Mensagem:  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.
