Sitting in the sun (between the rain storms)
This just boggled me at every step. A black hole 17 billion times the mass of our sun, consuming the mass of our sun per day and an accretion disk 7 lightyears across. Oh, and 12 billion lightyears away.

 
Not unlike the all-consuming, voracious black hole that is my ex wife. Had I only but detected her nature before getting sucked in...
