Your money is tied up for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 2 years or however long the maturity is of the bond you buy. Normally the longer the maturity, the more interest you get, but we're in an anomalous period where the 6 months T-bill is currently paying the most interest of all.

"What about the tower, sire?"

"Ugh, do we have to? I guess you can name it after my bitch daughter."

Sounds like this was due to people being idiots, but that may be just a cover story.
