Seeing A Damned River Is Like
a: Seeing a damned river ~
b: seeing a tiger locked in a small cage
What: "For me, seeing one of the world's greatest rivers separated by 3.4 million cubic meters of concrete and rebar is like being an animal lover and seeing a tiger locked in a small cage with a chain around its neck. Perhaps I am being a bit dramatic but you get my point - I am not a fan of dams."

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.
