: black holes are big!

No they are not. They are massive, many times the mass of the sun, but only about a Kilometer in diameter. The singularity, if it exists, occupies zero volume. Compare that to a Red Giant that is many thousands of millions of kilometers in diameter or a Galaxy that is billions of billions of billions of kilometers in diameter.
