What would you throw in a black hole?

    If you could throw anything into a black hole, never to be seen again, what would it be?

    I would throw away the "Top Forty" list used to pick the music on the radio. Does anyone really want to listen to the same forty songs every day for a month. Oh wait, it changed hurray they swapped two songs around. Fantastic.....

    Good bye, top forty list.

    Ah on to the "Top Twenty list"

    I would throw in a white hole, and see if it makes a grey hole.

    Ken Kesey - it was that stupid, drug infested, cross country bus tour of his that was eventually responsible for that stupid phrase, "His buddies threw him under the bus."

    I would throw in all the conformists in the world, so all that would be left are the non-conformists, like me.

    Why do you want to throw all the conformists? Just throw their leader, and everyone else would follow him:)

    Sure it looks painful to jump in, but he must have done it for a good reason. Let me find my bathing suit...

    I'd throw in another black hole just for the heck of it, oh and the language "new-Norwegian" ("Nynorsk").

    By the way would the things we threw 'in' actually go in (does this make sense?), I mean from our point of view?

    And is it illegal to say you would throw a person into a black hole?

    I would like to throw all the people from the top ten countries in HDI scores. Recursively - until my country is in the top ten.

    My husband? (joking... maybe)

    My 95 bonneville (bought in vandalized, literally "beat to hell" condition) finally got towed off, or I'd've said that too!

    I'd throw myself in just to see if I would pop out in another dimension or something.

    an equally massive black hole.

    Good answer... I was thinking something along those lines (since I can't REALLY do that to my spouse).
