I thought this interesting
I could comment and say that black holes suck...
At distance they're not different from any other massive object, in that there is a gravitational pull, but no real "sucking action"...
I'm of the opinion that you can't suck in the vacuum of space (not in the literal sense anyway, I do actually know someone that would suck even in a vacuum).
I'm not sure though, that once an object is sufficiently close to lose its mass into the black hole, that there is some suction involved also.
This effect though, surely would be negligible compared to the gravitational pull...?
So black holes suck a little bit...?
