So, since I am completely enamored of this phrase, I thought I'd start a topic for things we don't care about, not one bit, but are forced to hear about.  I'll start with this:

LeBron James.  Or even the NBA in general.

I'll broaden this significantly to celebrities in general.  I fundamentally do not understand the fascination with their lives, romances, houses...why does anyone even remotely care?  All I want are entertaining movies and music I enjoy.

Listing things we don't care about.  Man, summertime on the hockey message board.  Alright.


Anything reality television.

Any documentary about aliens, monster whathaveyous, undiscovered animals, or undiscovered alien monster animal whathaveyous.

Political spin.

Dietary trends.

Pharmaceuticals, pills, cosmetic treatments, snake oils.

Infomercials.  Any object on infomercials.  Any person on infomercials.

Anything on TMZ.  Anything in tabloids.

Banal tweets.

Twats that tweet banal tweets.

Corporate branding.

98% of commercials.

This! I feel bad for those with celiac's because they HAVE to eat that stuff. My sister in law's chiropractor "diagnosed" 3 out of 5 of their family as gluten sensitive. Omg. Family dinners suck!

I love this tread title. I worked for a guy who calmly approached adversity with the mantra..."I do not give...one...f@@@." I adopted it and it has served me well over the years.

11 -- I love the phrase and the thread title, but isn't the point of it kinda missed by this type of list?  i.e. when GMTM buys out Ehrhoff with zero f---s given, isn't the point more like "Whoa -- he just tossed his best defenseman to the curb with zero f---s given!  He's an animal!"?

OTOH, if someone here just says he's not interested in the Kardashians (and no offense is intended to whomever did so) -- my reaction is more of a yawn -- i.e. no kidding -- i.e. of course you're not interested in the Kardashians, or non-fat peach yogurt, or the governor of Saskatchwan.  But that doesn't make me say "Holy mackerel -- that guy really gives zero f---s about the Kardashians!  He's dangerous!"

I think "zero f---s given" should only be used when using it makes you sit up and take notice.

Something like "PASabreFan doesn't care what nfreeman thinks about the Pegulas' daughter's twitter feed!  Even though nfreeman could ban him or change his avatar anytime he wants!  What a madman!  Zero f---s given there!"

Good point.

To make it relevant, when a Commie Liberal who is "Gluten Intolerant" wants to go out to dinner and shows up in their Prius to order the kale salad, I will roll up in a Tahoe with the A/C cranking and all the windows open, then order a half dozen Hefenweiz to go with my breaded veal and loaded baked potato.

With the advent of facebook I'm surprised that these reunions still go on.  My 25th is this year and I won't be going just like I haven't to all the others.  But if you're on facebook you can probably keep up with fringe high school "friends" on there, and let's be honest that's probably the limit of what you want or need to know about most of these people.  All of my good friends from high school I still see and talk to pretty regularly, the rest ......  zero ###### given.

I had this conversation with probably the smartest all-around person I know last night who is a top MD. At least the Gluten part. Humans are pretty much allergic to any foreign substance. Salt and wheat have been the basis of survival for millennia. It's a fad.

Speaking of which.....given the RJ diagnosis and recent celebs who have brought throat and mouth cancer into the limelight.....the whole HPV thing being a big cause? Really? For some reason I can just see a panel of black male researchers saying...."How do we get out of eating the ##### forever and still get our action?".....

And if your HS GF had posted a photo of herself looking extremely hot with a caption saying "I'm psyched for the reunion and I'm not going home empty-handed," and you had posted a similarly provocative reply, and then left that page open on your computer at home -- now that would be zero f---s given.

Content providers force service providers into buying their channels in bundles.  DirecTV wants a contract with Viacom to transmit Comedy Central to its customers?   DirecTV is forced to pay for MTV2 and all of their other ###### as well or else Viacom blacks out all its channels.

The antitrust lawsuit is going, but slowly.
