This is not the worst one I have seen.

"I could care less."

It's "I COULDN'T care less!"

Saying "I could care less" suggests that you care a little, the very opposite of what you are trying to say.

That one really winds me up, because the logic is RIGHT THERE in the words. How are people too idiotic to even understand what they themselves are stating?!


Saying "Math", however, really doesn't bother me that much. The meaning is clear.

I couldn't care less whether people say Math or Maths.


Damn, David Mitchell got there before me and I only just realized it. Seriously, this has been bugging me for years, and I'm now thinking that I would get on pretty well in a the pub with David

What I find strange is sometimes I can't even understand the Britts on BBC.

They speak like they have a mouth full of marbles.

I'm I right or am I right?

It's okay and I don't find it as a personal attack as I have travelled outside the US far and wide. Not so much in Europe as I find it to be a boring country


Evidently I do not think you have ever been to Europe. If you had you would have noted that Europe is not a country...


I find it abundantly hysterical that you come here and basically call me a liar by stating that I have never been to Europe. Sooooo, for your survival in this thread, I admit only, that I mis-quoted by saying that Europe is a country (that I visited) instead of a very tiny continent (tiny in reference to Africa. America, Suda America and oh I could name one more that not many lives on, Antarctica)....But it does not change the fact that I found the two tiny countries that I visited in EUROPE quite boring. So while I should have stated the particular countries I visited while in Europe, doesn't change the fact that the European countries I visited are part of Europe. Like I said.....are very BORING!

However, Amsterdam/Holland/The Netherlands/Nederlands was very exciting...yet expensive. I will spend money to visit there again. So if your aim is at geography...there ya go!!!!!!!!!! Still boring
except for Holland.

Hopefully, that settled your ruffled feathers. SPAIN/Barcelona (the pick pocketing capital of the world was a drag).....PARIS (the folks keep their noses too far up in the air for me).....I found extremely boring


Yet Amsterdam, and all of her glory, I loved
As for the rest of the tiny continent...thumbs down. I am on my way in 5 months to Russia....I'm sure I'll find it a blast!

Hmmmm....I wonder if someone as yourself would consider Russia a part of europe, because they certainly don't.

What rhetoric and such a small statement to make by yourself...I'm sure you could have wasted more time critiquing the post of someone else...but no matter. But when such a small continent is made in the mentions...I can see your feebile argument when one makes a mistake...touche' if that makes you feel better.

Until next time ...Omsagasaga gwemamba elugaha ebugana emzela
And if you don't know what that means....then go figure it out, since this post is directed at a nit-picker.

Have a Great Day!

I meant no offence but they information you selected to share does make it seem you do not know what you are talking about.



we speak the English language different than other European Nation


Most other European nations have their own language. English is spoken in the United Kingdom and Ireland..




It's okay and I don't find it as a personal attack as I have travelled outside the US far and wide. Not so much in Europe as I find it to be a boring country


How can you consider Europe a boring country. Do you know how big it is. How many different cultures and geographies are there.. You say that you have not traveled much in Europe but also state you have been to adleast seven different countries there. Further you state that Europe is boring on a later post you state...




However, Amsterdam/Holland/The Netherlands/Nederlands was very exciting



Which are incidentally part of Europe. I am not saying you have not been to Europe. But what you are saying does not add up.




Hmmmm....I wonder if someone as yourself would consider Russia a part of europe, because they certainly don't.


No Russia is not part of Europe. Nor is Egypt part of Europe although you used it in reference to Europe earlier..




but no matter. But when such a small continent is made in the mentions


Actually Europe is bigger in size than the USA. 3930000 / 3794083 (sq miles..) Really I am beginning to think you never went to Europe at all...




America isn't called The Melting Pot for no reason


You may well call it a melting pot it is not refereed to as such in the UK. If you want to see a real melting point go to London. America is a segregated and renowned for geographical racism.

Anyway without further ado please find attached a map of the United States of Europe...

First of all, I never ever made reference to visiting Egypt (as its continent is Africa) as being a part of Europe nor did I EVER make reference to visiting seven (7) nations of Europe as I wouldn't waste one red cent to visit a nation/continent full of hypocrites like where I live...are you mad
And if I "EVER" made that reference, please provide proof or point out in "all honesty" where I ever said I visited Egypt and stated it was part of Europe....you're crazy as I never ever said that!!!!!!!!!!

Get off your high horse for starters and stop misconstruing (I am giving you the benefit of the doubt within your own ignorance) my words...you fraud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I never said that I visited Egypt and it was part of Europe...EVER!!!!!! What I said was...that I had "travelled far and wide" and included Egypt as one place that I have visited.

Also, point out anywhere that I stated I visited seven (7) nations within Europe.....again, something's terribly wrong with you....but I'm sure it's a tad bit of jealousy or just maybe you're plain ole' ignorant! Maybe no one else in this forum wants to admit it...but I see it clearly!

Secondly.....we can debate over and over about what nations within Europe I have visited (not really)...and you being Non-American (or for that matter being me), can certainly point out or state my inaccuracies. However, I have stated....the European nations that I DID visit were boring...BORINGggggggggggggggg Period!!!!!!!!

I meant that and I mean that still (you live in a boring nation IMO, it's that simple, get over it).....your tiny Nation means nothing to me....get over it and move on with your life, please!

What's your problem? You're not going to change the fact that I disliked France or Spain....so what's your point? Oh that's right...you don't have one...except to point out some informalities that I submitted too eons ago.

What A Loser...I've had enough of your insignificant rhetoric and besides, this OP was about the word MATH(S) in case you forgot!



PS
Oh and BTW, in case you missed my prior writings (which you obviously chose too) The United States of America/Western Hemisphere is far, far bigger than your tiny Lil' European Union/Nation can ever be, so please...the little map you provided means nothing to me...and it will always be larger and stronger today and tomorrow, hence different dialects and languages.

Please move on and stop wasting my time
