No

This would be considered a metaphor relating chains to conformity.

how is this quote a hyperbole

"living here is land of sheer boredom can make a notmally sane person want to rip off her cloths and leap to her death from the top of a grain elevator"

Answer

Well, just because you're bored doesn't mean you have to rip your clothes off and leap to your death from the top of a grain elevator. You would simply search for an activity.

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/24/2015 - 01:23
That is actually a simile.

That is actually a simile. I'm so fat a pig weighs more than me is a hyperbole. Saying the words "like a" makes it a simile.

Is this a hyperbole?

A shallow heart?

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 03/09/2015 - 15:14
Paradox

This is a paradox because your heart isn't shallow, as it has many chambers, but it could be shallow too because it implies that you aren't kind-hearted.

Answer

No it's not. try to think about exaggerations and comparisons. For example:
-I'm so hungry I could eat a whole horse
-He's so smart he could solve any calculus question with a flick of a finger

Much of this is also used to express frustration, and is common in our colloquial speech.
