I, too, have noticed that "I could care less" seems like an irrational choice of words when meaning to imply the point that one does not care in another's idea, however the statement suggests that he could, in fact, care less than he does now, so he has given some interest in the topic at hand.

Well,

"I could not care less"
is negative like "I dont give a sh*t"

"I could care less"
means you care even if its just a little bit.

"I couldn't care less" should be right.

"I could care less" is nonsensical.

Thats what I thought, but I hear so many people say "I could care less", that I had to ask.

i could care less is what people are used to saying though, so you guys need to stop making a huge fuss about it.

not that you did, but everyone I know always corrects me and im like ARRGH!

I have often thought about that too. I believe it is, or should be, "I couldn't care less" because it implies that you care so little about something, that it is absolutely impossible for you to care less. Whereas "I could care less" implies that you must be at least slightly interested.

It annoys the piss out of me when people say "I could care less", and usually they think they're clever for saying it. Then when you correct them, they say, "It's just an expression, it's sarcasm." No, idiot, you said it wrong. It's, "I couldn't care less."

-totally favors simon's explanation or Madcap's because it takes less brain power to understand-
But both of their explanations are right. ^_^

"I could care less" is a totally pointless thing to say, and a total bastardization of the saying...

it should be "i couldn't care less" but i guess the "n't" was lost amongst people who weren't smart enough to realize that "i could care less" doesn't get much of a point across

I used to confuse people with my colloquial use of "I could care less" so now I just say
"I don't give a fuck" I guess it's not quite as ambiguous.

Well, if people are confused by "I could care less," it's not very colloquial, is it? :P

Haha I correct people on this all the time, glad I'm not the only person who understands the idiocy of saying "I could care less".

lol, theres a bunch of people at my school who say "I could care less" but I think the most famous person whos trying to be clever that does it, is Dr. Cox from scrubs :p I just noticed that today, and seeing as someone famous/supposedly clever did it, it made me make this thread.

Well when you travel outside of your place of origin and converse with people that have a different interpretation of speech and word patterns yes it is. At home no problem .
2000 miles from home "I don't give a fuck" works.

yes it is i COULDN'T care less because it means your "care level" is at the lowest possible point, if you "could" care less, then your care level is currently high enough to have the ability to lower.

edit: point of this thread? it's extremely obvious and there's no debate going on..
my gear:
Jackson DKMG(the one with EMG 81/85's)
b-52 AT 212 100 watt amp
old gear i'll probably sell eventually:
yamaha beginners guitar
gunmetal grey Fender squire strat
Fender 65R amp

"I could care less" shows signs of interest. I voted "I could care less" because I could care less about this thread. I certainly cared more about it than a dozen other treads I didn't even read the titles too. Good job, TS.
