I'm taking general relativity and I understand how things work mathematically, but I'm trying to find ways of describing black holes to a general audience.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Would it be fair to say that inside a black hole, space is curved in such a way that all possible paths lead to the singularity? Or, put another way, no matter what direction you try to move in the black hole you will always be moving toward the singularity and hence you can not avoid colliding with it.

I know its difficult to put these sort of things in to words but I'm just looking for something the average joe who doesn't understand physics can appreciate. Does the above sound reasonable?
