"Soccer is like a war where two countries are fighting each other, yet neither of them has enough ammunition to actually do any damage."
'Soccer is like an old school Pentecostal service: way too long, I don't always understand what's going on, and people keep falling down.'
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.
