Glucose Cluster Bomb
a: High Glycemic Index Food ~
b: Glucose Cluster Bomb
What: High glycemic foods rapidly generate a large quantity of glucose when they are ingested. I don't want to push the association between food and munitions too far, but all that glucose exploding into a body is not good for long term health. Real cluster bombs do their work more explicitly and without a lot more obvious damage. The unifying element is that both entities covert from a solid whole into many at a very rapid rate. The link provides a nice (?) visual.

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.
