"Chocolate kiss – a steep pointed stratovolcano is like a chocolate kiss. A white and dark chocolate swirl can illustrate lava flows along the flanks or varying lava."
"Generally, the stratovolcano is like opening a bottle of soda, where a shield volcanoe is like opening a bottle of water."
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.
