I can see the Loc-Nar landing, taking a look around, and heading back to space, muttering, "This shiat is too evil even for ME....."

I grew up watching science fiction movies in the 60's.  The answer is always radiation.  It is the cause and/or cure to all space problems.

Because they can.
They can.
Because they can-can.

Why do humans tend to find the color green eerie?

When the cyanide and diatomic carbon molecules in the comet's coma get excited by the Sun's ultraviolet waves, the electrons enter into a higher energy state. But they can stay excited for so long before they release this energy by emitting photons that are in the visible spectrum.

I imagine it is for the same reason that hail-producing storms sometimes turn green, because of light refracting through ice.

I don't know why, but if I visit the ATM when it is happening, the ATM calls me an asshole

Well, it's so when it falls from the sky, it gets followed by meteor showers and tidal wave,
followed by faultlines that cannot sit still,
followed by millions of dumbfounded dipschitts...
