   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  16  2  4

   the math is:  4^2 = 16

   more math:  2^4 = 16

   more math:  4 / 2 = sqrt(sqrt(16))

   more math:  cuberoot(sqrt(16 * 4)) = 2

   more math:  sqrt(cuberoot(16 * 4)) = 2

   more math:  log2(16) = 4

   more math:  log4(16) = 2

   rs42Eval:  16 + 2 + 4! = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsCardinalityEval: (2 + 4) / sqrt(sqrt(16)) = 3
   * There are three numbers is this road sign.

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  16 * 2 - sqrt(4) = 31-1
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  16 * 4 / 2 = 31+1
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   * RoadHacker was 55 years young when he found this road sign.

   off-by-one rsMaxTweetLenEval: summation(2, 16) + 4 = 140-1
   * Maximum length of a Twitter Tweet is 140 characters.

   off-by-one rs37Eval: 16 * 2 + 4 = 37-1
   * There was no official rs37Eval when this BARS was created;
   * however, MathBabbler was considering adding it.
   * Why add rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   BARSfunc math:  2 * 4 = spf(16)
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(16) = 2+2+2+2 = 8
