Wild Card's description 
Low probability events often appear to be extremely likely, because they keep happening. So, for example, a large part of the Arctic ice breaks off and sea levels rise, maybe there is a drought and a severe heatwave that jeopardises food supply in Europe, or some combination of those things. Then it is wild not because we did not think of it, but because it is contributing to a situation which is already under stress. The world may be in a bad way politically, economically and socially, etc.
