Why is the precise second something was manufactured or shipped so
urgent? As a consumer, the only manufaturer-originated date-stamps I
ever notice on medicines are expiration dates with a granularity of
one month. The pharmacist adds things like the date they bottled
your prescription and the date you can refill it through, which have
one-day granularity.
