WIKI:
A simile is a figure of speech comparing two unlike things, often introduced with the word "like" or "as".[1] Even though similes and metaphors are both forms of comparison, similes allow the two ideas to remain distinct in spite of their similarities, whereas metaphors compare two things without using "like" or "as". For instance, a simile that compares a person with a bullet would go as follows: "John was a record-setting runner and as fast as a speeding bullet." A metaphor might read something like, "John was a record-setting runner. That speeding bullet could zip past you without you even knowing he was there."

Life is like butt-âucking. Fist of all, you've heard it's so great, and it seems to be the top thing to shoot videos of, so right away you're going in with these expectations. And it's a little exciting at first. There's the challenge, it's hard to get things started, you really have to apply yourself. And it feels pretty awesome right at first, and you're excited because you're doing it! But then, it's pretty hard to maintain any kind of friction, and you end up just mucking around without getting much out of it. Pretty soon you wish you could just get things over with, but you don't really want to "go" anywhere else, since you're not exactly clean anymore. So there you are, doing this supposedly awesome thing and you're like, wondering what the big deal is. That's why life is like butt-âucking.

Life is like a blow job. You know it's gonna suck but it's better than nothing.

By the time you decide you have a special enough occasion, they are rancid and dangerous.

Life is like reading one of S.G.s posts.

Sometimes you're not sure what to expect but then pleasantly suprised you smile.
