@kickycan,
Both are sarcastic , but I Could care less is more sarcastic than the other one.

@cchindiastore,
Couldn't care less is factual, not sarcastic.

I am at the lowest possible level of caring. It couldn't be any less.

@Lordyaswas,
That is accurate.
It means that his degree of interest is zero.

I don't believe that it can be said to always be the case, Lordy.

I suspect this was meant to read: I do believe that is not always the case.

@Lordyaswas,
I couldn't care less about you learning how to play the sardonicism, you a muse.

Think it over...and see if you can see the difference between the two statements.

@Frank Apisa,
Frank, when you make a mistake, correct yourself and move on, everyone thinks nonetheless of you.

That is good philosophy.
Your mistake, was a run on sentence.

That happens a lot in this forum.

There's a good reason these happen a lot in this forum. It's because they are as natural as rainwater. The writing here is simply speech put to letters.

Run on sentences are things that teachers unduly focus on because they know little about language and they have to fill up teaching hours.

No, but it is good advice.

It could be, Frank, if it came from someone that was even half ways knowledgeable about how language works.

Someone knowledgeable about how language works would be able to provide a suitable explanation for the proposition he advanced.
