Good points both...and as I said, cutting off the air intake is an emergency measure....
Yes but it is now important to mention. DO NOT USE YOUR HAND TO STOP AIR FLOW TO THE ENGINE! Doing so could result in a loss of part of your hand as this is a very powerful suction.
Should also point out that an engine can keep running with the fuel shut off under fault certain conditions. It will run on the engine crankcase oil around the rings if someone put too much oil in the crankcase or in some cases if the engine gets super over heated. In which case the only way to stop it is to plug the intake.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
