    So I went to a GNC here in Hong Kong and bought what I thought were Mega Man multi-vitamins. When I got back to my room, I realized it said "Meca Man" rather than "Mega Man." Should I keep them? I've already taken one :noes:

    Look at the ingredients. Are they the same as Megamen? There's nothing crazy in there, is there?

    I'm gonna say it's probably a translation error. A "k" sound and a "g" sound are very similiar, and in some languages are interchangable. In Japanese, a k-consonant becomes a g-consonant sometimes, and in Korean, well, let's not get into k's vs. g's in Korean.

    Anyway, someone on the phone probably said to the Hong Kong marketing guy "Mega men" and he heard "Meka men" (remember K and G are very similar) and wrote it as "Meca men."

    That's my guess.

    ...or are they? :noes:

    I've been taking them the past few days so it really doesn't even matter anymore.
