Why use strict?

 Why use strict?

I'm trying to convince a friend that using the 'use strict' directive is
a good idea. It forces the coder to scope variables to a specific block
making debugging easier and warning of unsafe variable declarations.

Both are good things and enough for me to adopt the practice.

What are some other good reasons I can use in my argument?
