I couldn't care less means you don't care at all and there is no room for caring less. That phrase is correct, if you are trying to show that you don't give a flying monkey butt. But let's examine flying monkey butt: how would one give a monkey butt, let alone make it fly? Just wonderin'

I want to know when God is going to pay the heating bill for all those open windows.

"Anything is possible."

Actually, no. Anything is not possible. I could sit here all day coming up with examples of things that are not possible. But let's start with one. I can't jump from here to the moon. Sorry. Can't do it. Not possible.
