By coincidence I wrote about Excel (and related spreadsheets) as
functional languages just recently . It was prompted by an article
in the BMJ where a spreadsheet cell was accidentally overwritten by
patient data, meaning a small child was given their weight as a drug
quantity, rather than the quantity being calculated from their weight.
