acid rain


The Forrest Must Taste Like A Big Salad....

a: Acid rain ~
b: vinegar from the sky

What: "Acid rain is caused by the sulfur present in coal. When coal is burned to generate electricity, the sulfur is changed into a gas that will dissolve in water and fall to ground as rain or snow. The acid formed in acid rain is like that in lemon juice or vinegar. Acid rain can damage buildings and statues made of stone, trees, and food crops."

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.
