    • ...I could care less about the pretty buildings...

    Didn't you mean to say "I couldn't care less..."

    Sorry, that's just a pet peeve of mine.

    I'm also of an age where I make fun of 'proactive' and know what specious really means. I'm just rude enough to make fun of 'proactive' to someone's face, point out that they don't mean specious when they use it and correct "could care less".

      I think you could almost always care less about something, just maybe not a helluvalot less, and I believe that's what's implied, that it is on the very low end of things you could possibly care about :-)

        Well, that sentiment could be captured better with the idiom that I've just minted "I could care more"

        Let's try it!

        ...I could care more about the pretty buildings...

        I like it!

        The implication is there that it's not the lowest on your list of things that you care about, but it's also not very high. :-)
