    I suppose it is referring to the intersection's four corners.

      Oh dear, it's flawed. Stop signs have 8 corners. Or were you referring to
    the four corners of the square root? JimA

    You are a Seminary student. Suppose you're travelling to work and
    you see a
    stop sign. What do you do? That depends on how you exegete the stop sign.

    1. A postmodernist deconstructs the sign (knocks it over with his car),
    ending forever the tyranny of the north-south traffic over the east-west

    2. Similarly, a Marxist sees a stop sign as an instrument of
    class conflict.
    He concludes that the bourgeoisie use the north-south road and
    obstruct the
    progress of the workers on the east-west road.

       14. A "prophetic" preacher notices that the square root of the sum of
    the numeric representations of the letters S-T-O-P (sigma-tau-omicron-pi in
    Greek), multiplied by 40 (the number of testing), and divided by 4 (the four
    corners) equals 666, the dreaded "mark of the beast." All STOPS are
    therefore satanic.
