Wow, you guys are so funny with all the "holding it wrong" comments.

You should all try out for Last Comic Standing - you'll go far I'm sure.

Not really an Apple fanboy (holding it wrong gags still crack me up) but I agree with Steve on this one. He's unlikely to try to use shuriken to hijack a plane he just rented. What's he going to do, order the pilot to fly to some destination he wants to go to? If all he wanted to do was crash the plane then he'd just have to turn on his mobile, the FAA reckon they're too dangerous to use.

WTF. Other news sites ran this "story" 5 days ago. Why blows my mind is why anyone cares what this idiot does in the first place.

The thing is, it's not about fear of him trying to hijack his own plane or anything like that. It's that it is about legalities. The law is the freaking law. Just because it's your own private jet, doesn't mean you can smuggle weapons on board (or drugs,immigrants,etc). What this just means is that Steve Jobs is NOT above the law, despite what he and others may think.

It's not illegal to put this stuff in your luggage that goes in the cargo section, why wouldn't he just do that? You don't need to carry a freaking ninja star in your carry-on bag. Since it was his own private jet I'm sure he could have held it up long enough to put that crap in the cargo section.

Anyway, I do agree that the law should be applied to you even if it is your own private jet. Who is to say a terrorist couldn't bring those aboard his own private jet, hijack it and crash it into a building?

@soulfringe "The law is the freaking law"
yeah like the law against spiting on sidewalks or parking your donkey on the road , some laws are retarded and common sense should prevail . reminds me of zero tolerance and 2nd graders getting suspended from school for a toy army man or a aspirin or some other stupid reason.

[citation][nom]bhamx2[/nom]This guy is just a complete idiot ....[/citation]
Because someone wrote an obviously fake story about him? Yes... such an idiot. And even if it is somehow true that he wasn't allowed to bring ninja stars on his OWN private jet, then I'd have to side with him and whoever wouldn't let him board is an idiot. Case closed.

In the photo Steve is demonstrating his simultaneous overarm and under-leg star-throwing technique.
