Gaddafi Dead: Dictator Also Remembered For Strange Habits (PHOTO)

  • gaddafi

    Muammar Gaddafi was known for years of tyranny and terror, and now that he has been confirmed dead, he may be remembered for some of the more strange things he wanted or had.

    Gaddafi had an all female virgin bodyguard crew. It is well documented that 40 highly trained military women, whom the dictator referred to as "Amazons," were hand picked and made to take a vow of chastity as well as wear makeup and high heel combat boots.
    For the last decade Gaddafi also had a Ukrainian nurse named Galyna Kolotnytska. Commonly known by the media as the "voluptuous" woman, she was always by his side and was one of his closest aids, as well as a rumored romantic tryst.
    Other nurses working for him referred to him as "papa" or "daddy."
    Gaddafi was also known for his crazy wardrobe styles dressing in everything from decorative military uniforms, Bedouin garbs, and 80s leisure suits. He also wore and appreciated African dress and culture and displayed it in many of his outfits.
    The ruler even had a bad fear of flying and elevators and would stay in a tent instead of a hotel because of his problems with height. He wouldn't travel higher than 35 steps, or fly longer than eight hours and would land in whatever location the plane was over if eight hours was approaching.

Gaddafi died of wounds suffered in his capture near his hometown of Sirte on October 20, 2011, a senior NTC military official said. National Transitional Council official Abdel Majid Mlegta told Reuters earlier that Gaddafi was captured and wounded in both legs at dawn on Thursday as he tried to flee in a convoy which NATO warplanes attacked.
