This road sign is on US Hwy-101 in Oregon.

The road sign says...

   +---------------------+
   | <- Cape Meares    2 |
   | <- Tillamook      8 |
   ------------------------
   | Oceanside      2 -> |
   | Netarts        4 -> |
   +---------------------+
   the numbers are:  2  8  2  4

   the math is:  2 + 2 + 4 = 8

   more math:  8 / 2 / 2 = sqrt(4)

   more math:  cuberoot(8)^2 - 2 = sqrt(4)

   rsStateEval:  4! + 8 + 2 / 2 = 33
   * Oregon was the 33rd state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc rsTweetLenEval:  summation(2, 8) * 2 * sqrt(4) = 140
   * 140 is the maximum length of a Twitter posting (tweet).
   * summation(2, 8) = 2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 35

   BARSfunc math:  2^sqrt(summation(2, 4)) = 8
   * summation(2, 4) = 2+3+4 = 9; sqrt(9) = 3

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  4! * 2 + 8 - 2 = 53+1
   * RoadHacker was 53 years young when he found this road sign.

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  4! * 2 + 8 / 2 = 53-1
