Actually, the event horizon is much smaller: the horizon shadow we see is far larger than the real thing, and all points on the EH are mapped onto the visible shadow multiple times. This is because straight-line spacetime is wrapped around the back by gravitational attraction!

Don’t! The scale of the universe is the same down to the quantum level. People are roughly half way.
