Janny got a kick out of my playing URINATOR today.   We both did when she looked up a definition.  On top of the obvious one, it also refers or at least used to refer to a diver, specifically for pearls most often.
Turns out it is from ancient Rome.  Urina is Latin for "urine" and "dive" is urinare.  Hence the confusing faux cognate.

Just one tiny correction. Andy played RETINOL against me, not RETINAL, and I played SOLIDER, not SOLDIER.
