  • Steve Jobs Tried to Bring Ninja Stars Onto Plane: Report

    [UPDATE: the geniuses at NMA.tv have created a highly informative video simulation of the event, added below]

    Steve Jobs is known for his temper, but apparently he's sometimes armed and dangerous as well. According to a report in a Japanese tabloid, airport officials told Jobs he couldn't bring the ninja throwing stars he had in his bag through the security checkpoint. The incensed CEO supposedly threw the shuriken in the garbage and told the security officers that he'll never visit Japan again. An Apple spokesman says that "the incidents described at the airport are pure fiction," adding that Jobs "hopes to visit Japan again soon."

    SPA!, a weekly magazine with a history of publishing controversial stories and manga, claims that security at Kansai International Airport near Osaka, had detected the weapons inside Jobs's carry-on bag in July as he was returning home to the U.S. from a family vacation in Kyoto. Citing unidentified sources at the airport and the transportation ministry, the story goes that Jobs blew up at security officials, complaining that he was going home via private jet, and that it would make no sense for him to try and hijack his own plane. However, the argument made no difference to the security, who are responsible for making sure that no weapons go into the secure area. For all they knew, it could have been a fake Steve Jobs, planning an attack. Eventually, Jobs threw the stars away while security watched, and groused that this was his last trip to japan.

    According to Bloomberg, a spokesman at Kansai Airport did confirm that a passenger had indeed attempted to board a private plane in July and had been stopped for having shuriken in his baggage. The spokesperson would not identify the traveler, citing the airport's privacy policy. An Apple spokesman told the Wall Street Journal's John Paczkowski that "Steve did visit Japan this summer for a vacation in Kyoto, but the incidents described at the airport are pure fiction. Steve had a great time and hopes to visit Japan again soon.”

      These funny rumors are the stuff of legend. 2000 years from now, when the "Order of the Core" controls the puppet regimes in half of Asia, Steve Jobs will be seen as some sort of phantom warrior demigod that stalked the Earth and could control technology with his mind, along with his trusted concubine Lady GaGa, and their arch nemesis: The Beatles. Who knows how pop culture will be interpreted then

      Tabloid newspaper report. Must be true. Not. Unless he's been watching Kill Bill too many times.

      This is bogus. He would have had them officially checked in. Pure bogus speculation
