Remove taped paper without tearing it

This is one of the best things I've learned so far this year.

I first saw it on reddit and was sure there was some trick involved besides stretching the tape before attempting to remove it.

There isn't — but keep the following in mind:

1) You have to really stretch the tape, pulling hard on both ends, before removing it

2) You'll get the best possible result by removing the tape very slowly

3) It won't work with easy-tear clear tape, which won't stretch: you have to use the original that requires help from a scissors or blade to cut it

But hey, if a TapeDolt©® like me can do it, anyone can — even you!

If you're not satisfied with the results let me know and I'll refund one million times what you paid for this tip (but not for the tape).

a TapeDolt©® ?
Goodness! You're a Dolt of all trades.

Thanks for the core77 link.
I bookmarked that site years ago, then forgot about it.
Lots of neat stuff.
