News is currently spreading that Steve Jobs (or someone dressed just like him) was held at Japan’s Kansai International Airport in July on his trip back to the U.S. for having ninja throwing stars in his luggage. Unfortunately Steve's reality distortion field couldn't save him as he reportedly told authorities that it wouldn't make sense to hijack his own plane.
We do have our own suspicions about Steve though. Come on, he wears a black turtle neck and carries around throwing stars? Steve Jobs has to be a ninja. There's no question about it. Whether he's practicing for a battle with Microsoft, or he just wants to protect himself, you've got to give him props. But, Steve, next time make some Paper Ninja stars instead--they're a lot more practical for air travel, and don't upset security as much.
However, our awesome ninja-like suspicions were crushed when All Things D received a statement from Apple stating, "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."
Oh well, there's always hope that one day Steve will join the Mac|Life Ninja Stars Throwing Club (which by the way, Robbie, meets tomorrow at 5 pm, so don't be late this time).
