    From the movie "interstellar" we have Miller's Planet, orbiting a black hole just outside the Roche limit. High gravity (130% of Earth's), extreme time dilation of 1 hr planet time / 7 years off-planet (with frame dragging as well), and 4,000ft-high tidal waves that sweep the surface about once an hour (local frame of reference).

    I prefer my planets be much farther than that from a black hole.
