a: Energy conservation ~
b: Hank Aaron
What: "Conservation (of energy) is like Hank Aaron. Sure, steady, reliable, long- term, effective - and unexciting. In a time of Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Reggie Jackson, Aaron holds the home-run record; but unlike them, he endured years of relative obscurity. It was not until he overtook Babe Ruth that most people noticed."

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.
