    If you weren't so triggered you might have realised. Still, you never were very bright.

    Since you like spouting definitions.

    Simile and Metaphor—What’s the Difference?

    While both similes and metaphors are used to make comparisons, the difference between similes and metaphors comes down to a word. Similes use the words like or as to compare things—“Life is like a box of chocolates.” In contrast, metaphors directly state a comparison—“Love is a battlefield.”

    Here are some examples of similes and metaphors:

    Life is like a box of chocolates. (Simile) My life is an open book. (Metaphor) That baby is as cute as a button!(Simile) Baby, you’re a firework.(Metaphor)

    So. No you didn't.

    You really can't take it when you're proven wrong, can you? Which given how often that is on here, you'd think you'd be used to it by now

    Why not just accept it fella, you're nowhere near as smart as you think you are.
