July 30: Black holes

As I was driving home, the NPR announcer was saying, "Black holes suck up a LOT." Cue the  astronomer: "Black holes are the Las Vegas of the universe--what happens in a black hole stays in a black hole." An analogy about eating a lot and then burping followed. Who says deep space science isn't accessible to the average person?

My personal response: after I stopped laughing, this news blurb not only made me feel really hungry, but also now the song "Hotel California" is replaying on an infinite loop in my head...

Thinking of black holes,
I find myself wondering
what's on for supper.
