comment “Positive” synonyms for 'problem' or 'worst'

comment What do you call an event that happens without a cause?
I remember spontaneous in chemistry as meaning the reaction would just happen when the two reactants came in contact. A non-spontaneous reaction would require an ignition or heat input. Baking soda and vinegar react spontaneously. A match igniting requires a trigger.
