Breadcrumb: A bad picnic spot

Note to any time-travelers in the audience: if you go back to ancient Hebrew Canaan and find a house that's quarantined because of disease, that's a bad place to take a nap or have a quick bite to eat. Lev. 14:46-47 notes that anyone unfortunate enough to do these things is unclean until evening, and needs to wash his clothes. Just another example of "contact uncleanliness."
