    I bet he’d get along great with the grandmother in Jump Start.

    Ah, incorrect usage becoming the norm from common usage.

    One of my pet peeves (and I have a few of them) is that 12 a.m. is noon and 12 p.m. is midnight. It is up to and including the hour. 1 second after is the next a.m. or p.m.

    “I could care less” isn’t wrong — it’s just unfinished. The whole statement is “I could care less, if I tried.” But the person doesn’t even care enough to finish saying it. Now THAT’s not caring.

    Thus, this proves Nate could not care less. Besides, he’s too busy heading towards home to care. :p

    People fight so hard to keep the language exactly the way they learned it and it really doesn’t matter because it is going to change anyway


    If we could time travel, even as little as 200 years future or past, we might have a hard time understanding people speaking naturally

    This isn’t stuff like the subjunctive mood or ablative case where they start to go away because they’re able to be easily inferred by context or with another case and prepositions. This is about being just plain wrong :P

    And this is coming from a grammar nazi (with a BA in linguistics) :)

    I know! It makes no sense. We don’t count 10-1-2-3-4…etc. so why should the clock?

    Technically, one should use simply “noon” or “midnight.” The “m” stands for the Latin “meridiem” which means noon.

    12 pm is noon, 12 am is midnight.

    He means I COULDN’T care less. My science teacher does that, and it drives me NUTS!

    The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language has a usage note on this topic: “By convention, 12 AM denotes midnight and 12 PM denotes noon. Because of the potential for confusion, it is advisable to use 12 noon and 12 midnight.”15
