"An aneurysm is like a balloon that has reached it's maximum air capacity, after a while, the pressure becomes too much and it pops."
"An aneurysm is like a blister on a blood vessel, and like a blister it can burst or pop,"

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.
