For the most part I keep my myself, however I find that when people do not celebrate the harvest moon festival with a goat sacrifice at midnight to gregorian chants, I need to intervene. Nonetheless, as the saying holds true: you do you boo.

Listen you *******, this whole "if it's not hurting you then it doesn't concern you" is how we ended up with stanced cars and stretched tires. Sometimes you gotta tell the guy next door he's being an *******.

Stanced cars inherently reduce the number of describable/unmodified secondhand cars on the market, therefore driving the value up on your respective vehicle. Isn't that a win-win tho?

Well put.

What about if you hear your neighbor assaulting their spouse?

ive never had to deal with that. I'd subtly try to make sure the person knew I heard it happening (wash mybike or car in the front yard and ask them how they are doing if they came out). If they knew I heard and didn't cut it out, I'd probably call the cops then. I don't think Ive ever called the cops before, but I wouldn't want to get involved. I'd probably end up going to jail like Brother Ali in his song Dorian. Lol

If it was domestic abuse, I'd want to knock on the door and act like a crazy person and tell them if I hear that **** again I'm gonna bust the door down and rape the both of them.

But I probably wouldn't do anything. You know what they say, it's easier to do nothing than to do something.
