Steve Jobs Never Wants to Visit Japan Again after Ninja Weapon Airport Incident
Uh oh! Today, Japanese magazine Spa! reported that back in July, Apple CEO Steve Jobs attempted to board his private plane at Kansai International Airport in Osaka for a return to the United States after a family vacation in Kyoto. All was well until...airport security discovered ninja throwing stars in Jobs' luggage, and would not allow him to take them home...yes, even aboard his private plane.
As a result of this ruling, Jobs allegedly declared that he'd "never visit Japan again," which is a tall statement coming from the head of the world's most influential technology companies. Spa! notes that Jobs "said it wouldn’t make sense for a person to try to hijack his own plane," which is totally true, but still. Throwing stars are legally weapons. A report was filed on the incident and Apple declines to comment.
Do you think Jobs should have been able to bring the throwing stars onboard his private plane or was the airport right in denying them? Tell us in the comments!.
