MB and mg
MB is the abbreviation for Mbyte. It is an SI-multiple of the unit byte for
digital information storage or transmission and is equal to 106 (1000000) bytes.
Mg is an abbreviation of milligram. It is a unit of mass equal to one thousandth (10-3) of a
gram. To me it refers to the dosage of medications, I am taking. Ano ang gusto kong sabihin.
Ito. Conversation with a nurse:
Me: Why am i taking 2 megabytes of my diabetic prescription?
Me: My prescription is 2000 megabytes everyday. Why was it reduced to 2 megabytes
Me: That is not enough to control my diabetes and I do not want to be pricked with that
insulin every time my blood sugar level exceeds 200 level.
Me: Can you not understand me?
Nurse: What's megabytes? Toink.
