If you could care less, that means you care a bit.

I've thought that a number of times. I just imagined it was a typo. Or someone didn't realise the actual meaning of the phrase. Without the, 't, it becomes a pretty much pointles statement does it not? I've pos repped Walker once because he corrected someone on this or something similar.

Just an FYI for dog owners during the snow, to wash their paws after walks.

Dogs have been dying due to rock salt and/or antifreeze getting on their paws during a walk, then ingesting it when they get home by licking their paws. Antifreeze is a serious mother****er and why they won't add a bittering agent to deter animals from consuming it when they come across it is beyond me.

Same goes for cats but not nearly as easy to monitor if you're letting them out on their own.

The proper phrase here is still couldn't care less but most people just don't pay attention I suppose.

I hear it said both ways. I could care less or I couldn't care less. It's been brought up in movies and comedy routines as well. I don't know how people got "I could care less" stuck in there heads but it's been said enough that it gets repeated and people just don't really think about it hard enough to realize it doesn't make sense.
Kind of weird.

No class today, so I decided to go look in my external harddrive to see if something interesting popped up. Clicked on the very first episode of The Wire because I wanted to know if I remembered a quote from that show correctly. Almost nine hours later I've watched 9 episodes in a row. Living the good life without commitments.

It's illegal to use proper grammar in Oklahoma.
