a: 2009 economy ~
b: Mars Rover stuck in the Sand
What: "The Rover is a sophisticated piece of machinery that was sent to a far off world. It was roaming around looking to see what was there. It was so distant that it's its controllers could not see where it was going and thus it's trapped. It will take time and some subtle effort to get it unstuck and then moving in the right direction; Like the US economy and Civil Society."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy
and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search.
The subject matter can be anything.
Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged.
The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with
the stark literalism of a relational database.
Metamia is like a girdle for your muses,
a cognitive girdle.
