Infinigrad Suburb Danger Generator

Being a continuation of the Infinigrad Suburb Details Generator, here are 10'000 possible horrible things to make suburbs worse. They would no doubt work in other places too! 

The "Suburb Danger Generator" is composed of 2 tables; “The Dangerous Thing” table and “What the Thing does” table.

The Dangerous Thing:  Each entry has two options. Either pick one or use both, or roll again for 3 or 4 options. Combine them all together to get some sort of monstrosity - use one to keep things mundane.

What the Thing Does: In what way is the dangerous thing dangerous? How does it attempt to ruin your day?

Combine both tables to get a danger.
