"A good recipe is like a play, if one actor doesn't know his part you can't rescue it by having one someone who has learned a different role."
"Hawaiian rolls are a minor variation from a Portuguese recipe. I suspect pandesal has a similar origin. A good recipe is like a virus, it'll infect everyone it can."
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.
