My boss and I were discussing his latest grant proposal and which mechanism would be more suitable. We start discussing more exploratory mechanisms and he begins to explain the difference from the typical research grants (R01s) that we apply for. I explain that I know what the R21 mechanism is and how it differs from the R01. The boss looks befuddled and asks how do I know this.
I'm at a crossroads here dear reader, I can tell the man that I have religiously read Gospel of DM & CPP for the past couple of years or come up with something on the fly. My answer, "Oh, they told us about it in a grant writing seminar."
I kneel before thee sir dudes for I am not worthy.
