In a couple places mimic should be spelled without the K at the hand.

that before hard murdered me -> that before had murdered me
A hard murdering sounds really painful which I bet it really was.

Another great article.

Trivia:

Panic/panicking and traffic/trafficking also fit that pattern.

There's probably a reason, but I'm not sure what that reason is.

The reason is that English is, by and large, a very silly language. Because everything is an exception. But that's not what exception means. Yet it is.

You need a "k" after "c" to separate it from "i" and "e", otherwise pronunciation would have been altered. "C" followed by the i,e, and y is pronounced differently, compare: cat, coach, cube and cigar, celebrity, cyber.

I've seen it explained before that the "k" is necessary to preserve the hard "c" sound, but I still don't know why this should be. "Celtic" doesn't have to be "Ckeltic" to pronounce it with an initial hard "c".

I used to tell people my name was spelled

Klyle

then I'd tell them that the 'K' was silent.

Don't know where to start with this one. I think you meant to say:

I could care less about my sanity I need to obsessively control every training variable possible, and only grinding away on the indoor trainer allows this.
