"Australia has fallen on its feet in the financial sense but human rights are not even on the table here, homo's and boat-people are like the sand flies that annoy you at the beach as you luxuriate in the plenty of this island."
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.
