Today I know exactly where I’m heading — back to the year 1629, when Rav Yom Tov Lipman Heller, better known as the Tosfos Yom Tov, was imprisoned. I’ll just tap the year into my Locometer.

Excuse me while I give the Locometer a quick bang — it’s the best way to fix anything — THWACK! No, it still hasn’t done the trick.
