   BARSfunc rsAgeEval:  5 * 7 + spf(34) = 54
   * RoadHacker was 54 years young when he found this road sign.
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain: n must be a composite number
   * spf(34) = 2+17 = 19

   BARSfunc off-by-one rs42Eval:  spf(5 + 7) + 34 = 42-1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * spf(5 + 7) = spf(12) = 2+2+3 - 7
