Copernicus H. Stringfellow, a.k.a. Nick, is not your run-of-the-mill genius. His mind is so powerful it can stop a speeding automobile or stem internal bleeding. As Nick goes about quietly doing good, he discovers that his powers are greatly enhanced by the nutrients present in Twinkies. Follow Nick on his amazing adventures in this humorous and exciting action-packed book for all ages. (Goodreads)

Here's a book I just received in the mail today (from author/publisher for review). I'm very giddy because it's been awhile since I received a book in the mail. Anyway, this sounds like a fun book and I'm looking forward to putting my nose in this book sometime today. :)

Page 56: "Nick was taking the Joneses to the Space Needle's Sky City Restaurant for dinner ... was originally built for the 1962 World's Fair.  It consisted of three immense steel beams reaching 500 feet into the sky topped with a round, almost saucer-like edifice.  They were seated by the window.  The dining area was a ring around the outside of the Needle's core about fifteen feet wide.  The dinner guests orbited the center core, which included the elevators, kitchen, restrooms, and so on, at a speed that gave them a 360-degree view of the city once every hour."

Oooo, sounds like a romantic place to have dinner!   Unless maybe if you have inner ear problems ..vertigo, motion sickness.
