"The skeletal system is like a big clothes hanger that gives the body shape and holds everything in place."
"High-heels top the list of most chiropractor's "Don'ts!" Your skeletal system is like a mobile hanging in equilibrium. Wearing heels unnaturally forces the normal curve of the back, and causes the pelvis to tip forward. The whole system tries to compensate for this change, and the result is sore muscles and misalignment."
The skeletal system is very important. This system is responsible for protecting the inner body. The skeletal system is like a metal shield covering the body. This system helps the respiratory system by protecting the lungs."
"The fourth and fifth jobs of the skeletal system are just as important as the first three previously mentioned, but are considered to be minor functions. Think about coffee many people drink this, you might also. Non dairy creamer (powdered creamer) can be made in factories
and then shipped and used by people all around the world. The creamer is put into the coffee and then enjoyed. Your skeletal system is like the factory that makes the creamer. The fourth job of the body is: to make blood cells. These blood cells have many important jobs to do, and you will review these in the circulatory system. Blood cells are made in the long bones such as the arm and leg bones."
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.
