   +------+ +-------+
   |  To  | |  Jct  |
   | I 76 | | CO 71 |

   the numbers are:  76  71  12  6  2

   the math is:  sqrt(76 - 71) / 2 + (6 / 12) = Phi

   observe...
      Phi = 1.61803399
      Phi = (1 + sqrt(5)) / 2

   [solve for 'n] sqrt(76 - 71) / 2 + (n / 12) = Phi

   ... the remaining math was added on 2008.10.25...

   more math:  sqrt(76 + 71 - 6/2) = 12

   fooish rs42Eval:  sqrt(((76 - 71) * 6 + 12)^2) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   more math:  6! / (76 - 71)! * 2 = 12
