It's a compliment, I think, indicating that one is worthy of respect. Why 'mericans interpret the applying of one's size 10's to somebodies posterior in this way is beyond me but then so is quantum physics . Us Brits would probably say "My gosh, what a capital fellow!!" Which indeed you are.

Great report, thanks very much.

Cheers,

Dickyb

Definitely a nice thing to say to a person, it means that you have done (or do) something very well.

Great report!

That picture captures it pretty well.

Let me know if you're ever traveling across the US. It would be my pleasure to buy you dinner and a couple of drinks.

Agreed.

If you are traveling across the US or Canada (my birthplace) let me know. I would gladly buy you some dinner and drinks.

Momi,
For American expressions such as "kick ass!" use the site:

www.urbandictionary.com

and you should get a more accurate contemporary definition such as these for "kicking ass"

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=kick+ass

It can be used in football also as in, "Let's go out there and kick some ass!" or, "that team really kicks ass!"

It is definitely a complement!
