Apple CEO Steve Jobs was blocked from bringing Ninja throwing stars onto his private jet in Japan in July. Apparently the throwing stars were found in his luggage at a security checkpoint as he was heading home from a family vacation, according to Bloomberg.
Japanese security officials confiscated the throwing stars, also known as shuriken, and threw them away because the airport doesn’t distinguish between private and commercial airline passengers.
Mr. Jobs attempted to persuade officials to let him keep the stars by saying it wouldn’t make any sense to hijack his own plane, but the agents weren’t buying into his argument.
Presumably Mr. Jobs has now failed one of the first tests of Ninja school: don’t get caught.
