"I am afraid you are their wet dream: a girl who can understand what they're talking about, and doesn't look down on them merely for being geeky. Being a science geek is like living in a cage without bars, a cage that separates you from the opposite sex. You've gone into the cage and you're waving raw steaks in front of starving lions."
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.
