"Life is like..."
Alright, somewhere in the Emporor Thread, somebody mentions a friend they once had who could metaphorically relate absolutely any object to life.
The example he used was, "Life is like a cigarrette. You inhale, you exhale. A momentary passing pleasure, but all the while, it's slowly killing you."
Welll, I don't know whether or not this is already a thred, but...
"Life is like a doorknob. Grab hold of it, and it'll turn for you...but just before it comes full circle, it stops and opens the door to someplace new."
Someone else do "life is like a dictionary..."
