I do not think it means what you think it means

Over on my Chronicles of Alsea blog, I’ve begun a new series called “Writing Whoops” in which I choose an erroneous writing trope and pick it apart. The inaugural trope is the gun with a silencer—which, as we all know from zillions of spy movies, makes a gunshot almost impossible to hear.

Except it doesn’t. For the fun facts on silencers and what they really do, check out the blog post and prepare to be one of those people. You know, the ones who ruin movies with truth and science.

(Yes, the title of this post is from The Princess Bride.)

About Fletcher DeLancey

Socialist heathen and Mac-using author of the Chronicles of Alsea, who enjoys pondering science, politics, well-honed satire (though sarcastic humor can work, too) and all things geeky.
