answer if u can...this post is really long...BUT I NEED HELP!!!!!

ok.........its just like what CL said....if everythin goes into the black hole...then how does the gravitons escape and suck things in??

ya know...bladesinger said...if a black hole was sucking things downwards...no work is done due to the invariancy of the y-value...what if the blackhole was sucking things sideways in?

talking about einstein's spacetime...the whole universe is like a rubber sheet...with heavier matter bending the spacetime around it...so if this is what spacetime is...then does a blackhole look like this:

--------------HOLE HERE-------------------

or does it look like this:

------ HOLE ---------------
\ Funneling /
\ Downwards /
\ /
\ /
\ /
\ /
\ /
\ /
\ /
\ /
\ /
\ /

the dotted lines represent spacetime....which is the way that blackholes bend spacetime? the funnel way(large on top, gradually narrowing down) or the pipe way(straight down all the way)?

if blackholes bend spacetime in the first way(pipe), then things are being sucked in...if its the second way(funnel)...then are things falling in or are things being sucked in?

what i think is that its falling in...since nothin can escape the gravity pull...when things fall in...they create somewhat a thrust behind them to pull following objects downwards...but yet when they go down...they also produce a force which goes the other way(like when a car is going at high speed to the right...the air is pushed to the left)...so how the hell does things go into a black hole?

if the gravity really destroyed the star itself...it should be working like...clunching a small metal ball in ur palm...isnt it?

SO SOMEONE HELP!!!!!
I CANT BREATH!!!!
