You often make me smile, BH. Unintentionally, I'm sure, but there you go.



Read this one and "smile", cretin. The guy who'll break Jasmine's hymen will get the Ahab award!

In that case, the statement is not simply not literal, it's faulty. "I could care less" is stupid and betrays a deplorable lack of semantic grasp of the language.


Um, here I'd have to step out of our corner and agree with Maestro.

"I could care less"  and "I couldn't care less" basically are used to convey the same opinion: I don't care. I have theorized privately the reason is that when spoken rapidly or in a noisy environment, "I couldn't care less" sounds much like "I could care less". The "n't" sound gets swallowed up by both the background noise and certain ennui on the part of the speaker, which leads them to drop that particular word ending.

In other words, I could care less if someone couldn't care less.

Crapestro didn't say that. At any rate, his "opinion" of a sycophant is of little value, even if as the broken clock it sometimes shows accidentally the right time.

I would do nothing to the hillary supporter

Related. Look at the number of arrests at the Republican national convention every 4 years vs the arrests at tbe dnc.

I think last time around there were 3 arrests at the dnc (arrests of protesters getting out of hand) and there were well over 100 at the end in the first night. The left is a violent crowd.

I've read that the "I could care" version snuck over here from England. If that's true, it goes with what you're saying. Some of the English accents have suffixes that sound clipped to American ears kind of like Hagrid from Harry Potter who says things like 'innit?' for "Isn't it?"

Wow, "harry potter" quoted as some kind of literary reference! What's next? "Batman"?

What is it you're "maestro" of, exactly? Ways to show how inept you are?

The point of civil disobedience is to get arrested without being violent.

See: Mahatma Ghandi.
