I felt, in case someone was writing about a kidnapping and was going to add the obligatory duct tape-over-mouth part, that they should know the reality of said tape. For those who like to be as realistic as possible: duct tape over a person's mouth is ineffective.
I just read a book about super strong immortal getting kidnapped and the kidnapper put a strip of duct tape over his mouth to keep him quiet. Don't ask me how I know this.
Discussions about the writing craft. But what am I going to wear on my foot?
You are just giving them a chance to activate that special spy gadget they obtained in the first scene. Source: Got a piece stuck on my beard just last weekend, it's virtually impossible to pull off whithout contemplating suicice as the less painful alternative.
The movies lie. Created Jan 25, Top posts june 28th Top posts of june, Top posts Back to Top. Umm, Pat Grey tried to do what they did in the commercials, didn't work out so well. You need to shove something in the mouth, such as a sock, and then wrap duct tape multiple times around the head to ensure they can't easily work it loose.
Found the internet! Continue this thread. You are reminding me of that evil overlord list thing that used to be around.
Try it. Sort by: best.

Dang it, there goes my cliffhanger. Don't believe me?
Still works on bearded guys though, believe me. Wrapping gaffer tape around the head several times to cover the mouth may prove more effective. Wrapping it around the head works though.
For extra points, use a sock you've been wearing all day. The movies would have you think it takes mere seconds to knock someone out with a rag soaked in chloroform, when in reality it takes 5 or more minutes.
Just to throw out a suggestion since it is true that duct tape is terrible for keeping a mouth shut. Don't forget about chloroform.
It's sticky, but not THAT sticky. More posts from the writing community.
