A daf of aggadah…5 statements of R. Eliezer, including about the creation of Woman, and Adam’s extreme means of recognizing her as his mate. Also, a statement if theodicy, perhaps, that the tribulations that other nations have caused Bnei Yisrael as a negative model for them. Plus, some characterizations of the sages and their wives. Also, decrees that seem to be against Jewish celebration of Babylonian holidays, with specific cause and event of bad things… Which is not a comfortable approach nowadays.
