Default Mischief VS Evil

There's been much argument over what pranks are mischief and what pranks are evil. Here's an example comparison.

This is where to tell how you draw the line between what's funny, and what's just wrong. Make your opinion known!

From an objective point of view:

Mischief: Pranks, comedy, and other impish behavior used mainly to tease, but not to hurt. The main goal of mischief is purely to make someone else feel silly, embarrassed, or get them a little aggravated in ways that others could consider comical. However, the one causing mischief never intends to do physical harm or cause great pain and suffering to the victim.

Evil: Doing something intended to bring harm, whatever it be physical or mental, to someone else for self gain or for sadistic entertainment. Here, the one creating evil does not care whether the victim gets hurt, or the intention could be to hurt them as much as possible, even to the point of death.

The main objective of mischief: get attention

The main objective of evil: inflict harm

This is the most accurate definition and I don't really see the point of this thread.

There is no line, everything is funny. Evil is only a point of view people give things when they don't understand it.

Pwned. Is there even such a thing as an uberfail stamp? And how much extra damage does it do if the enemy is using Minimize? XD

The line is drawn in my eyes when someone gets hurt, physically or mentally.

Evil is more of doing something seriously and to seriously harm/ offend others. Mischief is usually for fun or for laughs :P

Actually, I would say yes, because I'm feeling particularly insane at the moment.
