Bogart As Hemingway
a: Humphrey bogart ~
b: Ernest Hemingway
What: "Both men came from well to do families; both had physician fathers who met bad ends-Clarence Hemingway committed suicide, Belmont Bogart destroyed himself with morphine addiction-and mothers who chose artistic vocations.....Both were political liberals, both men had four wives, both were overfond of alcohol, both were notorious for riding friends and foes alike...Either man could spot a phone through lead walls"

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.
