have they checked behind the dryer?

Those that did never returned

I don't know, but it makes for a kickass science barbeque.

From our time frame, it never really finishes falling in, so it seems that the question is meaningless for us.

It ends up in an alternate universe with a negative color scheme.   I thought everyone knew that.

It's turned into socks.   Socks with goatees.   Unless the sock originally had a goatee, then it just turns out to be a normal sock.

But if a spork is an evil fork, is a spock an evil sock?

No, it's a Vulcan. And I believe the gender is male.

My guess is there's nothing to guess. The answer to what's outside the known universe is nothing. My guess what's inside a blackhole is exactly the same. Physics no longer applies.

I thought that was a majority of the case.

I also believe once it does fall in it just adds to the internal mass.

And don't black holes also radiate energy from objects falling into it? I believe that is where some of the energy/matter goes.

But one of my socks always disappears in the dryer.

//Dude so my dryer is a black hole?

There is no 'nothing'.  Zero is a fraud, contrived by the Islamic extremist group Al Gebra, to make Western Europe's math and science less precise.

Decent people shouldn't think about it too much.

The tiny bits of radiation that escapes a black hole contains information

They does?

That's pretty much my theory.  The tiniest indivisible bit of matter is a fold in space time(born inevitably from the chaotic soup that is nothing[disclaimer: a small sample of a void is not "nothing" but a gap between which energy can still traverse]).

This can only be unfolded/unraveled by insane amounts of pressure.  Once a physical collection gets big enough, it collapses a fold and a black hole is born, unraveling/unfolding that which is near it.  This is why some black holes simply dissipate and some explode(or rather, implode, iirc on how black holes can end their cycle).

Seeing the universe has a fetish for fractals, I say its turtles, made of more turtles, all the way down.

it's kinda like what happens to a "donotreply@" email when responding to a help desk ticket trying to find out what happened to your encrypted profile went to an ingestion server in Asia and their help desk can't find it either.

Hawking Radiation.

We're inside a black hole right now and everything's already been decided.

That's as accurate (IFAIK) as it is convenient.

Hey. I like that idea. Gives me something new to think about.

Thanks.

Not a problem.  Was my new thing to think about for a while.

That was as simple as I could make it sound for a quick fark post.  EIP if you have any questions or want to bounce an idea/modification/whatever pertaining to it, though I'm certainly not an expert.  I just deal in concepts, half the time just to get to sleep.
