To offer advice or suggestion to resolve a problem. Often used in context of emphasizing common sense, a very strong opinion, or to belittle/mock a person's point of view.
Likely taken from GamePro magazine, which used the term as early as 1989 in conjunction with screengrabs of video to capture reader's attention to offer advice on completing video games and tying the term into the publication's title.
Protip: Don't raise your voice or joke about guns at the security station in an airport: you're asking for trouble if you do.
