BARS::Pi Road Sign on Route 66 in Kingman, Arizona

This road sign was found on westbound Route 66 in Kingman, Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------+
   |     Route 66    |
   +-----------------+
   | Oatman       28 |
   | Needles      49 |
   +-----------------+
   the numbers are:  66   28   49

   rsPiEval:  66 / (49 - 28) = Pi (3.14)

   another rsPiEval:  66 / (28 - sqrt(49)) = Pi (3.14)

   rsAgeEval:  668 - 28 / sqrt(49) = 50
   * RoadHacker saw this road sign a 2nd time on his
     last day being 50 years young (27 May 2008).

   observe...
      668 = 6 * 8 + 6 = 54

   rs42Eval:  66 - (28 / sqrt(49))! = 42
