a: cheap gas ~
b: modern opium in long term
"That is one of advantages of getting gas by internal Russian prices, if they would have to pay market price it would be unsustainable.

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.
