Leave your fingerprints on a place where somebody will be murdered
half an hour after your departure and you will be put to prison. This
really happens in many countries. If your fingerprints are not
timestamped and the murder is not timestamped, you will have problems
to give an evidence that you were not there in the time of the murder.
In many countries people cannot get job due to medical records.
