Fact #1017: In 1997, Apple stock hit a 12-year low that was partially caused by a single sale of 1.5 million shares ($22.5 million) by an anonymous party. This helped Jobs convince the board to oust CEO Gil Amelio and appoint himself as the replacement. Jobs was revealed to be the anonymous party.

Literally Emperor Palpatine lol.
