We say "couldn't care less" in Britain.

I've never understood this about American English.

"I could care less" instead of "I couldn't care less" is one of my pet peeves.

I always thought when I heard someone say "I could care less" I was hearing them wrong. So I'm not the only one.

To clarify: If you believe that it's "couldn't care less" in British English and "could care less" in American English, that isn't exactly true. What is true: "couldn't" is right, regardless. However, America is filled with a preponderance of incredibly stupid people who, among other things, are PROUD of their ignorance. The words, "I could care less what you're doing bitch, gimme another beer" is spoken millions of times every day. It's a culture of stupidity.

It's actually because if you cared less it would almost become hate and as such you would then begin to care. By not caring how little you care about something you have truly reached the neutral ground of zero ******* .
I.E "I could care less, but I can't be bothered."

It's called sarcasm. When you say "I could care less" you're supposed to say it SARCASTICALLY.
If you don't say it with sarcasm, then this post is true. You're dumb and should say "I couldn't care less."

Except I've heard/seen many, MANY people say "I could care less" when they really mean "I couldn't care less".

People are THAT stupid.

Disclaimer: Neither American nor British English is my first language!

However, from what I understand is that, if you say "I couldn't care less", you mean that you don't care so much, that it is almost impossible for you to care less.

If you say, however, that you could care less, it probably means that you don't care so much, it almost breaks the human conception of "not caring", but because you are such a good person, you could even care LESS than that mere equivalent of nothing.

That means, if you could care less, then you actually care about 0.01 percent, just to be polite, but you could care less then that, because you don't care.

Maybe "I could care less" is just saying that they care so little about it that they don't even bother to reduce how much they care, they simply ignore it. Honestly though I always hated when it was phrased that way.

Just check out David Mitchell's Soapbox on Youtube he has some interesting thought on the matter at hand and the reason I'm not providing a link is because my internet's kinda acting ***** .

This confused me for a couple years of my childhood, I would always say 'couldn't' instead.
I was a fairly strange kid.
