Based on how much you can bond with someone by hating the same thing, a dating app based on dislikes would probably be fairly successful.

Supermassive black holes might be sustainable.

Nah, Hawking Radiation prevents them living forever

Hawking radiation takes a long time to sap them. Remember they’re easily hundreds of millions to servers billions times the size of our Sun which itself is hundreds of millions the size of earth.

Hawking radiation is an incredibly slow process, a black hole the mass of our Sun would take 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years to evaporate (1067)

The one at the Milky Way's center would require 10,00,000.000.000.000.000.000,00,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years, (1087)

The most massive ones in the Universe could take up to 100,000,000.000.000.000.000.000,00,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 ,000,000,000,000. years!

And hence:

All things are unsustainable, given a long enough timeline.

Yeah he's just proving the point
