gigantic black hole
I know little of black holes - but I don't think size matters.

That's just something that women say. They don't really mean it.

Actually, it does, depending on what you want to do with it.

I think you can fall into a gigantic black hole, at least for a "while", before you run into all the stuff that's trying to get out.

OTOH, falling into a typical black hole will have you stretched, and pulled apart down to the particle level relatively quickly.
