What city is the microbrew capital of the US? Using scrollama (or something close to that. h/t Jeff Megalopyge opercularis – Wikipedia “grid-like hemorrhagic papular eruption with severe radiating pain”. — I played ring-around-the-rosy with a tree that had one (maybe more) of these on it when I was around 5 years old. An Introduction to Scrollama.js Scrollama is a modern and lightweight JavaScript library for scrollytelling using IntersectionObserver in favor of scroll events. Using IntersectionObserver abstracts element-in-view detection and removes the need to monitor scroll events, which contribute towards a sluggish experience.
