the other one was that it just rips hrough space-time and actually only takes up the space of a pin point because in some ways it isnt even part of our universe. : if anyone knows which is the right one, or if its a different one, please let me know

FWIW, I am reading a book called Hyperspace by Michio Kaku (co-founder of string theory) that proposes just this scenario. Kaku claims space time is actually 10 dimensional and a lot of the "problems" with General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics are solved if you use 10 dimensions. As a result, Black Holes can form bridges into other "dimensions", Einstein-Rosen bridges IIRC.

Kip Thorne in "Black Holes and Time Warps, Einsteins outrageous legacy" also favours this solution as well.

This is not to say it is the answer, just that some people are looking at it and proposing novel solutions.
