Daf Shvui/Weekly Daf: Give me forty minutes or so and I'll give you a daf or so

From the fantastical world of sea monsters we dive back into the constructed world of law. First, how does one buy a ship? But then, even more problematic, how does one buy something that cannot be touched—such as debt? We are also going a bit into the weeds of later Sages editing and rewriting earlier Sages and other such anomalies.All in this week's daf. This week's daf can be found in the following places:1. Vilna page (Hebrew and Aramaic) from Hebrewbooks.org2. Hebrew and English from Sefaria.org3. Hebrew and Aramaic with many commentaries from Alhatorah.orgPlease be in touch with any comments, criticisms, or witticisms at thewidowandthebrothers@gmail.comBecome a Patron of Daf Shvui @ Patreon.
