in reply to Question on "my" in the variables

The way you phrase your question gives me the impression that you see strict/my primarily as a tool for making things look nicer and easier for humans to read.

It is not.

Its primary purpose is to catch your mistakes before they can cause problems. Some of those mistakes can be quite subtle. Subtle enough that, if your "code that runs perfectly fine" is anything non-trivial, strict is likely to reveal some issues that you simply haven't noticed yet.
