morning paper, you just wouldn't be able to let anybody know—for that fraction of a second before space, time, physics, and your body break down and are irreversibly altered by the singularity.
At some point beyond the event horizon of a black hole, general relativity breaks down due to the extreme curvature of space, and a different model of space and time must be used to describe what takes place; a quantum theory of gravity is needed. Currently, there are numerous theories of quantum gravity, and which—if any—is right is still up for debate. A paper set to appear in an upcoming issue of Physical Review Letters uses one type of superstring theory to describe what the interior of a black hole would look like, thermodynamically speaking.
