Okay, I hear and see on this site people saying "I could care less." Shouldn't it be "I COULDN'T care less"? Seems like if you could care less that's exactly what you could do . . . care less. But NOT caring less means that you've reached the bottom of caring, to the point where you care the least? I think I've just confused myself.

Comments?

Well now, way back when I was brand new..I recall seeing one of the first videos I'd come across on ATS and it happened to be about this very question. I figured I'd share on this slow Saturday morning. It has a happy ending, anyway.

On a related note, the use of the phrase "could of" is similar. It should be "could have".

There are dozens of similar phrases used frequently.

It bugs me when people confuse:

1) lose and loose
2) conscious and conscience
3) to and too

I'm a high-ranking grammar nazi and part of the typo gestapo!

However, I am very forgiving with "there," "their," and "they're"
