More facts! Very roughly - the Old Germanic word 'hoenig' probably came from a Proto-Indo-European word that also meant yellow, and has cousins in Welsh ('canecon', gold) and Sanskrit (can't remember). The word 'mead', the drink made from honey, comes from the Proto-Indo-European *medhu. Honey is miel in French, mil in Irish, mel in Welsh, similar in many others. Languages are so cool.

Not strictly true. It depends on how often one urinates as opposed to fluid intake. the less you urinate, the more concentrated it becomes.

I was going to say that ! English is a Germanic language, not a Latin one, in a language that has Latin roots, for example French, we say "miel", which comes from "Mel" in Latin, which itself originated from the common indo-European and Ancient Greek
