"Homework is like an alien invader who takes away time (and serenity) from families. In fact, while in no way can parents dictate how their kids should use the time spent at school, schools are forcing families to organize their time around homework; sometimes the workload is unreasonable and often unnecessary."
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.
