Seriously, who wouldn't want to turn a page with YouTube, Vimeo, or even inline videos into a handy gallery? I know I use this all the time:

Today I want to share with you some cool CSS loading effects for grid images. You can use them on your portfolio, blog, or anywhere you want. The setup is quite simple. We use Normalize.css as an alternative to the traditional CSS reset, ZURB Foundation to create a responsive grid, Masonry to create a dynamic grid layout, imagesLoaded to check if the images have been loaded, and Infinite Scroll by Paul Irish to load more images and append them to...

Just been having a play about with the new CSS3 filters and the things you can do are quite fun! http://jsfiddle.net/ahallicks/monnamq3/1/ shame about the lack of IE support AT ALL.

You can have a play about with some other examples in my CSS3 Generator Chrome Extension - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/css3-generator/dmlgmehijaodgkkooghkknjjkddahmej

I'd consider myself to be a "normal person" and I can understand that the "point of contact" is where repulsion starts because beyond that a further force is required to push the electrons/particles/whatever closer together. I'd say it's the point at which repulsion matches attraction without an external force acting upon anything.

I saw this the other day. Hard to believe it's going away. I hope they will maintain the CDN for a while as I still have several sites using it.
I think it just didn't get the love and couldn't keep up with the Angular / Bootstrap ecosystem we all seem to adopting now.
RIP YUI.
