I was thinking; what shape does a black hole have?. By 'Shape', I mean its form (e.g, circle , cylinder, sphere, torus, etc..).
We usually think of black holes as if they're plugholes (e.g, a flat circular object), but what if they're spherical? A spherical black hole would make much more sense. I would imagine than a black hole shaped like a basketball would be capable of pulling more mass towards it than a flat one, as it has a higher surface-to-volume ratio to do so.
Edit I know that it's probably a sphere, but when you think about it, a cylinder could also be a potential shape.
