: Actually, I disagree with a baseball sized blackhole consuming a planet the size of Jupiter. It takes substantial mass to expand the event horizon of a black hole. If a black hole is stationary in the center of a planet, a stable condition arises where the radius of the black hole is no longer able to 'consume' any mass.

I may be totaly wrong with that analogy.........but a blackhole does have gravity outside of the horizon, no matter how small it is. Neglecting the fact that a blackhole can evaporate, won't all matter eventualy fall in to the hole because a gravity field is present? To me it would seem inevitable that all matter eventualy finds its way to the horizon ESPECIALY since there is no other force repelling it or holding it to something else (i.e. the bonds that exist in solid objects) because Jupiter is gaseous, not solid. If you reason that Jupiter has a solid core, I'd say that The very center is probably liquified anyway due to intense heat built up by the imense pressure exerted by gravity (just like Earth in a sence) Now I'm just mumbling on, but my main point is that with nothing to hold the matter away from the blackhole, what's to keep the finite gravitational force from acting on it?
