"Turkey is currently the left testicle of NATO which is playing host to a massive malignant tumor. Sure, you want to keep your left testicle, but when it becomes so much of a problem that you'd be better off without it (buying oil from ISIS and supporting them covertly, among many other problem) then it is time to cut it off."
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.
