"Penn basketball is like a bad significant other. You take them out to dinner at a fancy Italian place and at the very least expect them to show up and act presentable the entire time."
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.
