Imponderables

Finally, a friend on Facebook asked a question that no one (apparently) has dared to ask until now: After 35 years of leading Libya, why is Moammar Gadhafi still only a colonel?

I mean, couldn't he just order someone to promote him to general, or even Exalted Supreme Commander of All Libyan Forces? What's the point of being a dictator if you can't get that?

The father of the friend who posed this query came up with a possible answer: "He's a modest man."

Does his army have generals? If so, how do they feel taking orders from a colonel? And if not, how was the army doing so well against the opposition?

Finally, how do you spell his name, anyway? Is it "Gadhafi" or "asshole"? (Yes, I stole that joke too.)
