Chimera

Is pronounced: chi-meera. Heard that on their radio commercial. I think that they don't know how to say their own name unless it's someones last name. The mythical beast is pronounced ki-meera. Am I wrong?

You are right, I have hear the ads too and wondered. Its got to be based on the mythology. Maybe the DJ dude wasn't told how to pronounce it or they don't know themselves. I once heard a shoe store commercial where the ad guys was listing the shoes on sale and said Reebok, Adidas, Nike- but pronounced Nike like Bike or Pike. Its like, you have never heard of Nike?

Great I'm not going insane. Perhaps they did it that way because morons wouldn't know how it was spelled and would get confused.

What station did you hear it on? I heard it on 96.9 which I thought was pretty weird, but maybe a lot of gamers are metal heads. Considering how they bragged up all the puzzles they had (I have never noticed the HUGE selection myself) maybe a station geared toward retirees might have been more profitable.

Yeah it was on 96.9, which I thought was odd too. Probably just trying to get to the younger crowd, the ones with all the disposable income.
