I just figured it out. "could care less" is like "I could care less about this, but I care so little about it I'm not even gonna put the effort to care less about it. Thats how little I care about this".

Are you still upset?

Couldn't care less makes more sense but I understand what people mean by 'could care less'. People need to learn what an idiom is lol.

What people mean by 'could care less' is 'couldn't care less'. They're just getting it wrong.

This could all be avoided if we just cared a little.

It's "I couldn't care less about this, because even if I wanted to put forth the effort to care less, I'd be incapable of doing so due to my utter lack of caring, and thus I'm relegated to caring at my current level, which is none"

I like the poll question better than any of the options.

"I couldn't caress," said the jerk who also happened to be a stereotypical Asian with bad enunciation.

I was about to debate this but then I realised how I'm wrong. >_>

In a sense I'm not wrong though. It is a phrase that says one thing, but through context it is clear it actually means something else (note: that wasn't supposed to be a a definition of 'idiom' before you all go throwing dictionaries at me).

Maybe I'm still wrong. When someone says 'I could care less' do you all really not know what they mean? I think it's silly too but I don't question it.

It's "couldn't care less" and I will murder people over this issue.

Nice try, but according to your logic, it still means you're not capable of caring less, because you care so little. So you actually couldn't care less. 'I couldn't care less' doesn't really imply that you don't care at all, just that you... couldn't care less

Checkmate.

Oh my gawd, everyone who thinks the phrase is "could care less" is a knuckle-dragging, mouth breathing mongoloid.

Surely if you can't care any less than you already do then you are at the minimum level of caring, which would be not caring at all.
