Feeling Equanimous? You're Unbepissed Off

Ammon Shea's book, Reading the OED, relates the author's spine-tingling adventures perusing the 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary in one year. (That's millions of words, words, words.)

Shea's etymological musings will improve anyone's vocabulary. For example, now I know that "unbepissed," means "not urinated upon."
