New Form of BARS: Road Sign Evaluation (rsEval)

Road Sign Evaluations (rsEvals) were created on 18 March 2006; however, since that time, their usage has evolved. On 30 May 2008, this BAB was modified to define valid rsEvals.

rsEval (road sign evaluation) involves applying arithmetic to the numbers in a road sign and having the result evaluate to a highway sign for which we have a picture to any or all of the following.

   +----------------+
   | Gooland      3 |   
   | Happytown   39 |             
   +----------------+

   rsHwyEval if found on highways numbered 13 (39 / 3), 36 (39 - 3), 
             42 (39 + 3), 117 (3 * 39), and so on

   rsAgeEval if RoadHacker was 42, 45 (39 + 3!), ... years of age 
             when he discovered the sign

   rs42Eval if 3 and 39 can be used in an arithmetic expression 
            such that it evaluates to 42 (e.g. 3 + 39)

   rsDupEval if the 3 is duped such that sqrt(39 - 3) = 3!

A Golden RSeval is a road sign that evaluates to the highway on which it was found. Golden RSevals have been replaced with rsHwyEvals.

The following sign would be a rsPiEval.

   +----------------+
   | Fooville     7 |    
   | Moohaven    22 |             
   +----------------+

   the math is:  22 / 7 = Pi (3.14)

The following sign would be a rsPhiEval.

   +----------------+
   | Foodale      1 |    
   | Gootown      2 |    
   | Mooplains    5 |             
   +----------------+

   the math is:  (1 + sqrt(5)) / 2 = Phi (1.61803399)
