adjective ag·a·tho·kak·o·log·i·cal \¦a-gə-(ˌ)thō-ˌka-kə-¦lä-ji-kəl\

Composed of both good and evil. From Ancient Greek ἀγαθός(agathós, good) and κακός(kakós, bad).

There may be an opposite fault; for indeed upon the agathokakological globe there are opposite qualities always to be found in parallel degrees, north and south of the equator.– Robert Southey, The Doctor, Etc.

    So basically next time I say I’m having a shitty day I’m not being impolite, I’m just translating from Greek.
    I love the little coincidences of language.
