Quoth kaz at ashi.footprints.net (Kaz Kylheku):
| Static typing is like having a specialized road for nearly every kind
| of vehicle. Motorcycles go on this type of road, minivans go here,
| large trucks go here, sub-compact sedans here, and so forth. You end
| up with horrible inconveniences; there is way too much pavement
| everywhere, and you can't go wherever you want in a straightforward
| way. To get from point A to point B, you have to do stupidities, like
| changing vehicles several times, wrapping your car inside a truck to
| smuggle it through a trucking road, making several motorcycle trips
| back and forth to get your goods across some point, and so forth.

And you never send your bus into a grocery store by accident.
