I could [not] care less


I could [not] care less
When one usually states “I could care less”, they usually mean “I could not care less”. [e.g. “I could care less about linguistics.”]

In order for one to “care less” about a subject, they must first care about it somewhat. Saying “I could care less about … ” does indeed imply, nay dictate, that there is some degree of care.
