your metabolism


a: Your metabolism ~
b: your FICO credit score

What: "Your metabolism is like your FICO credit score. For instance, if your FICO score is high, you get a better rate on a loan, and if your FICO score is low, then your rate on a loan stinks, or you may be denied the loan altogether. If your metabolism is fast, then burning excess fat happens easy and automatically. If you metabolism is slow, then no matter how good you are, burning fat is really difficult to do."

a: Your metabolism ~
b: Pachinko pinball machine

What: "The researchers used the way Japanese Pachinko machines operate as a model to explain the interactions of our genes with drugs, the environment and microbial metabolism. Their theory states that metabolic interactions are often highly probabilistic and the flows of molecules through the machine are dependent on combinations of genetic variations with factors such as diet and the composition of the gut microflora."

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.
