I learned to appreciate static typing when I was writing complex data 
structures in PL/1 in the 1960's -- it didn't have it.  A pointer was a 
pointer, and it would just believe it pointed to whatever you said it 
pointed to when you used it.

A learned to *love* statis typing when  got to use Algol 68 a few years 
later, in the mid 1070's..

It was a long time before I had it available to me again.  
I found it again in Modula 3.
