How are you feelin'? I'm married with three kids, love cooking (when I find the time) and love old video games. I'm a retro nerd who loves to reminisce about the '80s and '90s and am an autism-awareness advocate. - PSN, Xbox Live and Wii U, game with me! @johnblueriggs (also on Instagram, Twitter and Pintrest)

What Does POS Mean? We Have the Answer!

As you browse Craigslist and Facebook swap sites and things of that nature, you come across three letters. POS. Once upon a time POS stood for Piece of S*** but, judging from what they're selling, you know that's not the case in this case. Those letters are popping up more and more. You don't know what they mean but you don't want to sound ignorant and ask. In case you're curious, we have the answer.

How To Remove a Ring from a Swollen Finger

Sometimes you get married, put on a few pounds and, before you know it, you're no longer able to take your ring off. Not that you should just be taking your wedding ring off, but other rings as well. Perhaps you have a new baby and don't want to scratch them with your rings or, from pregnancy or water retention or having a broken arm your finger looses circulation and needs to be removed, but can't. Often times doctors will simply cut the ring off, which isn't fair or very nice.

If you need to, here's a way you can remove your ring from a swollen finger.

These Sandwich Swords are a Blast from My Past

The other day I came across one of these little swords. They're often used in sandwiches or cheeseburgers you order to keep everything stacked and neat when carried from the kitchen to your table. Me? I always thought they were the free gift that came with your order to accessorize your action figures when I was growing up.

Do You Watch the Super Bowl for the Game or Commercials? [POLL]

No doubt about it. Many will be glued to their TVs to watch this year's Super Bowl. I also know several people who, because the Super Bowl is one of the most watched television events of the year (if not the most) that many watch for the creative, over-the-top, movie-esque commercials during the breaks. I want to know, do you watch the Super Bowl for the game, itself, or do you really just watch it for the commercials? Take the poll.

70-Year-Old Color-Blind Man Cured After Hitting Head in Nasty Fall

70-year-old Rich Riggs of Yakima was born colorblind. There are a couple of colors he could identify like blue and orange but, for the most part, he has said that almost everything else was a shade of grey. This was until recently when he took a nasty spill, hit his head and, when he gathered himself, he noticed a world of color before him. How do I know? Because he's my dad and he wouldn't lie to me.

How to Make Ramen From Scratch at Home [RECIPE]

Many of us grew up on ramen. It's a Japanese noodle soup and it's one of the cheapest items in any grocery store. Because of that, ramen, in America, holds a notion that ramen is cheap food for cheap people. That is not the case. If you've ever been to a restaurant and had real ramen, you'll know what I'm talking about. Someone decided to make ramen from stratch, from the stock to the noodles, and documented every step of the way for you to make it at home for yourself.

Why Wait for 2015? The Hoverboard Should Already Be Available and Here’s Why

Now that it's 2014, we're one year away from 2015 - the year Marty McFly travels into the future in Back to the Future part II. In that movie he rides what they called a Hoverboard. Basically, it's set up like a skate board but, instead of wheels, it hovers a few inches off the ground. Although it was just a movie, many are asking (usually, in a sarcastic sense) that there's only one year left until Hoverboards are available. I have reason to believe that the Hoverboard should have already been on the public market. Here's why.
