a: Each genotype ~
b: a coin with 2 sides
What: "Each genotype is like a coin with 2 sides, so when Mr. and Mrs. Mouse get together to make a baby, its like flipping one coin for each of their genotypes. Mr. Mouse's coin might come up normal or vampire. Mrs. Mouse's coin might come up normal or vampire. If one or either or both are normal, so is the kid. But if both come up vampire, then that kid is ... vampiric."

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.
