Oh, no, no, no, no!

Python's version is worse: you don't need to declare the variable using "var", or "Dim", or anything - just pick a name and assign a value. So if you misspell it ... that's a new variable.
Just like FORTRAN was back in the day (1977). And that caused a probe to miss the planet Venus completely, so what it does in a banking app, or a Boeing 737 Max is not something you want to think about too hard, really.

Strongly typed variables should be mandatory in all languages used in the 21st century!
