Salvador Dali loved attention, and here are some unusual things that he did to get it. Dali said that he received messages from outer space through his mustache. He once arrived to an event in a limousine filled with cauliflower. He held a lecture in a deep-sea diving suit. Dali traveled with his pet ocelots. Dali was born in Spain in 1904.
