The Mathematics of Our New Downstairs Neighbors

Three small and excitable children = Honest and forgivable noise

A set of big home-theater speakers blasting "Deep Note," the THX logo theme, with enough bass to rattle our bedroom (and our bed) like the magnitude 5.5 Chino Hills earthquake, at 6:58 AM on the one day this month I could actually sleep in = Angry upstairs neighbors quickly knocking on their front door (and a downstairs neighbor who apparently couldn't find his pants)
