  • I'm an idiot

    Well, I feel like a fool for posting this, but can anyone give me the definitive pronunciation of "MiceAge"?

    I've always wanted to pronounce it like "mileage", but the capital "A" makes me wonder if they don't mean the word "Age" to be pronounced as such.

    :c???:

      I think they should add it to the FAQ somewhere. Oh, the angst!

        Seeing as its a pun on the term Ice Age, I would figure it should be pronouced as such.

          I agree with Club 33 & Figment.

          By the way, I have heard this question asked before, so don't feel like an idiot!!

            It is a play on Ice Age.

              Well, I'm sort of living up to my thread's title. I completely missed the "ice age" inference. Thanks for setting me straight!

                I never made the Ice Age reference, but I always called it Mice Age, but now I get it.
                What an idiot....

                Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

                    I never got the Ice Age thing either, but I've always said Mice Age in my head. I'm trying to say Mice Edge, but it's just not working. Now I've got a headache... :bang:

                      But why is it a play on Ice Age?
                      Good morning, son
                      In twenty years from now
                      Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                      And I can tell you 'bout today
                      And how I picked you up and everything changed
                      It was pain
                      Sunny days and rain
                      I knew you'd feel the same things...

                        Mice Age

                        Does that help?

                          I think NeverNeverland is asking what the concept of a cold period of earth's history has to do with a web site devoted to Disney culture. There isn't a connection, which is how I was able to miss the wordplay.

                            Please splain it to me about the Ice Age reference. I could use a history lesson.

                              http://pubs.usgs.gov/gip/ice_age/ has a link to an 8-page pdf that summarizes it.

                              The Wikipedia has a nice one-page treatment: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_age.

                              More colloquially, when speaking of the last few million years, ice age is used to refer to colder periods with extensive ice sheets over the North American and European continents: in this sense, the last ice age ended about 10,000 years ago.
                              (BTW, those of you who haven't checked out the Wikipedia are missing out on a good source of info, especially on internet culture)
