"The collarbone, or clavicle, is one of the most vulnerable bones in the body. If the shoulder joint is like a tripod, the clavicle is one of the tripod's legs. Any trauma to the shoulder, and especially falls that place a large force on it, put the clavicle at risk for fracturing."
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.
