A quick aside. Why do Americans insist on saying 'I could care less' when in the UK, we use the far more reasonable 'I couldn't care less'? Is it just a contraction, which happens to give the opposite meaning?vision-master wrote:I could care less.Pops wrote:Yea, too bad for PO.com. What say we keep it that way?
quite logical, indeed. However, you chaps post notices in front of hotels that read "No Football Coaches" when what you mean is "No Soccer Vans." We're even. btw, I could care less can be interpreted to mean I could care less than you seem to think I should. Its one of those verbal paradoxes such as a house burning up meaning the same thing as a house burning down.davep wrote:A quick aside.
