As Kent Pitman famously said:

    Please don't assume Lisp is only useful for Animation and Graphics,
    AI, Bioinformatics, B2B and E-Commerce, Data Mining, EDA/Semiconductor
    applications, Expert Systems, Finance, Intelligent Agents, Knowledge
    Management, Mechanical CAD, Modeling and Simulation, Natural Language,
    Optimization, Research, Risk Analysis, Scheduling, Telecom, and Web
    Authoring just because these are the only things they happened to list.
