Through the work of Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose, spacetime singularities, also known as blackholes, have become part of our popular culture. I remember reading "A Brief History of Time" and being blown away by the fantastic ideas in it; for me, the most impressive thing was that it gave real meaning to the math and physics I learned in high school..

This piece entertains the fanciful idea of having a blackhole in your livingroom--a place for your secrets and anything else you'd rather not share with others. How important it is to have your own private blackhole! I come back to this in "The inviolability of the secret."
