position css

Short & accurate definition about position in CSS

Ever since I started developing web, I've seen and used the CSS attribute so-called "position". But I'd never seem to understood what it does, I just randomize its value until I got what I needed (yeah that's stupid and ignorance). But then, one day, I realize something big, something important is missing... I feel so empty inside... DAMN I HAVE TO WRAP MY HEAD AROUND THIS "POSITION" THING! So here it hoes *goes (sorry, typo), real short and accurate. Hope this post will help some fallen angel like I used to be.
