WHAT GIVES: I live in an exceedingly pious neighborhood with mezzuzot on every door post, and woman who wear bulletproof stockings with seams on every street corner.

Cholent is available 24/7. You need to wear a hat and a gartel to take the amud in most shuls. Our local schools for boys are open 6 days per week, and would never, chas v'sholom, close on a national holiday, chas v'sholom.

So why does every third house have an illegal apartment of some kind?
