Why do people choose to live close to major fault lines?


I was just watching the news about the 8.9 magnitude quake in Japan. and a newscaster in CA was mentioning how the San Andreas fault line could produce such a quake at any given moment. Why would people make residence around such a terrible potential disaster?
