A black hole isn't "evil", but ...

I loved this quote from Paul Ramsey, commenting on Paul Bisset's blog post about the "Google data earthquake":
Right, a black hole isn’t “evil”, but that doesn’t change the fact that it massively distorts the shape of space-time everywhere it goes, which can be a bummer for any object in its immediate neighbourhood.
That summarizes rather nicely concerns I've expressed in recent posts.

i thought that was a great quote too. Paul's article was spot on as well, we've got a potential "adapt or die" future ahead of us
