I knew when I started this that it would be impossible to address every
single possible hazard that may exist in the world.  I tried to curate a
list of the most popular hazards that people were actually actually tagging
with the 28,000 existing usages of the hazard key, and that I felt I was
able to adequately understand, describe, and provide examples for.
However, if people believe I'm missing something, I would be more than
happy to add to the list!
