"Your cuticle is like a delicate flower-it's like a virgin on prom night, so you want to be gentle,"
"your nail cuticle is like the root of a flower, damage the root, you damage the flower"
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.
