    . . . about going from light to dark, dark to light, light to dark, dark to light.

    How is it possible not to know the difference? What irritates me is people who constantly on purpose forget the '

    The expression is supposed to be "I couldn't care less". It makes absolutely no sense otherwise.

    It does make sense, but it is no longer the widely used expression you refer too. I can of couse say:


    - You seem obsessed by her, why do you care so much about her?
    - I could care less I guess.
    - Please do so.




    And it would be perfectly understandable english..

    Re: I could care less

    Well yeah. But most people on the internet these days don't seem to know that

    - You seem obsessed by her, why do you care so much about her?
    - Me? Pfft, I could care less about her.
    - Whatever you BS artist.

    the internet is like communism. In theory, its great, but in practice it just doesn't work out the way it should.

    The Internet is like communism. Al Gore invented it, and then he lost the elections.
