Used to express sarcasm when someone states the obvious, or states a fact that has been delivered like a second ago.

It actually has a few meanings that are worded differently but I can't put those on here.

It's similar to what you might have studied as English idioms.

Some phrases have come to mean slightly different meanings than what the actual words would indicate when used in certain circumstances.
