I think it is about time to get back to somethng serious on this list.

5*X^2 - 50 * X + 125 = 0     X = 5, 8

How many fingers does a Martian have?

Well he's in another reference frame so yah gotta account for sqrt(-1)

Maybe we could come up with some type of PIC driven spaceship,
that would allow us to travel through space at such a high
speed that we would, within our own life time, be able to visit
all the planets, and find a Martian (or other alien, I suppose)

Faster acceleration clearly isn't going to get us there.  Even if we
got as fast as the speed of light it would take 27 (I believe?) light
years to get to the nearest galaxy. So we'd only have time to visit
one, or maybe two galaxies in our lives. We need something faster. We
need to bend space into the fourth dimension, to decrease the distance
between here and there. (Like they talked about in flatland.)

If we try hard, I think we can do it. Anyone up for it?

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh; i've got a  pic-driven simulation  4 that !

This sounds like your regular
sunday-afternoon-I-haven't-got-anything-better-to-do
programming job.

I already did that.  I got the warp routine to fit into 1K code space.
Didn't have enough I/O though.  I had to use Maxims I2C Singularity
controller.  Worked great only there isn't anything out there to visit.
