Somewhat off topic, I always found this odd. "I could care less." That means you care a great deal and that it is possible for you to care less than you do.
Why do Americans say this? It's essentially the opposite of what they mean.

The Brits, Aussies and Canadians all say, "I couldn't care less", which makes far more sense because it suggests that your level of caring is so low, it couldn't possible get any lower.
We say "couldn't care less" as well. At least some of us.
