I have no question about its safety, I just couldn't stand to deal with it and look at it.

Knot tying was rough for me in Boy Scouts. I can tie a square know and a decent bowline, but that other stuff comes out NFG.
I have worked kinks/spirals out. Throw the cord in a pot of boiling water and then work it back & forth around a post/pipe/tree as you pull it out.

14-16ga...I'd probably toss them, not them 12ga I paid enough for the ones I have here. The one I keep protected inside still looks like new but the other one was outside for a long while and sure is showing signs of UV damages, color is much lighter and sheating much less flexible than the other one.

Could the sheating shrink enough to twist the cord? I think so from others I have seen.

Boil it and stretch it.
