BARS::800 W. 16th St. and 1600 S. Hardy Dr. in Tempe, Arizona

These street signs are at 800 W. 16th St. and 1600 S. Hardy Dr. in Tempe, Arizona.

The street signs say...

   +-----------------------+
   | W 16th St      800 -> |
   -------------------------
   | S Hardy Dr   <-- 1600 |
   +-----------------------+
   the numbers are:  16  800  1600

   the math is:  1600 / 800 = sqrt(sqrt(16))

   observe...
      sqrt(16) = 4
      sqrt(4) = 2

MathBabbler had driven past these street signs at least a hundred times before he finally got around to creating this BARS. To celebrate the moment, he created this YouTube video clip.
