Let me try:
I stand correct
The expresstion I know is "I stand corrected",
used by someone who admits that he/she is wrong, specially after being
corrected by someone else. I am guessing that the expression "I stand
correct" means the opposite, that is, the person insists to be right,
even though someone corrected him/her.
No shit Sherlock!
The sentence is said to someone who makes a very obvious statement,
sometimes just repeting what someone else said. It is the same as "duh!". The expression may sound insulting and/or sarcastic.
