Why is a daughter not killed for being a wayward child?  In order to be killed for being a wayward son, one needs to eat a certain amount of meat and drink a certain amount of wine.  However, there are various conditions set by the rabbis as to what type of meat/wine, what kind of meal, in what company, etc.  The dangers of wine are discussed through the lens of various stories/texts in the Tanach, including Adam, Noah, and King Solomon and additionally,  a debate about what type of tree the tree of knowledge was.  Details regarding exceptions brought in the mishna are discussed and compared to other sources that seem to contradict.
