E Tu Linus?
a: Linus pauling ~
b: The Marlin Brando of Chemistry
What: Linus Pauling applied quantum mechanics to explain the molecular orbitals of organic molecules and thus how they bond with other molecules. This is a fundamental explanation of carbon bonding. Hybridization theory, as it is known, is taught in every organic chemistry class in the world.
Marlin Brando defined and perfected method acting and ultimately what became the standard to all actors. Their similarity is the large influence they have both had on their disparate fields. Many scientists hold Pauling's work in high esteem and many actors hold the work of Brando in high esteem.

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.
