Your upstairs neighbors made a video of how they torture you with noise

Take heart: Your loud upstairs neighbors aren't, in fact, oblivious to your comfort and very existence. They're actually super aware of you, and go above and beyond every single day to keep their noise at the high levels to which you've become accustomed. They're not just making noise haphazardly, they're curating the sounds you're hearing. They've even given up their quiet, happy sex life in lieu of loud, screaming, simulated sex, all for your benefit! Think about that next time you act like you're the only one in the building who has it rough. (Hat tip to Gothamist and Reddit for the video.)
