"An affectation is like a guy from Jersey speaking with a british accent; it is the act of taking on a behavior that one does not naturally take or believe in genuinely."
"Affectation is like mildew on a peach - it robs it of all its beauty. " Affectation is a greater enemy to the face than smallpox."
"affectation is like the wind, it's there. then it's not, then suddenly... it's there again! and then everyones like oh which way is the wind blowing?"
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.
