      Hey Kurzgesagt what would happened if you put a giant star with a mass bigger than a black hole next to that black hole? Will the black hole move or even destroyed? What about using two big black holes to sling shot a smaller one across space, do black holes move?

    Whether black holes are confusing has little or nothing to do with our planet. Of course, anything can happen in the universe. It doesn't make much sense for me to see some people being curious. Quite frankly, I was curious a little after seeing a black hole. We never have seen a black hole in real life. Even though Black holes exist, they are strange enough. I don't need to see some irrelevant opinions about what is discussed in a video. Anyway, I'll gladly watch the video without being rude. I was only serious due to some ignorance from a person. Once again, I won't complain a lot about the channel, besides how I never watch it. It would be fair to judge a person, if they provide more ignorance. Whether some people will complain about me has little or nothing to do with me. I'm just here giving my opinions about a history video. I never even know another channel called "Kurzigat" existed. I do respect some knowledge about the universe. I was serious here, except I had a good reason to be so. I'd only distract myself by seeing some people. Anyway, the Earth is big, except the universe is bigger. A black hole can cause endless mysteries. I can clearly see a black hole as problematic. The universe seems endless, as far as I'm concerned. The earth seems endless, as far as I'm concerned. Whether or not, aliens are real depending on what proof is gathered about them. If there is proof about aliens already, that's different. It seems interesting that I'm talking. Black holes do exist after all. Even if black holes are dangerous, there is limited knowledge about them. Some people deserve to be ignored, except history represents the past. When I say "the past," I mostly refer to the distant centuries. I do respect the universe, one way or another. I don't have to be bad, except it's good to talk about black holes.

    By the way, the video doesn't look bad, besides some unnecessary opinions. I'll watch that video without focusing on irrelevant opinions about it. It's not my fault some people think they deserve attention here. At the end of the day, I know history matters. I'm not talking about what I say endlessly. I just couldn't care less who gets interested in a black hole. It's pathetic to see some people try to be wise, when they look ignorant. I do try to be wise, just by seeing a history video. Anyway, I'll gladly make sure I don't get disappointed.

    It's almost crazy to think about humanity. It's a matter of seeing the truth about battles, or sieges. I don't want to be concerned with the same problem. It's one thing to be educated, but it's another to know less about nature. There is some truth to ignorance and hatred. I do think it's interesting to learn more about Earth. Anyway, I'm serious with how I speak. Even though some people hardly are aware of humanity, I know humanity. However, I'm not making a whole subject about humanity itself. It would be quite boring to come across some opinions. I'd rather not be confused about what I say. It would be quite boring to argue with some people. It would be boring to argue with some people, due to their ignorance. Anyway, it's quite good to understand the evolution of a human being. I would not be wrong about, how interested I am. I just think it's better to not worry about some people. At the end of the day, alcohol is still a thing. Whether the first humans were different can be debated. That it's interesting to learn a serious fact is clear. However, I was talking about humanity previously. It's quite necessary to understand time. Of course, time is always there. You can have a problem with me, just like I can have a problem with you. Whether we can have problems with each other is debatable. Whether some people can have problems with me is debatable. Whether we had a same problem didn't make me like you. Whether or not, I had the same problem with someone didn't worsen life. There must be a hidden world within our world. There could be a "hidden world" within our world. God bless our lives, unlike how God should punish some people. The invaders tried to take cities, unlike how the defenders tried to defend them. God is powerful, unlike the world he supposedly created for us. I would be happy, unless I'm sad or mad. I would ignore you, unlike how I would ignore some people. I would live my life, unlike suffering from constant hatred. I would ignore you, unlike seeing you once. You probably don't know what you're talking about. Some people probably didn't know what they were talking about. What we've said was limited at times. What some people have said was very limited. I would appreciate food, unlike how some people would appreciate life. I would disrespect you, unlike how you would disrespect me once. I would disrespect some people, unlike how they would disrespect me. We do want food, whenever I do. We do want a salad, which is healthy enough. I do like salad, just like I like healthy food. We would distract each other, one way or another. We did distract each other, one way or another. You would offend me, when really it's unlikely you'll offend me. Some people would offend me, when really they won't offend me.The fact that, it's good to talk about hatred is a contributing factor. It's not bad at all to know one fact about time. It's not relevant at all to see, how nature evolves on this planet. However, I was just talking about nature. Of course, one human has the ability to be more serious. It would be almost crazy for me to get distracted by someone. We can be serious, just by not underestimating a human being. I'd say a human can go far, just by seeing time. Whether time is a constant factor contributes to life. The fact that, it's good to talk about life is a contributing factor. It's almost crazy to think about life.

    If a massive star collapse then it results a black hole, right? Now, my question is that, how do the mass of the black hole is got magnified than the star? I mean, the mass of the black hole should be equal or less than the star until the black hole creat any extra mass. That's how, the black hole should produce same or less extortion in the space-time than its mother star. Yes, the tangent will be higher in Black hole but not the depth.

    I think black holes are materials without space/time... neutrinos are building blocks of space time... as matter lose space, increase mass... dark matter is matter without space as it dissipates/degrades and has extreme gravity, but unable to measure because of no space-time... neutrinos go to dark matter-concentrated edge of universe and is opening space time or expand universe... I guess... black holes are concentrated matter without space time so can be worm hole open to new universe.. demension are different baseline space time parameters...
