The Daily Ping

There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

Could you care less?

For the longest time, when I didn’t care about something in the least, I’d say that “I could care less about…” But as I thought about it, that phrase was just wrong… if I didn’t care about something, it should be, “I couldn’t care less about…” I’d heard people say both, though, and recently wondered which is more popular.

So, I did what any righteous geek would do: I went to Googlefight.

The winner? Interestingly enough: “could care less” by a margin of 150,000 to 124,000. So apparently I wasn’t alone when I told people I could care less.

But, really, I’m sure you couldn’t care less about this whole argument.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
