Give This Hole a Home!!

The hole in question is a massive Black Hole spotted by the Hubble Telescope, as reported by CNN. (Those of you who thought this post was about something entirely different - Shame on you!!!)

This Hole needs a home!!

This poor, deprived cosmological body has no galaxy of its own to live in, meaning that it cannot, to paraphrase the CNN article, slurp up matter from the galactic center. How can we expect this desperate light-sucking monster, with a massive gravitational pull to feed, to get along without its fair share of matter-slurping? Currently it is just having to live off of space junk, and with Voyager and other Earth deep space probes not due to reach it for at least another 1,000,000,000,000,000 years, this means some seriously lean times inbetween. This hole may have to live on ramen and cat food until then! Where is the outrage, people?!!

Sure, the CNN article describes this particular black hole as a "rogue." However, I'm sure it is just misunderstood and would settle down provided a nice galaxy to live in. It probably wouldn't need much space, and wouldn't play its loud rock and roll CDs after 10 p.m. at night, or leave beer bottles all over the outer rim.

So please, if you have a galaxy or a spare flat or cottage, this hole needs a home!!
