Federal Bureau of Investigation has posted on its website an interesting and exhaustive file on Apple’s Cofounder and late CEO Steve Jobs. According to Gawker, which first spotted the file, the 191-page document reveals that Jobs was considered for a “sensitive position” in the Bush I White House back in 1991. It also contains results of an investigation into a 1985 bomb threat against Jobs.

How did Jobs do in High School?  2.65 GPA – hallmark of all geniuses.

An excerpt also includes comments from several people who noted Jobs’ reality distortion field, included right below.

Several individuals questioned Mr. Jobs’ honesty stating that Mr. Jobs will twist the truth and distort reality in order to achieve his goals. They also commented that, in the past, Mr. Jobs was not supportive of [redacted] (the mother of his child born out of wedlock) and their daughter; however, recently has become supportive.

As the FBI agents did their background check on Jobs, they interviewed Apple employers and the folks Jobs suggested. Another quote said: “Several individuals commented concerning past drug use on the part of Mr. Jobs.” Apple’s cofounder, of course, famously experimented with LSD back in the early days and never shied away from admitting the fact publicly. He used to claim LSD was one of the “most important experiences” of his life. Here is a quote from CBS’s 60 Minutes Steve Jobs special:

Definitely, taking LSD is one of the most important things in my life. Not the most important, but right up there.

Jobs grew up in California where the 1960s hippy culture prevailed long into the 1970s.
