As requested by Socks, the goal of this contest is to optimize a program as much as possible. The optimizations can either be for speed or size (or both), with that decision left up to the person who posted the program. Once everybody feels that a program can't be optimized any further, somebody can post a new program. When posting a program, please remember to change all of the TI-Basic tokens that don't display correctly to Unicode or something recognizable (see characters for a list of characters).

I'll start us off with a *very* unoptimized program, and the goal is to optimize for size.
