Maybe he should grab an OED before commenting: "tidbit" is a contraction of "tide bit", "tide" meaning feast. Some of us former colonists know the Queen's English better than most Brits.

Don't you mean "former colonials"? Or (assuming you're American) did the Americans colonise somewhere? (Hark, do I hear a can of worms opening?)

Latest comment: I think that "I couldn't care less" means you are at 1 on the chart. cause you care... you just couldn't care less. Being at 0 on the graph is "i don't care"

I believe the of "I could care less" meaning "I don't care" comes as a contraction of "If I could care less, I would." We're just too lazy to spit out the whole expression. Should be perfectly understandable, espec ially to people living in Worcestershire.

Brillant Brit. Stupid Americans probably wouldn't understand the humour. Or is that "humor"?
