That's not evil, that's just human nature....wait, that probably didn't come off right.
It sounds similar to George Carlin, you should see some of his comedy, he has a lot of jokes about enjoying natural disasters and that kind of thing.
But in order to answer the question, what is evil? Hard to say, there's more to being a good person than being a "good person".
"I think it's certainly apparent by now that one of the things I enjoy in life is excess... I like things that are excessive. I like excessive
behavior, excessive language, excessive violence... it's fun. It's interesting. It's exciting. I like it when nature is excessive. That's why I
like natural disasters. All these natural disasters that've been going on, I f'ing love 'em. I can't get enough of them. Ah, when nature's going
crazy, throwing things around, scaring people and destroying property, I'm a happy f'ing guy. I'm a happy f'ing guy. I look at it this way... For
centuries now, man has done everything he can to destroy, defile, and interfere with nature: clear-cutting forests, strip-mining mountains, poisoning
the atmosphere, over-fishing the oceans, polluting the rivers and lakes, destroying wetlands and aquifers... so when nature strikes back, and smacks
me in the head and kicks me in the nuts, I enjoy that. I have absolutely no sympathy for human beings whatsoever. None. And no matter what kind of
problem humans are facing, whether it's natural or man-made, I always hope it gets worse. Don't you? Don't you? Don't you have a part of you, a
part of you that secretly hopes everything gets worse? When you see a big fire on TV... don't you hope it spreads? Don't you hope it gets completely
out of control and burns down six counties? You don't root for the firemen do you? I mean I don't want them to get hurt or nothing, but I don't
want them to put out my fire. That's my fire - that's nature showing off and having fun. I like fires. You know something else I like? Those spring
floods in the Midwest! Aren't they great? Like clockwork, spring floods in the Midwest. Now I'm starting to notice... I'm starting to catch on,
that every year... it's the same story. Another flood, in the same place, with the same people, on the same river- SAME f'ing PEOPLE! And these
people do not move, they will not #ing move! They repaint, put down new carpeting and wallpaper and they move right back into the same #ing house on
the flood plain, next to the river, and then they wonder why grandma's floating downstream with the parakeet on her head! Fourth time, again, fourth
#ing time. There's no learning curve with these people. It's very hard to feel sorry for them. Every year - same people, same rowboats! Out there
paddling around... rescuing a chicken. What the # kind of a life is that? "Well our kids love it here...? Oh really, what do they got, gills? And
while they're showing all that action on the screen, the announcer's saying to me "It's been raining steadily for three months now, the ground
can't any more water... The river is cresting higher than it has it two centuries, the levees have washed away...? And I just hope it keeps raining
and raining and raining and raining and raining and raining and raining and raining and raining and raining and raining and raining and raining, and
it rains steadily for five years... and then after that, for ten years it's cloudy. With occasional showers. And the river never returns to its
natural banks! It becomes a completely new river, and the borders of three states have to be changed, and all the maps and atlases have to be redrawn
and reprinted... and no one's couch ever completely dries out. For years and years, every time they sit down there's always that little "Squish...?
"Dan, Linda, come on in you guys, have a seat" - "Squish!" "Squish!" I like that. I'm an interesting guy. "
Good 'ol George Carlin.
