"College cost is like health care cost. Usually somebody else is paying for it. There is less scrutiny on the nickels and dimes that add up to thousands of dollars. The other aspect of an all-inclusive tuition/travel/lodging/touring package is that you are not allowed to analyze any of the component costs because they are not broken down into understandable elements."
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.
