BARS::6 Miles From Needles in California (on Pi Day 2010)

This road sign is on northbound US Hwy-95 in California.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------------+
   | Needles             6 |
   | Topock              9 |
   | Kingman            58 |
   +-----------------------+
   the numbers are:  6  9  58

   rs42Eval:  sqrt(58 - 9) * 6 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsAgeEval: 58 - (9 - 6)! = 52
   * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found this road sign.

   off-by-one math:  sqrt(58 - 9) = 6+1

   BARSfunc rsStateEval:  58 - (9 * defactorial(6)) = 31
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.
   * defactorial(6) = 3 because 3! = 6
