Go back to your FORTRAN coding grandpa.

Any time you save by not typing out types is more than made up hunting bugs that would trigger compile-time errors in any good language.

Case in point: When did you last reuse code? How many JavaScript libraries have you made? When you start a new webpage, how much time do you spend writing code you've already written before? When was the last time you got to debug an exception that happened on a customer's machine or step through your code?

I'll stick with my FORTRAN. It's got way better features than your JavaScript does.
