BARS::US Hwy-2 and ME Hwy-100 in Bangor, Maine

These highways signs were found on US Hwy-2/ME Hwy-100 in Bangor, ME.

The highway signs say...

   +---------+ +-------+
   |  SOUTH  | | WEST  |
   |  Maine  | |  US   |
   | Hwy-100 | | Hwy-2 |
   +---------+ +-------+
   the numbers are:  2  100

   the math is:  log(100) = 2

   observe...
      log(n) defaults to base-10; therefore,
      log(100) = 2 because 10^2 equals 100

   more math:  sqrt(100base-2) = 2

   observe...
      100 in binary (base-2) is 4
      sqrt(4) = 2

   observe...
      2 is a prime number and 100 is a square number
      100 / 2 equals 50 (RoadHacker's age when he 
                         found these highway signs)
