Talmudic Tall Tales and Yarns

The section of Bava Batra we're at right now (pages 73-76) contains a long series of fantastic tales; Mark Twain would have appreciated them had he had the access. Unlikely as it may sound, the first page or two resemble... Star Wars. No, there's no Republic, no Empire (that would be Rome) and no Jedi. But the reality described... what can I tell you? If there's any way you can go and see for yourself, do so.

It's available on Jewish Virtual Library, but the page numbers you mentioned won't be referenced that way.
