"The tiger shark is like a swimming tiger. It can grow to be 10 yards long and will go after anyone or anything. It will chew up an old boot or a floating piece of wood and will (even web stay) bite off a swimmer's arm. In the shark family, the tiger shark is said to be the number two killer. The number (one way some) killer is the great white shark."
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.
