is 700 billion a Fibonacci number?

everywhere I turn it's the same number. no matter where the negotiations lead, it's the same number. has this been explained? did I miss it?

I got held up in Amsterdam once. the dude pointed a gun at me (was it real??) and demanded '25 gilders right now.' I told him no. he told me I had till the count of three. alright, so I pull out a fold of bills, musta been 300 gilders or so in the stack, peel off a 25 gilder note (yeah those were cool), hand it to the assailant and put the rest of the cash back in my pocket. then the guy says, 'wait, gimmie 25 more!' I gave him the finger and yelled 'fuck you' really loud and walked off.
