinction on the planet.]]
