comment Where's Piece Number 10?
Funnily enough, this actually happened to me a few years ago! I had made a mental note of where I'd hidden all 10 pieces, then I couldn't find the last one where I thought it was. I lost years of my life in the 5 minutes between discovering the loss... and finding the missing chometz, still in my pocket...! Since then I've always kept a written list of all the hiding places!

Yes, I did see the gemara in Nedarim, but it only adds to the kashya - once again, there's the "ben gilo" in the gemara that failed to make it into halacha...

@Yaakov, OK point taken. So maybe the "10 tribes" were really 9... doesn't really affect the point I'm making here... :)
