containing more than a billion solar masses

Some might say that is big...

The power required ... exceeded the power output of the Sun by nearly ten trillion times in the past 100 million years

That could light a few homes.

So, black holes... I think we are all doomed. eventually. I mean one that big isn't going to evaporate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawking_Radiation) any time soon.

So I reckon the whole universe will get sucked into one of them.

Not in out lifetime. I would think that because of the slow pace the universe in the end is sucked into the black holes, we would be quite scorched way before our clash with one of those unless it would just pop up right next to us

When I said all doomed, I didn't really mean us. I meant the universe in general. And obviously not in out lifetime.

Enough power to dial a Stargate from another galaxy and maintain that connection indefinitely!

*runs* Enough power to dial a Stargate to all the galaxies in the visible universe. :)
Or another universe maybe.
Hmm!

Or another universe maybe.

That wouldn't be a good idea, You might find you have an evil counterpart in that parallel universe. That would be a cliché, and you know how I feel about those...

must... stop... with the... SG-1... Jokes...

Huh, some supernovas form black holes. Think how large that explosion could've been.

Gawd, getting sucked into this (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/cd/Black_Hole_Milkyway.jpg) seems depressing.

Hell, we're all going to die a horrible death. What with a higher chance of dying of cancer than senieroity (w/e), then death by black hole sounds exciting :D

and sounds really wrong...

The explosion may not have been that big, just a long time ago, it could have sucked an entire galaxy of stars in since then.

Maybe in billions of years the one in the centre of our galaxy may be that big.

That reminds me of the science screen-saver I used to have.

Getting sucked into a very bad photoshopped image hosted by Wikimedia? Yes, very depressing indeed.

Congratulations, you made me want to kill my self so I don't have to see that any more.

I am so glad I read /. and knew what edlib's post was referring to without actually having to ever see it.

I think we all remember the traumatic first time we unfortunately saw goatse.

*shudders*

Even with all the sick twisted s*** I've seen on 4/7chan, goatse still gives me nightmares ;_;

Black holes indeed...

Yeah,.. back in the early, wild-west days of the web, about half the links you would click on in a thread like this all went directly to a full screen image of goatse.

You just leaned to expect it after a while.

When someone posts in a thread like this about "black holes" and says something like "click on this image!" I still get worried to this day. Too much of a setup...

I cannot believe that so many people have not yet witnessed the horror that is goatse...

The pain of it when it when it comes straight at you, the first time, is absolutely priceless.

Those lucky bastards should be forced to look at the horrors of goatse for two hours straight... Ugh... I'm feeling sick even without seeing the picture. The horrors... *whimper*

Oh yeah goatse. Nowadays I get positively surprised if someone links an unsuspecting goatse link in IRC.

getting back on the black holes thing...

Black holes aren't that much of a danger to the universe itself. It is and will continue expanding. Black Holes still have the same mass as when they were suns, just super-compacted and virtually invisible. The danger in black holes is in space travel, where you have to detect them without getting too close. Otherwise you get to a point where the escape velocity is greater than your vessel's capabilities.
