Metric or Imperial? (Read 82 times)

    How do you want the splits that measure less than a mile imported into your log?

      I was thinking the other day that it's been a long time since we've had a poll.  Thanks!

        I was thinking the other day that it's been a long time since we've had a poll.  

         

        X has been slacking off!

          True. Perhaps I should poll if an ostrich is actually faster than a seal. Actual science and examination be damned! The actual truth lies with how the answer makes one feel about oneself.

            I was going to do a variation of this poll with whether the United States should convert to metric.  You commies will pry our cups and gallons out of our cold, dead hands!

              D is wrong. It should read: "Could care less: What's all the fuss about?"

               

              Therefore I'm abstaining in protest.

                Could care less implies that you do care a little bit.  Couldn’t care less means that you don’t care at all.

                5k - 17:53 (4/19)   10k - 37:53 (11/18)   Half - 1:23:18 (4/19)   Full - 2:50:43 (4/19)

                  Could care less implies that you do care a little bit.  Couldn’t care less means that you don’t care at all.

                   

                  I'm sorry that's not correct.

                    Knowing the OP very well, this comment will legitimately mess with his head.

                      I actually had could care less as a 5th choice, but the clown emoji wouldn't post there.

                        If you could care less then you, at the very least, care a little (or maybe you care way too much).  So how much do you care?   For reference here's Urban dictionary's explanation

                          There was apparently some intent to say it backwards in a kind of wry way by folks in the southern US at one point in time. It stuck but I'm betting most modern folks using it this way aren't aware of the origin...

                            I could care more.

                              Urban Dictionary is wrong a lot though.

                                I approve of both the sentiment, but more importantly as a member of the grammar police, the phrase.
