    In early December I was in Las Vegas and we had dinner one night at The Top of the World restaurant in the Stratosphere. The restaurant slowly rotates, so the view out the window is constantly changing. Of the 10 people at our table, 5 of us suffered extreme vertigo. Dizziness, a sensation of falling and nausea. We were miserable and unable to even eat the fine cuisine that was prepared for us. When the bill finally arrived I handed $1200 to my eldest daughter's boyfriend and told him to take care of it. The 5 of us made a beeline for the elevator.
    It took a half an hour after leaving before I started feeling better.

    It happened to me at The Space Needle in Seattle about 21 years ago, but it wasn't nearly as bad back then.
