Considering the original source is a tabloid, albeit, a Japanese one, we have our doubts on this story. Still, Bloomberg has reported that Steve Jobs was stopped when exiting Japan in July because he had ninja throwing stars (shuriken) in his carry-on baggage.
The report came in SPA! magazine, Bloomberg reported. According to the story, Jobs vowed to never return to Japan. A reminder should be issued that Jobs doesn't fly coach; this was his own private plane, too.
That fact was supposedly noted by Steve Jobs as well. Reportedly, Jobs told authorities that wouldn’t make sense for a person to try to hijack his own plane (which is the only part of this report that really makes sense).
Apparently, though, Kansai airport, where Jobs was flying out of after a family vacation, doesn't have different rules for private planes. The airport confirmed an
incident, but not the
incident, not noting the passenger name.
Seriously, Steve, a ninja wouldn't have been caught this way. Your sensei needs to help you to brush up on your skills.
