Earlier today I thought of a way to describe a Black Hole. To describe it think of it as a drain and of space/time as water. It bends water to it and if you lay out a strand of thread (representing a beam of light) over it, the hair will bend to it, which is what a black hole does. When the thread goes through, it can't get out, which is what a black hole does.

PS: A black hole isn't a hole as a drain is, thats just my representation
PPS: A black hole a small object with a incredibly high mass

if there is even such a thing as a black hole, but then that would mean you'd have to believe the MSM theory. I, myself, follow the electric universe model.

If you think a black hole is a big drain, check this out:

Galaxy flow hints at huge masses over cosmic horizon

It appears that there's a hole in our universe either draining matter out of it, or there's a huge mass outside of the visible universe attracting things towards it.

This beyond huge when compared to your basic black hole.

I like your comparison and I think it does the job as to explain basically the way a black works.

Good little post.

Oh yeah another thing: A Black Hole isn't actually a hole, its just its escape velocity (the speed you need to get out of its gravitational pull) is higher than the speed of light making it black, since light won't reflect.
