99 Facts about Mu’ammar Qadhafi

The president of Libya is quite a character, approaching Kim-Jong-Il crazy. Here are some facts:

99- Qadhafi has a personal bodyguard comprised of 40 women trained in martial arts, known as the Amazonian Guard.

98- In 1999 Qadhafi announced his invention of a rocket car, the Saroukh el-Jamahiriya.

97- Although he has ruled Libya since 1969, Qadhafi holds no public office or title. He is referred to as the “Guide of the First of September Great Revolution of the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya” or “Brotherly Leader and Guide of the Revolution” in government statements and the official press.

96- Qadhafi has an entry on the Internet Movie DataBase.

95- In 1998 Qadhafi wrote Escape to Hell and other stories.

I’m not sure I can come up with 94 more, but I will post them as they come to me.
