   the numbers are:  2  6  5  25

   more math:  6! / 5! = cuberoot(25 + 2)!

   more math:  25 % 2 + 5 = 6

   rsPhiEval:  ((6 - 5) + sqrt(sqrt(25))) / 2 = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsStateEval:  25 + (6! / 5! / 2)! = 31
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   rsStateEval:  6^2 - 25 / 5 = 31
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   * 140 is the maximum length of a Twitter posting (tweet).

   BARSfunc rsPiEval:  (25 - defactorial(6)) / (5 + 2) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
   * defactorial(n)=m is the inverse of factorial(m)=n
   * defactorial(6)=3 because factorial(3)=6

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  6 * 5 + 25 - 2 = 54-1
   * RoadHacker was 54 years young when he found these signs.
