a: Ethanol fuel ~
b: going through your ass to get to your elbow
What: A comment on how inefficient bio based ethanol actually is. There is actually a loss of energy when producing ethanol by fermenting corn. This is 1 of the reasons why food prices have climbed so much in the last year or two.

Bio Ethanol As Laetrile For Cars
a: Bio ethanol fuel ~
b: laetrile for cars
What: "Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) gave a disoriented "Apollo project" speech about ethanol and "flex-fuels" at the Detroit Economic Club May 1. Proposing an Apollo Project for ethanol fuel, is like proposing an Apollo Project for laetrile as a cancer treatment; ethanol might as well be laetrile for cars."

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.
