Mercy is a humorous name for the overload tool that makes it possible to spread outstanding repetitions into the future. Alternatively, it also makes it possible to execute one's learning ahead of time (e.g. before a vacation, or ahead of an exam). Mercy was proposed by Andrzej Horodenski in 1992. It was also proposed independently by dozens of users of other spaced repetition applications (e.g. Michael Nielsen).
