Also, so interesting effects would be seen by an observer who stayed behind (a safe distance from the Black Hole). First of all, the observer would never actually see you cross the event horizon. This is because of time dilation. You would appear to be gettng closer and closer, but never actually cross the event horizon. It would also be very hard to see you anyway as the light reflecting off you would have a hard time getting away from the gravitational pull of the hole. As you got closer, light would leave the area with longer and longer wavelengths because of gravitational red shift. This would make you very difficult to see as the light shifted out of the visible spectrum.
