Two things about typhoons every year:

1) The bizarre delusion that a 300 yen umbrella serves any purpose other than as a ruined tangle of sharp metal spokes (see picture above);

2) The irresistible attraction men in their 80s feel towards their own roofs in 90 kmh winds.

Why don't people ever learn?

I just wish this thing was 24 hours earlier, so we could get a day off work.

Why are these Typhoons either on the weekend or at night? Something about this country, even the bad weather makes sure not to be meiwaku for businesses!

Seems the England v France game is already confirmed as being cancelled

Absolute farce. The weather on Sunday for the Scotland game will be like a normal autumn day of Scottish weather!

Have the fans get on the roof of the stadium and the players run around with plastic umbrellas.

A very windy Saturday night predicted for Tokyo.

I’m just blown away, forgive me, that there has been no serious article about this typhoon that isn’t connected to rugby. There will be no rugby. A good part of Japan is going to have flooding, landslides, loss of power, and a huge amount of wind. Get a little serious, will you? What do you think the classification “violent” means?

Still expected to have my daughter's sports day a few hours after it passes. Never cancel, never give up I guess.

You can still play rugby in a typhoon - it works be fun to watch
