Nah, I was wrong but was corrected by Luckduck the All Knowing. Like:

God Lord Kalthorn is a Tiger in Bed is a Similie

God Lord Kalthorn is like a Tiger in Bed is a Metaphor :P

So the over the top thing is a Similie, and the representation of the thing but not actually saying it is something is a Metaphor

actually the second one is a simile too!!!!

similies use like or as to refer to another thing being similar!

metaphor is giving a non-human object human-like qualities or something like that.

Luckyduck said I had it the wrong way round - and I'm enclined to believe her because you seem to be saying both are Similies

So "The computer screen was staring at me" is a Metaphor?

okay...

God Lord Kalthorn is a Tiger in Bed is a Metaphore

God Lord Kalthorn is like a Tiger in Bed is a Similie

similies use like or as and metaphores say one thing IS something else

"The computer screen was staring at me"<<is an example of personification. which is giving human like qualities to something that isnt human..some ppl debate that you can give humanlike qualities to animals though...

damn florida public schools

Well I'm out of school and there it is - me needing to know that very stuff! So obviously you do need it out of school.
