I really wish that they would get rid of the ads in the header of this site because every time I go to type in the search bar BAM spammed with some stupid ad I could care less about. I understand if these ads are for their sponsors but they dont need to come popping out and stop you from typing!

No, wait.


Could care less is fine. You're using sarcasm when you say that you could "really care less" about something. How is that such a tough concept to grasp?

It's a nonsensical phrase.

The use of I could care less implies that you at least care a little about the advert.

No, I believe that you're using sarcasm when you say that. Like, "Yeah Mom, i want you to make more of that dry chicken from last night."

You're implying how absurd it would be to care even a little about the subject.

It makes perfect sense though, sarcasm isn't that tough of a concept.

Don't post then?

TS, the ads mean you don't have to pay for using the site.

You can say could care less instead of couldn't care less if everyone understands what you mean but technically it is wrong. The phrase wasn't originally sarcastic it just literally described how you feel i.e you don't care at all but obviously when you say you could care less instead it brings in the sarcasm. You can do it but it's not really a recognised phrase. And as for people who say 'could care less' without any irony then....... I despair.

AA: I'm Avi Arditti with Rosanne Skirble, and this week on Wordmaster: "Common Errors in English," from a professor who wrote the book.

RS: Paul Brians began with a Web site. It got so popular, it led to a book called "Common Errors in English Usage." Now there's a calendar of errors for every day of the year, for 2006.

AA: This week he started his 38th year of teaching at Washington State University, in the Pacific Northwest. We asked Professor Brians to name some of the errors he expects to hear on campus.



PAUL BRIANS: "One that is extremely common now, and it is so common now that I could be fighting a losing battle, is the expression 'could care less.' People say 'I could care less' when they mean 'I couldn't care less.' And the original expression is highly ironic. It's a sarcastic saying. 'You know what? I care so little about this, I could not possibly care any less than I do.'

"But people who don't understand what's being said think, 'Oh, I mean this ironically, so I'm going to say I could care less.' And, doing so, they think they're making something neutral into something ironic. But really they're making them sound like they don't know the original expression."


This man knows more about English language than either you or I
