From a totally different perspective....

Birds are colorful to embrace risk. Predators can see them better when they stand out from the foliage. The lady birds look over at the brightly colored male birds and thinks "Wow, that guy is so obnoxiously bright and the predators *still* can't catch him. He must have great genes... You! Toucan! Come have my babies!!"

Humans are the same way. If a man goes to a cubicle and survives, meh. Meanwhile, if a man orbits the Earth and comes back....
