I've been recently reading the "Homes & Land" edition for Malibu Beach/Beverly Hills just for the amusement value (I like astronomic numbers). Some of the waterfront property depicted is just so *obviously* begging for trouble, especially in such fault-infested areas as L.A. county I wonder it is so sought-after.

I don't think that too many of these folks who have opted for dramatic views really realize how dramatic this views can get when even a modest tsunami is heading your way. I think I would get very twitchy in one of these houses if I actually had to live there.

But those Californians are all crazy, anyway.
