Re: How'd you come up with your username(s)?

Mercury->Merckle->Mercy. I used to be an AGM in Alleria, which is a play-by-forum roleplaying game. My brother in arms and all-around good guy invited me to mod there (GM Sandlord/BunBun if anyone was involved with the game) and I needed a name. I'm a huge Freddy Mercury fan as well as having some l...

Re: fitness for summer

I didn't mean core as abdomen, I meant core as 'the rest of it' as well. Most complex exercises that center on the abdomen are usually rather good for generally body strengthening in my opinion. Correct me if I'm still wrong in the use of the term. :]
