Is a black hole a hole? What I mean by that, the word hole implies a structure that is shall we say like a plug hole in a sink. But a B/H is the result of an imploding star so surely it would be spherical. So really we are talking about black spheres which make much more sense in my head, also it rules out them being a 'gateway' to somewhere else. As matter would be coming in from all direction not only on a plane that the word hole implies. But, that word again, it would imply that it can be filled up, could we assume that Hawkings 'evaporation' would take care of that? Now shoot me down in flames!!!!!
