Idi Amin (President of Uganda from 1971 to 1979) was a ruthless dictator known for his erratic behavior. When he inaugurated himself President for Life, he celebrated by being carried aloft through the streets in a sedan chair by four white men, which he jokingly referred to as “The White Man's Burden.” “We Africans used to carry Europeans, but now Europeans are carrying us. We are now the masters,” he was quoted as saying.

Shin Sang-Ok was a famous film director known as the Orson Welles of South Korea. He established Shin Film and made many films through the 1960s which garnered recognition for South Korea at various film festivals. In 1978, he was kidnapped and brought to North Korea where he says he was imprisoned and forced to modernize the repressive country's film industry. Dictator-in-waiting Kim Jong-Il wanted to show the world that creativity could thrive in North Korea. After three years in prison, Shin was united with Choi, and the two were instructed by Kim Jong-Il to make films for him in order to gain global recognition for North Korea's film industry.

The result was a series of films, including Pulgasari, a blatant Godzilla rip-off, albeit with a Socialist message and heavily controlled by Jong-Il. After making many films for Kim Jong-Il, in 1986 Choi and Shin escaped from North Korean supervision to a US embassy while in Vienna.

Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos, rulers of the Philippines, were huge Beatles fans. The Fab Four were invited to play the Philippines on their 1964 world tour, which they accepted. However, upon arriving, they were greeted at their hotel by military personnel who told them they were required to meet with the Marcoses at the presidential palace for a luncheon. Having just flown in from Tokyo and needing rest for their 2 shows later in the day, they declined.

He took his adoration to the extreme, however, by employing only female bodyguards to protect him. Nicknamed ''The Amazonian Guards" by Western Journalists, these females were all trained in weaponry and allowed to wear makeup and high heels; they were also reported to be virgins.

Adolf Hitler - Invented the Blow-Up Doll

Adolf Hitler, in an attempt to prevent the spread of syphilis in his soldiers, came up with what is considered the first blow-up sex doll. They were referred to as “synthetic comforters” and were designed with blond hair, blue eyes and small enough to fit in a backpack.

After extensive “testing,” at least 50 dolls reportedly went into production, but many soldiers refused to carry them. The blow-up doll factory itself was presumed to have been blown up during the bombing of Dresden in 1942.

That country, Turkmenistan, is a former Soviet republic sitting strategically between Iran and Afghanistan. And the man who runs it is Saparmurat Niyazov. When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the leader of Turkmenistan, Saparmurat Niyazov, stepped in to fill the void.

He renamed himself Turkmenbashi and created a golden statue of himself in the center of the capital, which rotated so it always faced the sun. He didn't stop there – his face and name appeared everywhere, on money, street corners, vodka bottles, and he even renamed the month of January Turkmenbashi. “I'm personally against seeing my pictures and statues in the streets - but it's what the people want," he modestly said.
