"Drinking is like borrowing happiness from the next day,"
"For some people drinking is like playing with a poisonous snake. You know it's going to bite you, you're just not sure when or how bad it'll be."
"I know, we were all hoping I wouldn't say it. I'll make this brief. Drinking alcohol is like punching your liver in its lower lobe. Sometimes a gentle 'love tap' is acceptable, playful, and even fun for both parties if it releases stress and tension."
"Drinking alcohol is like swimming through the tank of nurse sharks: It's not dangerous if it's done responsibly and cautiously"
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.
