Words of Wisdom for Today: Grant Page Limits Edition

From me.

Remember: page limits are Darwin/Diety of choice's way of telling you how much the reviewers want to read or the funding agencies want to know.  

or in other words:

Do not fuck with margins, font size or page limits

    Isn't it funny how we fudged font sizes, fonts, spacing and margins to make our papers longer in high school, but somewhere at the end of college you start fussing them in the other direction?

    Yup. and we thought we were so subtle - no one could possibly tell!

    And then the first time you TA and you see a stack of 30 papers all together and it's blindingly obvious who has been playing games.
