b: building a musical instrament
What: "Remember that what you are building is like a giant musical instrument. To get a nice sound, the size of the mouthpiece has to be matched to the size and length of the pipes. That ricey sound comes from using a trumpet mouthpiece with baritone pipes. Supra is more of a trombone sized mouthpiece and needs more medium sized piping. Turbo cars can get away with 3" pipes because the turbo is a sort of like blowing through a reed (turbine), effectively turning brass into a giant woodwind instrument, like mabe a contrabass or something (almost worth it for the sound quality alone). The muffler is like a mute stuck in the end of the horn."

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.
