Ask a Physicist: How long does it take for you to fall into a black hole?

In it's ongoing "Ask a Physicist, " series, the folks over at IO9 deal with the question, if a black hole warps time and space at the event horizon, how long does it really take to fall in and does anything ever REALLY take the final plunge?

The question has merit and the answer is really well informed though a bit lengthy, so I suggest that one meander over and read the complete article. That would be much better than me cutting and pasting and possibly taking something out of context.
