Q: O que significa " How many times do we say we don't care but deep down we fucking care so fucking much "?
A: It means that many times we say we do not care, but we really do care.

"Deep down" means "at the core of our emotions."

"Fucking" is being used to place heavy emphasis on "care" and "much." The speaker wants you to know that "we really, really, really care very, very, very much."

In other words:
"Many times we say with our words that we do not care, but in our inner thoughts/desires/emotions we actually care very much."

Translations of "Times"

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? Why at times does MAIL change pronunciation in some regions? (sounding as say) or (sounding as cell)

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (RU)? -I saw several times these types of sentences with this preposition 'in'. Such as ' in what know for'. I have been struggling with this to use.
A: Oh okay, well...

"to come together in" -> "to be the main parts of" or "to be together to form"

"what is known as…" -> "the thing that people call…"

So, the sentence basically means:
"Together, these (things) make what people call "ssam"."

I hope this made some sense.

Other questions about "Times"

Q: I went to abroad several times, and I always think that I'd like to be able to speak English better to enjoy talking. soa natural?
A: I've been abroad (or "I've gone abroad") several times and I always think that I'd like to be able to speak English better to enjoy talking.
Q: I heard that I have to repeat at least 6 to 7 times to put something into my long-term memory. soa natural?
A: "I heard that you have to repeat something six or seven times to get it into your long-term memory."

This would be a pretty casual way to express it. Since there are no numbers between six and seven, it sounds better to use "or" instead of "to". You'd use "to" to represent a wider range of numbers, like "six to eight times".
Q: Which one is most natural?

1.Eighteen multiplied by two third is twelve.
2.Eighteen times two over three equals twelve.
3.Eighteen times two devide by three equal to twelve
4.Eighteen multiplied by 2 divided by three equals twelve
A: 1. "Eighteen multiplied by two-thirds is twelve."

'Multiplied' and 'times' are both natural and correct, but 'times' is very casual.

The fraction ⅔ is read 'two-thirds'.
People sometimes say 'two over three', but it's not technically correct.
Even though ⅔ can be read 'two divided by three', you wouldn't hear this very often.
Q: 1:Didn't you just tell me to go out?
2:Didn't you tell me to go out a few times ago??
(Are they the same meaning??)
A: The first sentence sounds good, it means you were told to leave not that long ago. The second sentence does not sound correct, maybe instead "Didn't you tell me to go out a few moments ago?" This means the same thing.
Q: I practiced what I really wanted to say many times. soa natural?
A: It's well written and makes sense, but the word "rehearsed" makes it sound a little unnatural. Rehearsed is another way to say "practice". Reading it again though, the "in my mind" part of the sentence makes it awkward.
