Which is the reason why when you hear about how the federal government has paid rent on a space they haven't occupied in fifteen years to the tune of $16 million dollars its meaningless. I would bet anything this is just more corruption where some Senator or Congressman's buddy owns the property.

The federal government could just as well say 292 gazillion and it means as much.
