   the numbers are:  1  4  5  2  12  19  50

   the math is:  (19 - 12) * (5 + 4 - 2) + 1 = 50

   rsAgeEval:  (50 + 1) * ((19 - 12) / (5 + 4 - 2) = 51
   * RoadHacker was 51 years young when he found this sign.

   rs42Eval:  50 - (12 + 19 - (4 * 5) - 2 - 1) = 42
   * the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsPiEval:  (50 - 19 - 4 - 5) / (12 / 2 + 1) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14)

   rsPhiEval:  (1 + sqrt(5)) / (sqrt(50 / 2) + 4 - 19 + 12) = Phi 
   * (1 + sqrt(5))/2 = Phi = 1.61803399  (golden ratio)
