That is not junk but program instructions transformed into numeric values! The process is reversible. If you change the memory partition between writing and reading a card, programs can be turned into numbers and vice versa.

I remember that back in my Ti59 days (1978 to 1985 or so) people came up with, and published!, clever ways to make self modifying code on the Ti59 by having their program change some stored numbers, writing them on a card and reading them back in as program statements. That can all be programmed, the user only has to slide the card into the calculator when prompted. Maybe I still have the magazine article in some box that got never opened after our last relocation (22 years ago) but I am pretty much certain that I will never find it again...
