"Drunk driving is like masterbating: 90% of of the people have done it and the other 10% lied. Some guys need to remember that when they are dropping the hammer on someone for a traffic offense."
"Drunk driving is like the mosquitoes or deer on the animal side of the analogy - they are actually, statistically deadly. Unlike the animal simile, we can actually do something about this danger, we can avoid it."
"Drunk driving is like firing a gun at a moving train and hoping that you don't any of the passengers. "
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.
