I don't understand black holes. They scare the **** out of me.

WELL LET ME EXPLAIN THE TO YOU WHETHER YOU WANT ME TO OR NOT   
   
Basically, a black hole is the result of a star collapsing in on itself. When a star, a very LARGE star, runs out of elements that it can use for nuclear fusion the elements all come rushing back into the center of the star. Basically it's gravity and nuclear explosions having a tug-of-war contest for 10 billion years and eventually the nuclear explosions get tired and gravity wins. The materials then get compressed and squeezed into the middle of the star, where they get so dense that they form a singularity. Meanwhile, the rest of the star violently shoots off. This is known as a "supernova"   
   
Now for how black holes work. First of all, black holes aren't really as scary as people think they are. For instance, if there was a black hole the same mass as our sun, we would orbit around it the same way we would our sun. Black holes aren't above all the laws of physics and stuff. Black holes are essentially an area of space that is so dense (known as singularities) that even though they're rather small, they still have a very large gravitational pull. Some more than others. The reason some black holes appear bigger is because they are more dense, and therefore have a larger event horizon. The event horizon is basically the point of no return. Once you pass it, it is impossible to escape. In fact, if you tried to escape, the gravity of the black hole would actually affect the time it takes to get there. This would actually accelerate you even faster towards the singularity. Singularities are kind of strange though, there are theories behind them but nobody is quite sure how they work  as far as i'm aware . I'd give you the theory i follow but i'm out of room.

Amazing, they were really lucky to have a camera there to catch that. Once in a lifetime shot.

that's the power of the black man, notice how you don't get no White Holes.. only BLACK holes.

What would happen if two dark holes got close to one another, would it rupture the very universe asunder?

Or would it be a lame collision with the same maximum intensity as observing a potato clumsily roll off a table and loose another chromosome in the process

the larger black hole would absorb the smaller black hole.

or, more accurately, the more massive black hole would absorb the less massive black hole.

black holes aren't as weird as you think they are; they're just the result of too much mass in one place, caused by the supernova of a supermassive blue giant star. they're just big balls of matter.

This is so fake becuz stars have five points and arent a circle. You can tell its a photoshop as there are some pixels out of place and I've seen a few photoshops in my deay

Too tiny to be a black hole....and too close to a star to be "eating" it like that.

A black hole can be any size, and its event horizon can be any size (depending on the mass).

Black holes are such greedy *************

Lemme just have this star
It's eating it almost shyly, like 'oh just one bit... mm, alright one more'
