   +----------------------+
   | N 100   5th St   100 |
   +----------------------+

   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsAgeEval:  100 / log(100) + 5 - log(500 + 500) = 52

   more math:  log(100) + log(100) + 500 / 500 = 5

   more math:  log(500 + 500) + log(sqrt(100)) + log(sqrt(100)) = 5
