The head is a drag when it tries to divide Evil and Good in two seperate sides. It's a pleasure to put it another way: Good things hurt for the one who can't pay.
Snake gall wine and death of a rabbit - Evil does good for the one who affords it. Pleasure is, until you loose your mood, Good as gold, and better than food.
