Any of these three would pretty much ruin my week/month/year.  Take your pick.

Huh.  Since this is the Internet, I thought for sure this was going to be between clowns, spiders and clown spiders.


BRUTAL.

Can't say I worry about any of those....but I do worry about a catastrophic health issue as I get older.

This. I worry about health more than anything else, I guess.

I have more mild concerns about situations like Ukraine, because one of these days it will be a situation like that where a 'miscalculation' will occur and there will be a disaster affecting all of us, in a way that any post war generation wouldn't understand.

The stupidity of people with their hands on the buttons worry me more than any of these. Let's face it, none of the listed scenarios are something we can do anything about. If I were a religious man, I'd probably just say that it was our time to go.
In the greater scheme of things, then they're actually all events that continuously change the surface of our planet, for better or worse.

No need for cataclysmic events to remind me of my vulnerability...

LOL

Seriously, none of the three poll choices
Still, a few years ago I was in Germany in the Eifel mountains, where's there are many dead and sleeping volcanoes. The ground rises each year a few millimeters, there are a few geysirs  which we visited, and you see the traces of volcanism everywhere, and there's a super volcano (Maria Laach) which is said to have stones being erupted as far as Sweden and Italy long ago. 
If the Maria Laach volcano erupts, all of Belgium and the southern half of the Netherlands could be covered under a layer of ashes.

During these holidays, my wife and I saw the film 2012, about the eruption of the Yellowstone caldera, which is supposed to be the biggest supervolcano ever.
I must say, the combination was pretty wild, the movie and being in an actual supervolcano area.

Still, chances of a super volcano erupting during our lifetime is pretty low.

I'm reminded of Communion, a film from 1989 where Christopher Walken plays a science-fiction author who meets real extraterrestrials. I gotta wonder who'd be most afraid of the other side in that encounter: The aliens or Christopher Walken?
