Pesachim 99: How Hard It Is to Keep Quiet

A neat solution for the lost Korban Pesach. Plus: the value of a science, for both the fool and the wise, including context! Also: Chapter 10! Coming to the matzah with an appetite. And the four cups, which demonstrates the freedom of Seder night (as well as the expense and how to handle it). That is, the class equalizer, at least in concept, of the seder. Plus, the Gemara’s question about why Erev Pesach proffers a concern about appetite, and now every other holiday and Shabbat.
