actually does, just gotta use context :P

"I'm so pissed at you right now" - Angry

"I got so pissed last night" - probably drunk

then again maybe its only certain areas that still use it as angry.

We use both, but that's because in our lexicon of slang we've bastardized both American and English

I also don't see how it's so hard to understand english slang. It's not that hard to follow really. Maybe some of the cockney rhyming slang, I can understand how people would struggle with that. But I mean really if you're getting called a muppet or a pillock just assume it's bad.

lol that actually reminds me of that bit in BoB where the pom goes

"If you 'fink you're 'alf inchin' that you must be 'avin a bath!"

and the yank is like huh?

Cause we throw bombs on it, throw bombs on it. Just smash something, yeah mosh for me.
