Ah - I've found the equation. Here it is:
R = (2GM)/(c^2)

where R = Schwarzchild Radius
G = Gravitational constant
M = Mass
c = speed of light

Let's see... I am 61.235 kg
G = 6.67 x 10^-11 (hehe i forgot the units for G)
c = 3 x 10^8 m/s

R = (2 x 6.67x10^-11 x 61.235)/(c^2)

R = 9.09 x 10^-26 m

So if I were a black hole, that would be where my event horizon is. hehe pretty small, eh?
