BARS::2 Miles From San Jose on US Hwy-136 in Illinois

This road sign is on eastbound US Hwy-136 in Illinois.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------+
   | San Jose      2 |
   | McLean       25 |
   +-----------------+
   | East US Hwy-136 |
   +-----------------+
   the numbers are:  2  25  136

   the math is:  sqrt(sqrt(136 - sqrt(25)!)) = 2

   BARSfunc math:  25 - spf(136) = 2
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain: n must be a composite number
   * 136 is composite; spf(136) = 2+2+17 = 23

   off-by-one rs42Eval:  136 / 2 - 25 = 42+1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
