It means experiencing extreme joy. "Beside" was formerly (15th through 19th centuries) used in phrases to mean "out of a mental state or condition, as 'beside one's patience, one's gravity, one's wits'" (Oxford Engl. Dict.), and that use survives only in "'beside oneself': out of one's wits, out of one's senses."

"Beside himself. Why do we describe a distraught person as being 'beside himself'? Because the ancients believed that soul and body could part and that under great emotional stress the soul would actually leave the body. When this happened a person was 'beside himself.' This same thought is to be found in 'out of his mind'; and in 'estasy' too. 'Ecstasy' is from the Greek and literally means 'to stand out of.'" From "Dictionary of Word Origins" by Jordan Almond (Carol Publishing Group, Secaucus, N.J., 1998).

You can go to a Janitors supplier store to look for Hand Dryers, or you can go to Home Depot to buy it. Some stores that specialized in electrical appliances might sell them, such as BestBuy. You can go online to buy a hand dryer as well. For you convenience, I have listed a website for you to get more details. http://www.restroomdirect.com. Furthermore, Amazon also sell those products.
