   rsAgeEval:  sqrt(25)! - 98 + 30 - sqrt(1 + 3) = 50
   * RoadHacker was 50 years young when he found these signs.

   observe...
      sqrt(25) = 5
      5! = 120
      sqrt(1 + 3) = sqrt(4) = 2

   more math:  log(sqrt(30 - 25 - 3 + 98)) = 1
      
   observe...
      30 - 25 - 3 + 98 = 100
      sqrt(100) = 10
      log(10) = 1

   off-by-one math:  (((98 + 1) / 3) - 30)! = sqrt(25) + 1
