    I'm not saying that similies can't be hyperboles. I'm merely being more specific in terms of figurative language. It's really the difference between saying 'car' or '2011 Honda Accord': same idea, but the latter is a more specific definition.

    Honestly, I was just breaking balls. The direction that these YMAS conversations go are bizzare, but it keeps me coming back like the herps.

    I have many beers to drink, so godspeed gentlemen. I'm going to drink like a fish.

    You can beat his body but never his ego.

    And Scorpion vs. Subzero would be awesome and a certain youtube hit.

    Whilst doesn't fix it. 'Whilst' is what you say if you're from the UK or a pompous cockface. The word is 'while'.

    Being a simile doesn't mean it isn't a hyperbole, dumbass.
